Evidence-based practice & chiropractic care

Is chiro evidence-based?

Chiropractic care is evidence-based. National and international researchers, both within and outside the chiropractic profession, are actively involved in studying the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic for patient care. The Association supports  ongoing Alberta research as well as national research from the Canadian Chiropractic Guideline initiative.

This growing body of evidence continues to prove the value of chiropractic care with consistently high marks for clinical effectiveness, cost efficiency and patient satisfaction.
