American Medical Association Endorses Chiropractic Care

Adjust

In 2013 The American Medical Association went on record endorsing chiropractic care in a patient information synopsis: “Many treatments are available for low back pain… people benefit from chiropractic therapy.”

 

And earlier this year the AMA published a new guideline for low back pain that recommends physicians delay pharmacologic management until the patient has tried spinal manipulation.
