  Title A comparison of patients and patient complaints at six chiropractic college teaching clinics
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1989 Apr;12(2):79-85
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Clinical Trial

A cooperative study was undertaken by six chiropractic colleges for the purpose of studying similarities and/or differences among the patients and patient complaints at the college outpatient (teaching) clinics. There were some notable differences among the clinics with respect to the standard demographic variables of age, education, employment and income. The sociodemographic characteristics of patients appeared to be different to the extent that the characteristics of the neighborhoods in which the clinics were located were different. Patients referred to the clinics by chiropractic student/interns were more likely to attend for routine physical exam than patients referred by other sources. Although marked differences were observed in patient attendance for routine physical examination, the health problems for which patients sought treatment were very similar among all the clinics. Low back complaints were the most frequently reported health complaint. The characteristics of the low back complaints were very similar at all six sites.
