Abstract/Notes Excerpt: Is Chiropractic ready for research? This is a most interesting question that can be approached on multiple fronts.
1. Academically – What do we mean by the terms “chiropractic” or “research?” What do we mean when we say “ready?”
2. Scientifically – Are we talking about the entire profession or a subset? Do we make an assumption that our external validity will make our data generalizable to the universe of potential chiropractic respondents?
3. Historically – Were we ready for research when B.J.introduced the neurocalometer? Were we ready when Janse and Illi published their seminal work on the Spine: The Lifeline of the Body? Were we ready when NIH hosted a conference on the Status of Spinal Manipulative Therapy? Were we ready when Scott Haldeman started to organize profession wide scientific conferences?
4. Economically – What have you felt when the Canadians were being subjected to the turmoil of the Inquest on Strokes caused by Manipulation? Did your feelings change when the Neck Pain Task Force published their findings? Did any of this impact your practice?
5. Socially – Surveys have demonstrated a growing use of “alternative therapies” over the last two decades. CAM continues to grow in acceptance and recognition. Chiropractic doesn’t seem to be reaping the benefits of this in North America. Why?
