Research, studies, and journal articles are very important to the practicing chiropractor because they can confirm the efficacy of chiropractic adjustments, challenge our current ideas, explain how the body works, and provide evidence for or against treatment options.
Research studies are not always accurate, however, and can be influenced by any number of issues: faulty study guidelines, researcher bias, statistical mistakes, etc. So it's always important to go back over time and verify research studies and observe trends.
Dr. Anthony Rosner, Ph.D., who is the Director of Research at International College of Applied Kinesiology (USA) has done the chiropractic profession an immense service by putting together a document that he titles: "A Comprehensive Review of Chiropractic Research."
If you have ever wondered if chiropractic works, why chiropractic works, if chiropractic is evidence-based medicine, if chiropractic is safe, if chiropractic can help in wellness or prevention, or even if chiropractic can help headaches or neck pain or many other conditions, then it is worth your time to look through Dr. Rosner's review. It's a lengthy document, but there is a very helpful table of contents to guide your study.
