1979: New Zealand Commission
The New Zealand government commissioned and extensive 20-month study on chiropractic care. Chiropractors, medical doctors and researchers from all over the world contributed to the project.
The 3,000 page report concluded: "We are satisfied that chiropractic treatment…is remarkably safe. Tens of thousands of patients have gone through chiropractors" hands…(and) they have apparently suffered no ill effects…We have no doubt that chiropractor's training adequately equips them to carry out their techniques without harm to he patient."

1988: Florida Worker's Compensation Report
This report of health care costs for on-the-job injuries in Florida found that chiropractic care was almost half the cost of medical treatment. Researchers concluded that chiropractic care is a "cost-effective approach to the management of work-related injuries." (2)
Similar studies performed in Oregon and California found that patients who received chiropractic care for their back injury returned to work twice as fast as those who received medical care. (3)
1990: British Medical Research Council
This 20-year government study was conducted by T.W. Meade, M.D., at the request of the British Medical Research Council. It is considered the single-most important original research which scientifically demonstrates that chiropractic really works. Its published findings revealed that chiropractic care was twice as effective as medical care for the long-term relief from back pain. (4)
1991: The RAND Study
An exhaustive study of chiropractic was conducted by neurologists, medical orthopedists and chiropractors on behalf of the RAND Corporation, and internationally recognized non-profit research organization. They found spinal manipulation (as used by chiropractors) to be an effective and appropriate treatment for lo-back disorders.
Researchers discovered that patients treated by manipulation improved significantly faster as compared to those treated by medical care or having no treatment at all.
1993: Stano Study
This study compared health care costs of patients who received chiropractic care for neuromusculoskeletal problems with those treated solely by medical and osteopathic physicians.
After reviewing nearly 2,000,000 chiropractic patient records, researcher Miron Stano, Ph.D., of Oakland University, concluded that "patients that receive chiropractic care, either solely or in conjunction with medical care, experienced significantly lower health care costs".(6)
1993: Manga Report
The Ontario Government's Medical Health Care Program Commissioned a chiropractic study, headed by Pran Manga, Ph.D. After an in-depth analysis, the Manga Report concluded that there was an "overwhelming body of evidence" that chiropractic management, within its realm, "is greatly superior to medical management in terms of scientific validity, safety, cost effectiveness and patient satisfaction". (7)
1994: U.S. Government's Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR)
In 1994, the U.S. government's Agency for Health Care Policy and Research Commissioned a five-year study to assess various methods of treating low-back pain. The panel of researchers included medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists and nurses.
After reviewing nearly 4,000 scientific studies, the 23-member panel of experts set forth national guidelines to establish safe, effective and cost-containing approaches to managing acute low-back pain.
The report clearly discouraged the use of injections, bed rest and surgery. (8) The researches conclude, "Spinal manipulation is effective in reducing pain and speeding recovery."
1998: U.S. Government's Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR)
In June 1998, a second breakthrough study was funded by the U.S. government's Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR).
This collaboration among scholars, researchers, medical doctors and chiropractors resulted in 100-page report highlighting the valuable role of chiropractic care.
The report states, "It has taken 100 years of self-directed, bootstrap efforts utilizing internal funds to bring chiropractic in the mainstream of healthcare…today the scope of chiropractic research now parallels that of medical research."(9)
