The scientific review published in 2010 titled Effectiveness of Manual Therapies:
The UK Evidence Report summarized the scientifi c evidence on the eff ectiveness of joint manipulation and mobilization for musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal conditions. The authors reported that, according to current standards of scientific evidence, spinal manipulation/mobilization is effective in adults for acute, subacute, and chronic low back pain, migraine and cervicogenic headaches, cervicogenic dizziness, acute/subacute neck pain, and several extremity joint conditions. These researchers also supported the safety and appropriateness of spinal manipulation/mobilization for all of the conditions noted (Bronfort et al., 2010). In an accompanying commentary, Scott Haldeman, D.C., M.D., Ph.D., an internationally-recognized spine care specialist and researcher, concluded that the scientifi c community now recognizes that manipulation is of value for the vast majority of patients who seek chiropractic care (Haldeman & Underwood, 2010).
