Evidence Based Care

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.

Neurovertebral Influence Upon the Autonomic Nervous System

In a 2 part series, Rome assessed nearly 500 papers addressing spine-related neural reflexes upon organic symptoms, signs and conditions and the somato-autonomic influence. This incredible resource should be read by every practicing chiropractor, particularly those who see the value of chiropractic care as limited to musculoskeletal pain syndromes. The review includes visceral, immune, endocrine, and cognitive issues.
