The science and evidence base for chiropractic

This website aims to provide information about the scientific and evidence base for chiropractic, enabling informed decisions to be made about whether chiropractic is right for you.

There is a definite need for such information in an easily accessible format. While there are many websites that provide good information on chiropractic, they frequently cover many other forms of alternative therapies as well, making the information less easy to find.

There are a plethora of chiropractic clinic websites that the general public might come across, but they are not always as impartial as they could be.

Discover Chiropractic aims to redress that balance.

Edzard Ernst, the world’s first Professor of Complementary Medicine, agrees:

I think it is high time that the public learns the truth about chiropractic. Independent, impartial information was previously very hard to come by and the chiropractic profession has been shown over and over again to make unsubstantiated claims. This has the potential to cause serious harm and it is important that this stops.
