New Research Journal in Chiropractic Announced


The Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health Chiropractic (JPMFH) has been launched to provide a venue and support for the increasing amount of chiropractic research being produced.

Atlanta, GA, March 09, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Chiropractic is gaining greater acceptance on a daily basis in part because of the increasing amount of research demonstrating its effectiveness and safety. One particularly rich area involves the care of children, expectant mothers and family health and wellness. In order to help facilitate the dissemination of this research, the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health – Chiropractic (JPMFH) was launched.

According to Matthew McCoy DC, MPH, the Editor of the journal, “More and more families are choosing chiropractic for a good portion of their health care needs because of its effectiveness and safety. People want to avoid costly and unnecessary drugs and aggressive interventions when they can, so they are seeking alternatives like chiropractic.”

Recent research supported by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) has shown that not only is chiropractic extremely safe for children but that it is also very effective. In the study, which involved over 10,000 pediatric visits to chiropractors, 66% reported improvements in their presenting complaints and another 8% reported improvements unrelated to their presenting complaints.

“For many years the research side of chiropractic lagged behind the clinical side due to a lack of funding, prejudice and interference from the medical-pharmaceutical industrial complex” stated McCoy. “Some within the profession have really stepped up to the plate to explore whether some of the fundamental beliefs about chiropractic and health outcomes are actually true and chiropractic pediatrics is one such topic area that is bearing fruit.”

With more research being produced the need arises to support the infrastructure that comes along with it and one of those needs involves publication of research findings. The Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health – Chiropractic is expected to help provide a venue for this very important research.
