Journal J Chiropr Educ. 2003 Fall;17(2):105-112
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Purpose: To describe chiropractor's patterns of use and perceptions of educational quality regarding exercise therapy for low back pain.

Methods: A two-page questionnaire was mailed to a random sample of 450 U.S. chiropractors. Respondents were asked to indicate which exercises they regularly used for the management of low back pain, and to rate the quality of their formal chiropractic education in preparing them to utilize each of the 10 specified exercises.

Results: The response rate was 35.1% (n = 158). Seventy-six percent of the respondents regularly used six or more exercises. Stretching/flexibility and abdominal strengthening exercises were regularly used by the highest percentage of respondents (91.6% and 87.4%, respectively). Three of the 10 exercises received "good" or "excellent" ratings for perceived educational quality from greater than 50% of the respondents. In general, clinical use paralleled perceived educational quality and whether or not the respondents received training for a specified exercise.
