reported in 1993. This was an outcomes study funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and conducted in hopes of sharing information about ways to reduce the incidence of work-related injuries and to address cost-effective ways to rehabilitate disabled and injured workers. The study was conducted by three health economists led by University of Ottawa Professor Pran Manga, Ph.D. The 216-page report of the study is commonly called the Manga Report. The Manga Report overwhelmingly supported the efficacy, safety, scientific validity, and cost-effectiveness of chiropractic for low-back pain. Additionally, it found that higher patient satisfaction levels were associated with chiropractic care than with medical treatment alternatives.
“Evidence from Canada and other countries suggests potential savings of hundreds of millions annually”
— The Manga Report
The literature clearly and consistently shows that the major savings from chiropractic management come from fewer and lower costs of auxiliary services, fewer hospitalizations, and a highly significant reduction in chronic problems, as well as in levels and duration of disability.

About chiropractor

Welcome! My name is Dr. David Pearson. Please let me take a moment to share some of my background with you. I have been practicing chiropractic for over 25 years, and I am committed to providing better health and a better way of life to my patients by teaching and practicing the principles of chiropractic wellness. After completing the same undergraduate study that other types of doctors do, for me to become a Chiropractic Physician required another four years of postgraduate college education. I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic graduating summa cum laude in 1985. I have taken advanced courses in quite a few different techniques, such as Gonstead, Thompson, Logan Basic and extremity adjusting. Before going into practice I had to pass a rigorous National Board Examination and stringent licensing requirements. I currently hold licenses to practice in Florida, New York and Colorado. I am a member of the Florida Chiropractic Association (FCA). I also attend post graduate seminars each year and read professional healthcare journals to keep up with the latest research and techniques in chiropractic. I am originally from Western New York, a small town south of the Buffalo -Niagra Falls region, called Jamestown. Lucille Ball was also from Jamestown. My wife, children, and I moved to Palm Coast, Florida a year and a half ago.
