Applied Chiropractic Sciences Council
Research Reference Library

The ICA Applied Sciences Council is continuously reviewing and developing research reference resources for informative and pertinent insights on Chiropractic care. 


One of the most important and frequently-requested areas for information on Chiropractic involves the combinations of the Cost-Effectiveness of Chiropractic Care and the Efficacy of Chiropractic! This concise yet comprehensive Research Reference Review provides critical, carefully-referenced summaries of a wide range of health care studies.

Two main concerns in health care are effectiveness and efficacy. Chiropractic's ability to benefit multiple vital health parameters plus help offset the main cost drivers (drugs, surgery, and hospital-based rehabilitation) are key to raising awareness in both public and professional spheres. This compendium helps demonstrate that, when we encourage conservative care of health concerns, utilizing chiropractic's unique interventions, it will provide many clinical and economically proactive benefits.
