HHS Draft Report: Chiropractic Included in Recommendations for Pain Relief

A new report in draft format currently from the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services is published and favorable to chiropractic. The US Department of HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health has led to the creation of the Pain Management Best Practices Inter-Agency Task Force (Task Force) that reports in 2019 that “complementary and integrative health approaches to pain include acupuncture, hands-on manipulative techniques (e.g., osteopathic or chiropractic manipulation) when used alone or in combination with conventional therapies, such as medications, behavioral therapies, and interventional treatments are recommended." Read the whole report. It's quite exciting! Section 2.6 opens the door for chiropractic, non-drug, non-surgical care of patients in pain. It asks for more research documentation of clinical outcomes. Cox Technic has been collecting research - biomechanical and clinical - for years, preparing for this call. Section 2.6 points out that there are "health approaches that remain unknown to the broader medical community and that are often overlooked in the management of pain." Cox Technic has offered interdisciplinary seminars to help share what we offer and understand what medicine offers.
