Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Since its inception, it has been claimed that chiropractic has the ability to alleviate visceral symptomatology by manual spinal manipulation\ however, only isolated patient surveys and case reports offer any support for the assertion that treatment might have any therapeutic effect on functional disorders of the upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract.2-5 To determine whether there was a basis for these claims, we conducted a prospective cohort study with a convenience sample of 83 consecutive patients (29 males, 54 females; average age 42.3) with symptoms of dyspepsia for a minimum of 2 years.
