Three New Chiropractic Studies Underway

While the efficacy of chiropractic treatment for acute/chronic low back pain and certain types of persistent headaches is well established, Western States Chiropractic College (WSCC) in Portland, Oregon, is furthering this research with three new studies. Two of the studies address the question of how the frequency of chiropractic treatments affects the overall outcome of the therapy regimen. The third involves looking at the effectiveness of a particular chiropractic diagnostic technique. WSCC is part of three research centers funded by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine through the National Institutes of Health (NCCAM/NIH).
