Research all over the world has proven time and time again that chiropractic is safer, more effective, and more cost effective  for treatment of low back pain, neck pain and headaches than all other forms of medical treatment. Below are some excerpts from research done around the world.

Manga et al.  The Manga Report.  1993 An Independent Report Commissioned by the Ontario Provincial Government
“On the evidence, particularly the most scientifically valid clinical studies, spinal manipulation applied by chiropractors is shown to be more effective than alternative treatments for low back pain.”

“Our reading of the literature suggests that chiropractic manipulation is safer than medical management of low back pain.”

“There is also some evidence in the literature to suggest that spinal manipulations are less safe and less effective when performed by non-chiropractic professionals.”

Chapman-Smith, David LL.B.  The Chiropractic Report.  (2008) The Chiropractic Profession: Basic Facts, Independent Evaluations, Common Questions Answered. Vol 22 (5) pp1-8   

“All formal government enquiries into chiropractic since the 1970s (Canada, Australia, Sweden, UK, New Zealand) have found contemporary chiropractic health care safe, effective, cost-effective and have thus recommended licensure and government funding.”

“The most comprehensive and detailed independent examination of chiropractic ever undertaken was in New Zealand in 1978/79.”

“The Commission’s 377 page report, Chiropractic in New Zealand had obvious authority and balance. It followed judicial hearings then extensive investigations by the Commission in New Zealand, the United States, Canada, England, and Australia.”

From the Chiropractic in New Zealand Commission’s report,

“By the end of the Inquiry we found ourselves irresistibly and with complete unanimity, drawn to the conclusion that modern chiropractic is a soundly-based and valuable branch of health care in a specialized area neglected by the medical profession.”

“For patients with common or mechanical back pain and neck pain/headache there is now a change from extensive diagnostic testing, rest, medication for pain control, and surgical intervention based on structural pathology as in traditional medical practice, to exercise, manual treatments, early mobilization of patients, and education about the spine and lifestyle, based on functional pathology as in traditional chiropractic practice.”

“This management approach is not only effective but highly cost-effective.”
