Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Reviewing chiropractic for fibromyalgia

    Prof. Ernst reviewed the evidence.

    First, the details.

    • 3 studies were worth reviewing.

    And, the results.

    • The studies were poorly designed.
    • They generated no evidence to suggest that chiropractic care is effective for fibromyalgia.

    The bottom line?
    The author concluded, “There is insufficient evidence to conclude that chiropractic is an effective treatment for fibromyalgia.”

    The National Center for CAM (NCCAM) also reviewed the evidence and also concluded there is insufficient evidence for chiropractic management of fibromyalgia.
