ChiroSH Online

ChiroSH (Chiropractic Subject Headings) is a controlled vocabulary created by members of the Chiropractic Library Collaboration, an organization affiliated with the Association of Chiropractic Colleges. ChiroSH is used by the Index to Chiropractic Literature’s indexers, and by catalogers in health sciences libraries. This online version (under development) is an innovation we hope will be widely used by students, chiropractors and researchers. The first edition of ChiroSH was released in 1984 and the seventh edition is currently in production.

Also known as: Grostic Procedure

Developed by John F. Grostic, D.C., and the Cox brothers. The Grostic Procedure originated as a means of precisely measuring the misalignments of the atlas and axis and this is still its prime function. It provides a means of evaluating various adjusting procedures. [ICLID 25144]
