ONTARIO MINISTRY OF HEALTH REPORT ON CHIROPRACTIC CARE, 1993
The Canadian government commissioned a world-renowned medical economist to see if chiropractic could benefit their country. His name is Pran Manga and his recommendation is clear:
" . . . for the management of low-back pain, chiropractic care is the most effective treatment, and it should be fully integrated into the government's health care system."
"The overwhelming body of evidence" shows that chiropractic management of low-back pain is more cost-effective than medical management, and that "many medical therapies are of questionable validity or are clearly inadequate."
