The chiropractic Journal of Australia compare chiropractic and medical management of 1,996 cases of work-related mechanical low back pain.  The number of compensation days (days off from work) taken by claimants was found to be significantly lower; an average of 6.26 days for chiropractic patients and 25.56 days for medial patients.  The average cost of compensation for chiropractic management was $392 and for medical management was $1,569 or four times greater than chiropractic management.  Additionally, more patients progressed to chronic status when medical care was chosen.
