A Comparative Study of the Health Status of Children Raised Under the Health Care Models of Chiropractic and Allopathic Medicine

Two hundred pediatricians and two hundred chiropractors that were randomly selected and sent a survey to determine any differences were to be found in the health status of their respective children as raised under different health care models. Nearly 43% of the medical children had suffered from tonsillitis, compared to less than 27% of the chiropractic children. Lower antibiotic use and lower incidence of disease was also reported in the chiropractic children.
