One of the things I thoroughly enjoy each month is reviewing chiropractic research. Here are some of my favourites. Each has tremendous potential for further investigation and further research is needed before clear public health messages can be developed. I hope you enjoy the read.
Surgery Less Likely if a Doctor of Chiropractic is Seen First
A study looking at 1885 workers, 174 of which had lumbar spine surgery in the last three years, sought to identify early predictors of having lumbar spine surgery. The authors reported “Approximately 42.7% of workers who first saw a surgeon had surgery, in contrast to only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor. The area under the receiver operating characteristic curve of the multivariate model was 0.93 (95% confidence interval, 0.92-0.95), indicating excellent ability to discriminate between workers who would versus would not have surgery.”
