Phone: (269) 964-1441 Numerous controlled clinical studies of treatments used by chiropractors have been conducted, with conflicting results.[4] Systematic reviews of this research have not found evidence that chiropractic manipulation is effective, with the possible exception of treatment for back pain.[4] A critical evaluation found that collectively, spinal manipulation was ineffective at treating any condition.[9] Spinal manipulation may be cost-effective for sub-acute or chronic low back pain but the results for acute low back pain were insufficient.[10] The efficacy and cost-effectiveness of maintenance chiropractic care are unknown.[11] There is not sufficient data to establish the safety of chiropractic manipulations.[12] It is frequently associated with mild to moderate adverse effects, with serious or fatal complications in rare cases.[13] There is controversy regarding the degree of risk of vertebral artery dissection, which can lead to stroke and death, from cervical manipulation.[14] Several deaths have been associated with this technique[13] and it has been suggested that the relationship is causative,[15][16] a claim which is disputed by many chiropractors.[16] Jump up ^ O'Connor D, Marshall S, Massy-Westropp N (2003).

This review summarizes the available evidence on the diagnostic accuracy of imaging compared to surgery for identifying LDH. The diagnostic accuracy of CT, myelography and MRI of today is unknown, as the authors found no studies evaluating currently utilised advanced imaging techniques. Moderate diagnostic accuracy for CT, myelography and MRI was demonstrated for older techniques. SHARE Or so they say. Jump up ^ Palmer DD (1911-05-04). "D.D.

Dr. Michael Hooker and Dr. Julia Thomson Current research: A recent comprehensive meta-analysis of all clinical trials of manipulation has concluded that there was good evidence for its use in acute, sub-acute, and chronic low back pain, while the evidence for use in radiculopathy was not as strong, but still positive. (Lawrence, 2008) A Delphi consensus study based on this meta-analysis has made some recommendations regarding chiropractic treatment frequency and duration. They recommend an initial trial of 6-12 visits over a 2-4 week period, and, at the midway point as well as at the end of the trial, there should be a formal assessment whether the treatment is continuing to produce satisfactory clinical gains. If the criteria to support continuing chiropractic care (substantive, measurable functional gains with remaining functional deficits) have been achieved, a follow-up course of treatment may be indicated consisting of another 4-12 visits over a 2-4 week period. According to the study, “One of the goals of any treatment plan should be to reduce the frequency of treatments to the point where maximum therapeutic benefit continues to be achieved while encouraging more active self-therapy, such as independent strengthening and range of motion exercises, and rehabilitative exercises. Patients also need to be encouraged to return to usual activity levels despite residual pain, as well as to avoid catastrophizing and overdependence on physicians, including doctors of chiropractic.” (Globe, 2008) These recommendations are consistent with the recommendations in ODG, which suggest a trial of 6 visits, and then 12 more visits (for a total of 18) based on the results of the trial, except that the Delphi recommendations in effect incorporate two trials, with a total of up to 12 trial visits with a re-evaluation in the middle, before also continuing up to 12 more visits (for a total of up to 24). Payors may want to consider this option for patients showing continuing improvement, based on documentation at two points during the course of therapy, allowing 24 visits in total, especially if the documentation of improvement has shown that the patient has achieved or maintained RTW. This systematic review concluded that there is moderate quality evidence that spinal manipulation is effective for the treatment of acute lumbar radiculopathy, but there is no evidence for the treatment of thoracic radiculopathy. (Leininger, 2011) Based on high-quality evidence in adults with chronic low back pain, SMT vs other interventions has a small statistically significant, but not clinically relevant, short-term effect on pain relief and functional status, and referral for SMT should be based on cost considerations and patient and provider preferences. (Rubinstein, 2011) A NASS systematic review suggested that 5 to 10 sessions of SMT administered over 2 to 4 weeks achieve equivalent or superior improvement in pain and function compared with other commonly used interventions. (Dagenais, 2010) All three interventions (manipulation, supervised exercise, and home exercise) had good outcomes in this RCT, but supervised exercise had a slight edge. (Bronfort, 2011) This RCT assessed the efficacy of spinal manipulation/mobilization (manual therapy) followed by specific active exercises and concluded that manual therapy accelerates reduced disability compared to exercise alone. (Balthazard, 2012) Osteopathic manual therapy (OMT) did well in this RCT. With 6 treatment sessions during a course of 8 weeks, 50% of the OMT group and 35% of the sham OMT group reported substantial improvement (relative risk [RR], 1.41). (Licciardone, 2013) According to this systematic review, there is a paucity of quality clinical trials testing osteopathic manual therapy in adult patients with chronic non-specific low back pain, and more data is required. (Orrock, 2013) In patients with back-related leg pain, spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) plus home exercise and advice (HEA) provided more short-term improvement in pain and function than HEA alone. SMT plus HEA demonstrated a clinically significant advantage over HEA after 12 weeks, but not at 52 weeks. At 12 weeks, 37% of patients receiving SMT plus HEA had at least a 75% reduction in leg pain, compared with 19% in the HEA group. (Bronfort, 2014) The AHRQ draft comparative effectiveness review of noninvasive treatments for low back pain concluded that spinal manipulation was no more effective than sham manipulation, but manipulation was as effective as other interventions thought to be effective.

You’re doing it! Spend some time here exploring our chiropractic philosophy and our patient-centric procedures. Research rankings Was this paid for by the pharmaceutical industry? You know, the ones who make the drugs that are the leading cause of death in the US after heart attack and stroke? They certainly have an enormous financial interest in keeping us addicted to their pain meds rather than using drug-free solutions like chiropractic. Oh, and my personal interest in this is that I’ve used chripractors to treat pain caused by a spinal deformity 40 years without any problems — and without using drugs. OR surgery. So someone died in Jakarta, that’s a tragedy; but thousands are dying each year from the prescribed use of pain medications, taken as directed.

Derek Page The only studied identified by name was that in July 2014 by the Professional Standards Council and they did not study actual chiropractic practices or patient results. They studied the operation of an administrative council for chiropractors in general. HIPAA Policy X Chiropractors are not normally licensed to write medical prescriptions or perform major surgery in the United States,[61] (although New Mexico has become the first US state to allow "advanced practice" trained chiropractors to prescribe certain medications.[62][63]). In the US, their scope of practice varies by state, based on inconsistent views of chiropractic care: some states, such as Iowa, broadly allow treatment of "human ailments"; some, such as Delaware, use vague concepts such as "transition of nerve energy" to define scope of practice; others, such as New Jersey, specify a severely narrowed scope.[64] US states also differ over whether chiropractors may conduct laboratory tests or diagnostic procedures, dispense dietary supplements, or use other therapies such as homeopathy and acupuncture; in Oregon they can become certified to perform minor surgery and to deliver children via natural childbirth.[61] A 2003 survey of North American chiropractors found that a slight majority favored allowing them to write prescriptions for over-the-counter drugs.[37] A 2010 survey found that 72% of Swiss chiropractors considered their ability to prescribe nonprescription medication as an advantage for chiropractic treatment.[65] Rototuna, Hamilton 3201 University of Southern Florida 7 more MD Approval Needed? scroll to top of page I see you didn’t understand Prof Ernst’s point about benefit-harm balance.
