Regarding the spine, chiropractic had to prove its efficiency and reliability across clinical studies and has been subjected to more research than any other health branch in the area of the spine, and therefore has a wider range of scientific evidence that other treatments. Because of the importance of neuro- musculoskeletal disorders in our society , the investigation shows an exponential growth year after year, consolidating the leading role of chiropractic care in this area. In 1993, the British Medical Association (BMA ) defines chiropractic as “the best example of a new profession with very good clinical research quality to establish its reliability and efficiency.” * (Complementary Medicine: New Approaches to good practice. Oxford,England: British Medical Association, OxfordUniversity Press. 1993; 138.)”
Regarding the lack of information about it in Colombia, we have summarized below some of these studies that describe the reliability and cost compared to other conventional treatments. We have selected independent chiropractic studies, those who were developed by governments, independent research organizations and scientist, published in medical journals.
Many of those studies have been commissioned by governments and used to regulate the health professions in various countries. Those countries have introduced chiropractic in their health systems after observing its benefits.
