Peer Review No
Publication Type Article

Despite the continuing popularity and utilization of chiropractic services by children and their parents, there is a continuous challenge regarding the safety and effectiveness of the chiropractic care of children. Contemporaneously, chiropractors face denial for reimbursement by third party payors for services rendered to children. The primary reason provided being that the chiropractic care of children is “experimental or investigational. The reason often cited for the declaration that the chiropractic care of children is “investigational or experimental” is the supposed lack of research evidence. This type of thinking is not only incongruent with the principles of evidence-informed practice but the individuals who promote this type of thinking are naïve regarding what differentiates clinical practice from research. This commentary will address the question of, “Is the chiropractic care of children investigational or experimental?” from an evidence-informed perspective.
