Description

For sample children under 18 in 2007 who had seen a practitioner for chelation in the past 12 months (CHEYR) and had used chelation to treat a specific health problem or condition (CHETREAT), CHETBNPAIN indicates whether the child had used chelation to treat back or neck pain.

Related Variables

Back or neck pain was one of 28 possible specific conditions that sample children (but not sample adults) could report treating with chelation.

 

The other such conditions are:

  • congenital heart disease (CHETCONGHD, 2007 only)
  • eczema or skin allergy (CHETECZEM, 2007 only)
  • other allergies -- children (CHETOALLC, 2007 only)
  • other heart conditions -- children (CHETOHARTC, 2007 only)
  • respiratory allergy (CHETRALL, 2007 only)
  • other skin problems--children (CHETSKINC, 2007 only)
  • non-strep sore throat (CHETSORET, 2007 only)
  • stammering or stuttering (CHETSTAM, 2007 only)
  • strep throat or tonsillitis (CHETSTREP, 2007 only)

There are 31 other conditions that both sample children and sample adults could report treating with chelation. For the full list of conditions, see CHETREAT.

Chelation is one of 16 modalities of alternative medicine that were included in the 2002 and 2007 Alternative Health Supplements. Persons could report that sample children treated back or neck pain by 15 of those methods. (The omitted alternative treatment is prayer, which was included as a treatment for specific health problems in the 2002 survey only, when just sample adults were asked about their use of alternative and complementary medicine. See PRASELFEV for more information.) Analysts interested in the treatment of back or neck pain by other alternative therapies should see CHEYR for the full list of alternative medicine treatments and a summary of other chelation-related questions, as well as definitions.

Comparability

This variable is only available for 2007. Treatment of many other specific conditions by chelation was covered in the 2002 Alternative Health Supplement, but back or neck pain was not identified as a specific condition for treatment by alternative medicine in that year. The survey classified back or neck pain as a specific health condition for children only, and sample children were not included in the 2002 Alternative Health Supplement.
