This article focuses on the importance of compliance to chiropractic prescribed home remedies in the treatment of diseases in Canada. Canadians are often confronted with health conditions that impede their lifestyles. To overcome health related limitations individuals often seek assistance from chiropractors or other allied health care professionals. However, despite the recognized benefits of at home exercise programs, patients continue to remain non-compliant to prescribed routines. There is a need for the identification of factors influencing compliance and to suggest intervention strategies that may improve adherence to home-based exercise prescription by chiropractors.
