Title Chiropractic research featured in the Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine [editorial]
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2016 May;15(2):Online access only p 1229
Peer Review No
Publication Type Editorial

Excerpt: Even though chiropractic care is now used annually by nearly 14% of adults,1 it is used far less by children. A 2015 analysis of National Health Interview Survey data indicated that 3% of children aged 4-17 used chiropractic, and data were not even reported for those younger than 4-years of age.2 The evidence base for chiropractic is primarily built on studies of adults with musculoskeletal complaints.3 As the health care systems of the world increasingly rely on scientific evidence of effectiveness and safety in order to authorize use of healthcare practices and treatment, it is essential that the chiropractic profession conduct high-quality research on special populations, particularly children.
