An International Survey of Pain in Adolescents

Chiro.Org Blog: Adolescence marks the transition from childhood to adult life. Pain during adolescence is an important predictor of future pain.

The Evidence House: How to Build an Inclusive Base for Complementary Medicine

Chiro.Org Blog: We all want good evidence available when making medical decisions. Evidence, however, comes in a variety of forms and purposes, and what may be good for one purpose may not be good for another. The term “evidence-based medicine” (EBM) has become almost a cliché in recent years, being used as a synonym for “good” or “scientific,” both to support and refute the value of complementary medicine practices.
