Spinal Disc Injuries

Most patients (85.7%)  in this study, including subacute / chronic patients with symptomatic, and through MRI confirmed herniated disc (cervical spine) who received chiropractic treatment reported a significant improvement with no negative side effects.

A large percentage of patients with acute  and especially chronic herniated discs (lumbar spine) treated with chiropractic care reported clinically relevant improvements. After 3 months, 94.5% of the acute patients did better or significantly better. 81.8% of the chronic patients spoke of improvement after 3 months. This value increased to 89.2% after 12 months. 

Headache / Migraine

The results show that in patients with cervicogenic headache, who received an adjustment of the cervical and thoracic spine, the intensity of the headache, the limitation, the frequency, the duration, and medication usage significantly decreased. In addition, the effects persisted after a follow-up period of 3 months.

Dizziness / Vertigo

Musculoskeletal complaints occurred in 93% of the patients. Mainly neck and shoulder girdle pain as well as tension headaches occurred in 93% of patients with cervical vertigo.  The average treatment period was 41 days. At the end of treatment, 60% of the patients reported a remission, 20% reported a consistent improvement in dizziness. Remission of musculoskeletal symptoms was observed in 26.7% of patients and improvement in 60% of patients.

Chronic, nontraumatic, cervical, and shoulder girdle dysfunction was an important causative and persistent factor of cervical dizziness in the studied population, and consistent improvement was observed using a conservative treatment protocol.

Lower  Back pain

The results of this study show that chiropractic care in connection with standard medical care has a significant advantage for the reduction of pain and the improvement of physical function compared to standard medical care on its own for men and women between 18 and 35 years of age with acute lower back pain.

This controlled study demonstrated the clear superiority of chiropractic care over placebo and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. 

Neck pain

Chiropractic care was used for participants with acute and subacute neck pain and was more effective than medication in the short and long term.  After 12 weeks, a significant proportion showed a pain reduction of at least 50%.


Data were obtained from 28,807 treatment consultations and 50,276 adjustments to the cervical spine. There have been no reports of serious adverse treatment reactions.
