Nurses Perception of Chiropractic Favorable

A random sample of 1000 nurses throughout the United States was surveyed to determine their thoughts on complementary and alternative therapies. About half of the respondents perceived there was conclusive evidence or preponderance of evidence that five therapies were effective: biofeedback, chiropractic, meditation/relaxation, multi-vitamins, and massage therapy. The same amount of nurses also perceived five therapies as definitely safe: hypnotherapy, chiropractic, acupressure, acupuncture, and healing touch.
