CCGI Webinar Series and Learning Modules Latest Mixer chiropractors "mix" diagnostic and treatment approaches from chiropractic, medical and/or osteopathic viewpoints and make up the majority of chiropractors.[21] Unlike straight chiropractors, mixers believe subluxation is one of many causes of disease, and hence they tend to be open to mainstream medicine.[21] Many of them incorporate mainstream medical diagnostics and employ conventional treatments including techniques of physical therapy such as exercise, stretching, massage, ice packs, electrical muscle stimulation, therapeutic ultrasound, and moist heat.[21] Some mixers also use techniques from alternative medicine, including nutritional supplements, acupuncture, homeopathy, herbal remedies, and biofeedback.[21] WFC Events Health Store Social Center Video gallery Job Search Advice: Freedom of Information Act  |  Privacy & Security Statement  |  Disclaimers  |  Customer Survey  |  Important Web Site Notices Exercises Improved movement in your neck, shoulders, back and torso MedicineNet Dr. Brook Wallace - Fuquay Varina, NC Chiropractor The other famous chiropractic legal case is Wilks vs. American Medical Association (AMA), fought from 1976 to 1987. Previously, AMA rules made it officially unethical for medical doctors to associate or refer patients to chiropractors. A federal antitrust suit was brought against the American Medical Association (AMA) and 10 other institutional co-defendants by chiropractor Chester A. Wilk, DC, and four co-plaintiffs. After many years of appeals, the case ultimately concluded with a ruling against the AMA, specifically finding them guilty of prevent physicians from referring patients to chiropractors (violating Section 1, but not Section 2, of the Sherman Antitrust Act). The judge expressed faith in the AMA’s goodwill and “subjective belief that chiropractic was not in the best interests of patients,” but still judged that their “concern for scientific method in patient care could have been adequately satisfied in a manner less restrictive of competition.” The AMA nows permits medical doctors to refer patients to chiropractors. “Chiropractors crowed about their victory,” writes Dr. Harriet Hall, “but it actually did little to change ‘discriminatory’ practices or to enhance the reputation of chiropractic.” 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.

While the strongest evidence in support of chiropractic involves the treatment of back pain, Schneider says there’s also evidence for neck pain and some types of non-migraine headaches.

But here’s the thing: not all pharmaceuticals are the same. Organizational skills. Self-employed chiropractors may need to schedule appointments, manage employees, bill insurance companies, and maintain patients’ files. Good recordkeeping and other organizational skills are critical in running a successful business. Wellness Gardens 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.
