  Title Special Commentary by Dr. James Cox - MDs publish about success with HVLA spinal manipulation [editorial]
Journal J Acad Chiropr Orthoped (JACO). 2013 Mar;10(1):Online access only p 19-20
Peer Review No
Publication Type Editorial

Excerpt: Here is a most alarming article from Germany. It is comparing relief of acute low back pain treated with high velocity low amplitude spinal manipulation to NSAID drugs (Diclofenac) and placebo. The high velocity adjustment was far superior in relief to drugs. What is most interesting is that this is the lead article in Spine (Volume 38, Number 7, April 1, 2013) was done by Medical Doctors performing the spinal manipulation. Our profession has spent over one hundred years perfecting such treatment and having done so - the medical profession takes it over without even a mention of Chiropractic. My opinion is that if our profession submitted this paper to Spine, it would be rejected on the basis that it was biased.

[This is the paper discussed: von Heymann WJ, Schloemer P, Timm J, Muehlbauer B. Spinal high-velocity low amplitude manipulation in acute nonspecific low back pain: A double-blinded randomized controlled trial in comparison with diclofenac and placebo. Spine 2013 Apr 1;38(7):540-8. PubMed Record]
