Research Library

The future credibility, professional growth, and individual prosperity of the chiropractic profession will be dependant upon research evidence, spine care pathways, and continued collective professional credibility.
 
We need to reinforce and empower our profession with research and prove (as best we can) the contributions we make as chiropractors to the improvement of public health!
 
There is a growing body of evidence showing that chiropractic is safe, effective and efficient. This evidence can be used to influence insurance companies. This requires chiropractors to be as up-to-date as possible on the latest research and scientific literature to effectively counter insurance companies’ adverse rulings.
 
The MAC has numerous studies on hand that can help with this effort. Contact Tim at the MAC office at [email protected] or (517) 367-2225.
