Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of a chiropractic patient’s income on the role of chiropractic medicine in his/her life, the effect of a chiropractic patient’s income on the frequency of his/her visits to a chiropractor, and the effect of the role of chiropractic medicine in a patient’s life on the frequency of his/her visits to a chiropractor. Data was collected through anonymous surveys of 442 in-house chiropractic patients at Coren Chiropractic Care (Norwalk, CT), Cranbury Chiropractic Care (Norwalk, CT), and Peterson Chiropractic (Ridgefield, CT). The results indicate that high-income patients are more likely to use chiropractic as a complement than low-income patients and that low-income patients are more likely to use chiropractic as a substitute than high-income patients.
