Title Research: crown jewel of chiropractic [editorial]
Journal JACA Online. 2005 Aug;42(6):Online access only p 2-5
Peer Review No
Publication Type Editorial
Abstract/Notes Providers that survive and thrive in this highly competitive health care market will excel in two areas: proving their worth--and improving service to patients. And while many in chiropractic continue to view research as unrelated to their practices, those who embrace both say that any split between the two is a serious barrier to progress, a barrier that's becoming increasingly costly in terms of effectiveness, credibility, and economics.

Chiropractic research is a key to better patient outcomes and increased credibility in the public eye and among health care professionals. In addition, MDs are much more likely to refer to doctors of chiropractic who, like themselves, incorporate research evidence into their practices. In the area of reimbursement, 3rd-party payers want to work with evidence-based practitioners who can show that what they do is based on science--and whose knowledge of the research helps get patients back on their feet faster.
