What Research has Shown

Chiropractic Care - What Research has Shown

For almost twenty years we have often been asked if chiropractic really works and if Network Spinal Analysis will help me. There have been thousands of studies published around the world (not to mention many of our own success stories) that attest to the effectiveness of chiropractic care. But due to a lack of information in the main-stream media, the public is often skeptical. The research also demonstrates that chiropractic has exceptional results for improving spinal and neural function as well as the quality of life. Here at Network Family Wellness Center, we strive to educate our practice members as to the many proven advantages of chiropractic care.
You can download some of the chiropractic research studies that have been done on Network care as well as those that Drs. Daniel and Richelle Knowles, D.C. themselves have published by clicking the links below:

Research undertaken in collaboration with neurobiologists and medical professionals at the University of California, Irvine has shown conclusively that there are tangible quality of life benefits to receiving Network Spinal Analysis based care. The study focused on a population of 2,818 chiropractic users from across the globe. They were assessed to determine the effects on their emotional and physical health resulting from their participation in Network Spinal Analysis. In general, study subjects reported improvements in their physical health and their sense of general well-being, as well as a renewed positive attitude to life.

The reported benefits are detailed below, and fall into a number of categories:
