Examples of chiropractic


Randomised comparison of chiropractic and hospital outpatient management for low back pain: results from extended follow up. I use chiropractic and massage for my back pain and acupuncture for my hand tremor.

Furthermore, studies comparing the effectiveness of physiotherapy with chiropractic (8;45) to medical exercise therapy (50) and self-exercise (34;50) have been reported. This applies to the following treatments: climate therapy, psychological treatment including family therapy, hypnosis and behavioral therapy, acupuncture, homeopathy, chiropractic, yoga, reflexology, massage, qi gong, relaxation, and biofeedback. A randomized study was carried out comparing the costs and effectiveness in the treatment of back pain through chiropractic care or physiotherapy as the primary treatment. It can be quite an eye-opener to see what, for example, acupuncture, chiropractic, homeopathy or osteopathy can do where orthodox methods have failed. Various pithy guidelines were produced during the previous debate to illustrate the readiness of the chiropractic profession to receive statutory regulation. Notable exceptions to that are the chiropractic, osteopathic, acupuncture and homoeopathic professions. I know that there are some medical practitioners who practise manipulative techniques themselves which are little different from osteopathy or chiropractic. That makes chiropractic the most widely used complementary therapy after osteopathy. I have already referred to the first two—osteopathy and chiropractic care. We are examining the commissioning of alternative therapies, and osteopathy and chiropractic treatment must be considered in that context. I know what a difference it has made to have statutory regulations for osteopathy and chiropractic. In particular, it will enable chiropractic to grow within a formal framework which will nevertheless not place draconian restrictions on it. The outcome has been that not only was their case considered but the committee is recommending that chiropractics be a profession supplementary to medicine.
