What is Evidence-Based Care?

A growing revolution in health care is a shift away from approaches that are not validated by research.  Instead, scientists are urging health-care professionals to practice “evidence-based care,” or EBC.  This approach involves using care plans that are backed by scientific research.

Dr. Smith has always been an advocate of EBC.  To this end, our chiropractic office remains up-to-date with research, and takes part in yearly continuing education programs.

By creating optimal nerve system flow, researchers speculate chiropractic adjustments may influence structures in the body far away from the spine, such as organs.  In this way, chiropractic care may prevent a wide array of conditions.  The following is a condensed list of conditions that scientific studies over the past two decades indicate may benefit from chiropractic care:

  • Infertility
  • High blood pressure
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Chest pain
  • Lung problems
  • Colic
  • Cognitive impairments
  • Hearing problems
  • Restless Legs Syndrome
  • Asthma
