  Title Nutritional intervention in chiropractic clinical practice: The chiropractic student's perspective
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1990 May;13(4):195-203
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

A survey of chiropractic students reveals that they regard chiropractors as a knowledgeable source of information about nutrition. While the dissonance produced by the use of nutrients in clinical practice may be overcome by denying that this constitutes drug therapy, the controversies of appropriate use need to be addressed. The challenge faced by chiropractic undergraduate nutrition education involves identification of justifiable nutritional interventions, selection of effective doses and an awareness of the potential side effects. By resolving to match or better the medical profession as a source of nutritional health care, the future chiropractor has unwittingly embraced the cost-benefit paradigm of medical drug therapy.
