CAM Use Keeps on Climbing
According to the latest federal survey on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) utilization in the U.S., nearly four in 10 adults (38.3 percent) and one in nine children (11.8 percent) use CAM, and musculoskeletal conditions constitute the number-one reason for visiting a CAM provider. In fact, "back pain or problem" and "neck pain or problem" rank first and second in terms of conditions for which adults use CAM therapies (17.1 percent and 5.9 percent, respectively), while "back or neck pain" is the second most common reason for child CAM use (6.7 percent of children). This marked the first time CAM use among children has been evaluated by the government.
