  Title Demographics and diagnostic profile of patients presenting to a university chiropractic outpatient clinic
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2003 Sep;33(3):89-92
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Objective: To report the demographic and diagnostic profiles of patients attending the Macquarie University Department of Chiropractic Clinic and Research Centre, Summer Hill, upon initial consultation.

Design and Outcome Variables: Researchers reviewed and collected data from 1018 new patient files covering the period 1999-2001. Data collected consisted of age, sex, marital status, financial status, postcode, symptomatic region and diagnosis.

Results: Of the 1018 patient files reviewed, 70% of patients were aged between 22 and 51 years of age. Patients were predominantly from the local area with no major gender bias detected. A total of 40% of patients had symptoms in the lumbar region, and the most common diagnosis was facet syndrome.

Conclusion: Whilst most of the findings were similar to those in other studies, a few differences were noted. The occurrence of disc injuries was significantly lower than those found in the general population, while gender and marital status also differed.
