Have You Used Our Search Tools Lately?

The Chiro.Org Blog

Most of our search tools are now directory-specific, to make it that much easier to find what you want. Our website is so much more than just a Blog. We have been compiling materials into various sections since 1995, and no other chiropractic website has such a breadth and depth of material, conveniently arranged into topic pages, like the Low Back Pain Page, or the Chronic Neck Pain Page. Our LINKS Section is chocked full of many other pages of equal value. Look at the left-hand side of this page, and scroll down to RESOURCES to browse our Sections.

The Sectional Search Tools are very word specific, and can be adjusted to look for specific words, word strings, or even capitalizations. Please NOTE that each of the Sectional Search Tools only searches the directory they are named for. The Google tool searches all sections at once.

Here’s an example of how the LINKS Search Tool works. The LINKS Section contains almost half of of our collected materials. These steps (see the tables below) explain how to use each of the components of the Sectional Search Tool.

The “How-to Search” Section
A search with the phrase “Forward Head Posture”
(capitalized) can yield widely differing results.
The Case:   Sensitive or Insensitive   drop-down box
Case Sensitive will find the words with capitalization of the 3 separate words:     Forward,   Head or Posture
Case Insensitive will find all of the words:     forward,   Forward,   head,   Head,   posture or Posture

NOTE: “Insensitive” usually yields a much larger field of results. That’s why I always use the Case Sensitive mode.

The Construct:   drop-down box

Any Search Term

will find all the articles with EITHER of the 3 terms:   Forward,   Head or Posture

“Insensitive” yielded 94 articles
“Sensitive” yielded 29 articles


All Search Term

will find the articles with ALL 3 of the search terms:   Forward,   Head or Posture

“Insensitive” yielded 14 articles
“Sensitive” yielded 4 articles


As a Phrase

will only find articles with the phrase:   “Forward Head Posture”

“Insensitive” yielded 8 articles
“Sensitive” yielded 4 articles

In the “Hits” drop-down box, I usually use the “All Hits” selection,
to avoid having to view multiple pages in the search review.

Try it, you’ll like it!

You can find it all with our Section

About the Author:

I was introduced to Chiro.Org in early 1996, where my friend Joe Garolis helped me learn HTML, the "mark-up language" for websites. We have been fortunate that journals like JMPT have given us permission to reproduce some early important articles in Full-Text format. Maintaining the Org website has been, and remains, my favorite hobby.

    And a big, big thank you to Dr. Frank Painter, who has spent innumerable hours accumulating and cataloging these materials. WTG!
