Further refinements in treatment techniques and frequencies resulted in improved patient response and reduced the number of treatments required. Data was retrieved from the charts of 100 new patients seen between January and June of 1997 and the results are quite encouraging. There were 50 patients with head, neck or face pain resulting from chronic myofascial complaints. There were five acute cervical and 21 with chronic low back complaints. The rest were shoulder, other extremity or thoracic pain. Most of the patients were referred to the clinic by a medical physician, chiropractor, naturopathic physician or another patient. We defined chronic as pain lasting longer than 90 days after the precipitating trauma.
