The Ethics of Chiropractic Care For Patients In Marietta

Dec 7, 2016

Every interaction between medical professionals and patients is based on trust. Patients must be able to trust their doctor.

To preserve this faith, most medical professionals have developed some code of ethics that dictate their approach to treating and supporting patients.

The Chiropractors at AICA Marietta are no exception to this.

Researchers within the world of Chiropractic care have conducted numerous studies that highlight the value Chiropractic offers the medical community, as well as to patients in need.

A recent survey provided by Palmer and Gallup discovered that more than half of all adults living in the United States trust Chiropractors, while 63 percent of adults believe they have their patients’ best interests in mind.
