Chiropractic Research

This section offers a comprehensive collection of research studies, chiropractic case studies and other published papers which show the efficacy of chiropractic care for children and pregnant women. Maintained and funded by Members of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, this site offers the largest compilation of research on chiropractic care for children.

The ICPA's Research Director, Dr. Joel Alcantara, is the most published author in the profession. To view our annual accomplishments, visit our ICPA Research page.

It is important to realize that chiropractic is not the treatment of any medical condition. Neither does chiropractic care replace medical diagnosis or treatment. Chiropractic is not the practice of medicine.

The purpose of chiropractic is to locate and reduce stress and interference to the nervous system, allowing the person to experience greater function and an overall improved quality of life.
