Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Over a year has passed since the Conference on the Biology of Manual Therapies, though it was an event that may have a significant impact on chiropractic research in the coming years. The conference was held on the campus of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus in Bethesda, Maryland on June 9th and 10, 2005. Primarily a project of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), and held at NCCAM’s headquarters, the Conference on the Biology of Manual Therapies was cosponsored by the NIH and its Canadian equivalent, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. NCCAM’s mission is to explore complementary and alternative healing practices in the context of rigorous science. NCCAM has dedicated significant resources to train, encourage, and support skilled investigators. Their aim is to support and broaden the knowledge base on safe and effective CAM healthcare practices. Those unfamiliar with NCCAM may find out more about the missions and goals of that organization through its website, Although this report comes long after the conference is over, it incorporates the updates issued in the months since; and further, it is intended to encourage chiropractic practitioners and researchers to learn more about NCCAM and its effect on the chiropractic profession.
