P: many people develop severe back problems during adulthood, and that virtually all such people who received chiropractic treatment showed great improvement.

C: recommended that chiropractic treatment be directed toward those adults who suffer from severe back problems.

PoE eliminates all other choices but C.

c)Individuals who receive chiropractic or other treatment prior to developing severe back problems are not less likely to develop back pain than those who do not.


Conclusion states that the treatment is recommended for adults who suffer from severe back problems. Choice C states that treatment is used as a relief from back pain and not to avoid back pain since Individuals who receive chiropractic or other treatment prior to developing severe back problems are not less likely to develop back pain than those who do not. So even if you are using the treatment without any back ailment; you would still have a chance to develop serious back problem.

Therefore, in order to minimize the proportion of the population that suffers from back pain, the Ergonomic Society recommended that chiropractic treatment be directed toward those adults who suffer from severe back problems.

Which of the following is an assumption on which the argument depends?

(A) Any person who receives chiropractic treatment for back pain may also benefit from other forms of treatment.

(B) Large insurance carriers cover chiropractic care for back problems to a lesser degree than they do other medical treatments.

(C) Individuals who receive chiropractic or other treatment prior to developing severe back problems are not less likely to develop back pain than those who do not.

(D) Chiropractic treatment is more effective in treating severe back problems when utilized over a long period of time, as opposed to sporadically.

(E) Severe back pain and other problems often cause individuals to miss workdays.


Use of POE will help here:

Conclusion : Therefore, chiropractic treatment be directed toward those adults who suffer from severe back problems.

(A) Any person who receives chiropractic treatment for back pain may also benefit from other forms of treatment. Other treatments (Irrelevant)

(B) Large insurance carriers cover chiropractic care for back problems to a lesser degree than they do other medical treatments. Irrelevant.

(C) Individuals who receive chiropractic or other treatment prior to developing severe back problems are not less likely to develop back pain than those who do not.

(D) Chiropractic treatment is more effective in treating severe back problems when utilized over a long period of time, as opposed to sporadically. Not mentioned anywhere. Irrelevant

(E) Severe back pain and other problems often cause individuals to miss workdays.[/quote] Out of scope.

Only (C) left.

IMO C

means:

"Individuals who receive chiropractic or other treatment prior to developing severe back problems are equally likely to develop back pain than those who do not"... SO, there is no point giving treatment to the people in advance...so...."Therefore, in order to minimize the proportion of the population that suffers from back pain, the Ergonomic Society recommended that chiropractic treatment be directed toward those adults who suffer from severe back pain"./... ONLY THOSE PEOPLE CAN BE TREATED WHO ARE ALREADY SUFFERING FROM PAIN... NO ADVANCE PRECAUTIONS?TREATMENTS WILL WORK..!!

What we need to look for is an an answer choice which without what is stated, the argument would fall apart.

(A) Any person who receives chiropractic treatment for back pain may also benefit from other forms of treatment.
This is irrelevant. We aren't worried about any other forms of treatment.

(B) Large insurance carriers cover chiropractic care for back problems to a lesser degree than they do other medical treatments.
Again this is irrelevant. We're not worried about the insurance carriers or how people plan to pay for their medical treatments.

(C) Individuals who receive chiropractic or other treatment prior to developing severe back problems are not less likely to develop back pain than those who do not.
This is what we're looking for. Since the Ergonomic Society recommended that chiropractic treatment be directed toward those adults who suffer from severe back problems, they are assuming that adults who receive chiropractic treatment prior to developing severe back problems won't have less of a chance of developing those problems.

(D) Chiropractic treatment is more effective in treating severe back problems when utilized over a long period of time, as opposed to sporadically.
This answer choice is tempting, however we aren't concerned with the frequency of the treatment.

(E) Severe back pain and other problems often cause individuals to miss workdays.
Again, this is irrelevant. We're not worried if people with severe back problems will miss work days or not.

The correct answer is answer choice C.
