Journal J Contemp Chiropr. 2022 ;5(1):196-205
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Objective: To determine the relationships between wellness knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors in a chiropractic student population.

Methods: Students at a chiropractic college were administered a validated Wellness Knowledge, Attitude, and Behavior Instrument (WKABI). The WKABI instrument measures knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors in the intervention areas of physical activity, nutrition, and stress management. Scores were tabulated for each section. Demographics were included as part of the instrument. Spearman’s Rho correlations, standard deviation, and mean were used to analyze the data.

Results: Knowledge scores were significantly correlated with attitude scores and were also significantly correlated with behavior scores. Attitude scores were significantly correlated with behavior scores as well. Mean scores for all subjects on the knowledge, attitude, and behavior sections were 77.3%, 86.6%, and 65.9% of the highest possible scores, respectively.

Conclusion: Significant relationships exist between wellness knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors of students at a chiropractic college. Further research will be required in this population to identify what other factors may influence wellness behaviors.
