Is High-Utilization Chiropractic Treatment Efficacious in Whiplash?

Arch Intern Med. 2006;166(11):1237-1238. doi:10.1001/archinte.166.11.1237

In a recent article by Côté et al,1 the authors appeared at first blush to demonstrate that chiropractic management of whiplash injuries might delay recovery. Superficially, it suggests that patients who see general practitioners in “low-utilization” settings recover from their injuries more quickly compared with those who see general practitioners in “high-utilization” settings and that patients who see chiropractors and a medical practitioner have slower recoveries. Those who see only chiropractors in the “high-utilization” setting have the slowest recovery.
