Continuing from Part 1 of our blog series entitled “Research Shows Chiropractic Care Effective“, perhaps the best evidence of care from a chiropractor being effective came from the Quebec Automobile Insurance Society. They insure all care in Quebec and pay so many whiplash claims that they commissioned a task force to study all scientific information on the care of whiplash.
After 3 years reviewing 10,382 articles on neck injuries, they recommended spinal manipulation (which chiropractic doctors call adjustments). The majority of remedies commonly used were rejected as having not even been studied scientifically, including:
- Muscle relaxants
- Cervical pillows
- Spray and stretch
- Various injections
