It has long been a subject of hot debate between the medical profession and Chiropractors about the efficacy of longer term patient management programs. In a medico-socioeconomic model it has long been thought by the majority of the medical profession researchers that continual care for musculo-skeletal problems is not effective and that ongoing care is based purely on an economic basis for the benefit of the Chiropractor and not the patient.
This has on occasion put the professions at loggerheads when looking at care. It is important when considering this to question what is health? See previous post on this subject.
