New Research

Study shows manipulation as effective as surgery.

A multidisciplinary study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT) has concluded that 60% of patients who had failed other medical management benefited from spinal manipulation to the same degree as if they underwent surgical intervention.

Importantly, this was a collaborative study involving one chiropractor, three neurosurgeons and a senior researcher, all based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

The study may have positive implications for chiropractic and can be presented as evidence of potential cost effectiveness in any move towards integrating chiropractic into mainstream healthcare.
