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.


An idea posited by B.J. Palmer stating that the body has a tendency to heal itself. According to this idea, forces are transmitted from the brain through the spinal column and into the nerves.

The integrated neuromuscular inhibition technique (INIT) is a manual MTrPs deactivation technique, which has been described by Chaitow. It includes the combination of the ischemic compression technique, the strain-counterstrain technique, and the muscle energy technique. Sadaat et al reported that 1 session of the INIT is able to reduce pain and pressure pain threshold (PPT) in individuals with CMNP due to MTrPs in the upper trapezius muscle. Nagrale et al claimed that the INIT is more effective than the muscle energy technique in improving pain, disability, and range of motion (ROM) in individuals with neck pain, whereas Sibby et al suggested that the INIT is equally effective with laser application in upper trapezius MTrPs.
