Evidence-based, Adjustment-centric chiropractic: the foundation of clinical certainty and success with james chestnut


Friday 20th October, 9:00am - 5:00pm

In order to have the scientific certainty required for clinical and practice success it is imperative that every chiropractor understands the neurophysiology of VSC/motion unit dysfunction and the chiropractic adjustment as well as the clinical evidence establishing chiropractic adjustment as the most evidence-based spinal healthcare intervention. It is also imperative to understand the lack of evidence for other spinal healthcare interventions, the blatant bias against chiropractic in the peer-reviewed literature and clinical practice guidelines. If we want chiropractic to survive as a unique profession we must be able to defend, with scientific evidence, the validity of the chiropractic healthcare paradigm and the unique benefit of the chiropractic adjustment.
