Annals Of Internal Medicine Says Chiropractic Is Most Effective and Cost Effective Form of Treatment

Monday, May 5th, 2014

Since I was out of town last week and unable to compile a thorough blog together for this week, I decided I would take a small snippet of a research project that was put out in 1998. 

This one is significant because it was done jointly. 

The American College of Physicians and the American Society for Internal Medicine. These are controlled by medical profession. They aren’t, historically, big friends of the chiropractic profession so it’s always eye-opening when their research helps us chiropractors show how effective chiropractic can truly be. 

Here is the brief synopsis:

1998 – Annals of Internal Medicine, published jointly by the American College of Physicians and the American Society for Internal Medicine: “The Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) recently made history when it concluded that spinal manipulative therapy is the most effective and cost-effective treatment for acute low back pain … Perhaps most significantly, the guidelines state that unlike nonsurgical interventions, spinal manipulation offers both pain relief and functional improvement.” 

Again, we need your help to spread the news. Too many have heard the bad. Help us get the good news out there. We only see 8%-10% of the population. We have a ton of growth potential.

Please feel free to leave a comment and tell me your thoughts. I’d love to hear what you think. And….SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!!

This blog is based on information via Mr. George McAndrews found in the article at this link in Dynamic Chiropractic.

Till next time……
