CMAJ. 1995 Feb; 152(3): 402-4.
"Scientific" chiropractors hope to improve status of chiropractic within scientific community.
A new group has been formed to represent chiropractors and other health care professionals who limit their use of spinal manipulation to the treatment of back problems, and who oppose claims that chiropractic can treat problems such as asthma and enuresis. However, some Canadian chiropractors respond that most claims that chiropractic can cure disease originate in the US, and that Canadian chiropractors are conservative in their claims. Some Canadian pediatricians are concerned that chiropractors are attempting to treat more children.
