Chiropractic is proven to have a positive effect on:

  • Back pain
  • Leg pain/sciatica
  • Neck pain
  • Migraine headaches
  • Cervicogenic pain (pain associated with neck conditions or injuries)
  • Cervicogenic dizziness
  • Shoulder problems
  • 'Tennis elbow'
  • Hip problems
  • Knee problems
  • Plantar fasciitis

Further evidence:

  • Favourable evidence was also found for a number of other conditions, but was not fully conclusive due to various factors, such as studies not being large enough, amongst others.
  • The above information was taken from 'Bronfort G et al. Effectiveness of manual therapies: the UK evidence report Chiropractic and Osteopathy 2010,18:3'.
  • The National Institute for health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines May 2009 give further information on the NHS recommendations.
