A comparison of the patient demographies of Victorian chiropractic and osteopathic clinics: A pilot study
Ellis, W.B. and Bonello, R. (1994) A comparison of the patient demographies of Victorian chiropractic and osteopathic clinics: A pilot study. Comsig Review, 3 (2). pp. 48-53.
While there are studies that describe the patient demographics of both Australian and American chiropractic clinics, such information appears difficult to find for physiotherapy or osteopathic clinics comparative data of any kind doesn't appear to exist. This study attempted to provide this data for Australian practices and to analyse any similarities or differences between populations.
Results obtained for chiropractors and osteopaths would appear to suggest that there may be significant differences between the diagnostic profiles of the two professions. Physiotherapists withdrew from the - process during data collection.
Suggestions are made relating to possible modifications I to the survey instrument and possible directions any future study might take.
