In 1996, Ronald Pero, Ph.D., Chief of cancer prevention research
of colic cases cleared up within 14 days of commencing of Chiropractic care in a
study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics.
The results occurred shortly after the care had been initialed and showed both a
reduction of the daily length of the colic periods and a reduction of the number
of colic periods per day. (JMPT Vol 12, Num 4, Aug. 1989 pp. 281-287)
A study published in the British Medical
Journal (BMJ) in 1995 on long-term treatment of low-back pain stated,
“Chiropractic almost certainly confers worthwhile, long-term benefits in
comparison with hospital outpatient management.”
1994, the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR), published “Acute
Low Back Problems in Adults” as part of its clinical practice guidelines. The
panel, a multidisciplinary group of health care experts, developed
recommendations on the treatment of acute low-back pain based on clinical
evidence and extensive searches of the existing scientific literature. The
findings concluded that spinal manipulation [Chiropractic adjustments] was
“safe and effective,” and recommended it as an initial form of therapy for
acute low-back pain sufferers.
More recently, a panel of 25
multidisciplinary experts concluded that spinal manipulations resulted in almost
immediate improvement for cervicogenic headaches, or those that originate in the
neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of
tension-type headache than a commonly prescribed medication. The report, titled
“Evidence Report: Behavioral and Physical Treatments for Tension-type and
Cervicogenic Headache,” was based on a literature review of several headache
treatment options. It was authored by Douglas C. McCrory, M.D., MHSc; Donald B.
Pcnzicn, Ph.D., and Rebecca N. Gray, D.PhiI.
A significant study published in Spine
found that “compared to those who sought care [for low back pain] from medical
doctors, those who sought care from chiropractors were more likely to feel that
treatment was helpful, more likely to be satisfied with their care, and less
likely to seek care from another provider for that same episode of pain.”
suffering from back and/or neck complaints experience chiropractic care as an
effective means of resolving or ameliorating pain and functional impairments,
thus reinforcing previous results showing the benefits of chiropractic treatment
for back and neck pain.” - Journal of Manipulative and Physiological
Therapeutics, Verhoefet al. (1997)
“Elderly chiropractic users were less
likely to have been hospitalized, less likely to have used a nursing home, more
likely to report a better health status, more likely to exercise vigorously, and
more likely to be mobile in the community. In addition, they were less likely to
use prescription drugs.” - Topics in Clinical Chiropractic

U.A. Lyle, M.D., stated, “I believe
Chiropractic to be the most scientific method of removing the real cause of dis-ease,
thereby allowing nature to resume normal action, which effects the recovery of
the patient from bodily ailments.” And F.C. Rutherford, M.D. stated,
“Chiropractors are obtaining results that I could not have obtained with
medicine and surgery.”
Dr. John McMillan Mennel, professor at
five medical schools and noted author, testified that two of the Chiropractic
colleges that he is familiar with were equal in academic excellence to the best
medical schools in the nation. He also noted that a new medical resident in a
hospital normally has no more than 4 hours training on the musculoskeletal
system and may actually have no training at all in some cases. Chiropractors
study for 7 years- including 4,485 hours of professional school to obtain a
Doctorate of Chiropractic. During that time they are required to pass 4 sets of
National Boards and most states have their own requirements prior to licensure.
