Chiropractic: Research Says...
I frequently hear there is no good research to support chiropractic care. This is the furthest from the truth. For the next view blogs, I will focus on some older and recent studies that indicate the benefits of chiropractic care. Let us start here (click on heading for full abstract and access to complete study):
Randomised comparison of chiropractic and hospital outpatient management for low back pain: results from extended follow up BMJ 1995; 311 doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/bmj.311.7001.349 (Published 05 August 1995) Cite this as: BMJ 1995;311:349
Bottom-line outcome: '...those treated by chiropractic derive more benefit and long term satisfaction than those treated by hospitals.'
