A growing number of studies show that chiropractic is a safe and effective treatment for acute and chronic pain, headaches, and more. To help spread the word, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has compiled excerpts from some of these studies, including this recent gem:
“Manual-thrust manipulation provides greater short-term reductions in self-reported disability and pain compared with usual medical care. 94% of the manual-thrust manipulation group achieved greater than 30% reduction in pain compared with 69% of usual medical care.”
– Schneider et al (2015), Spine
“Cervical spine manipulation was associated with significant improvement in headache outcomes in trials involving patients with neck pain and/or neck dysfunction and headache.”
– McCrory, Penzlen, Hasselblad, Gray (2001), Duke Evidence Report
