Seminar: The evidence for chiropractic treatment

16 June 2011

Dr Tuchin will discuss recent research which finds strong support for chiropractic treatment for a number of common and costly conditions that affect society. For example, low back pain, neck pain, headache and migraine have had significant studies supporting chiropractic treatment.

However, some controversy still exists on whether the benefits of chiropractic outweigh the risks. This presentation will provide details on the case for and against chiropractic treatment.
