Title Association between chiropractic and allopathic classroom hours of nutrition and physical activity with lifestyle modification counseling practice patterns for patients with hypertension and cardiovascular disease in the US between 1994 and 2014
Journal Nutr Perspect. 2016 Jan;39(1):18-20, 22-27
Peer Review No
Publication Type Article

In 1995 with a followup in 2010, Kushner, et al, and Kolasa, et al, found in a study of 1,030 physicians that 62% of physicians recognized a deficit in knowledge about nutrition as a barrier to providing nutritional counseling. In 2008, Hart found chiropractic concentrations revealed a stronger beneficial association with hypertension death rates compared to allopathic concentrations possibly due to the fact that Chiropractors may generally provide more counseling on healthy lifestyle habits to their patients compared to allopathic doctors.
