Evidence-Informed Chiropractic Care

Clinical practice guidelines consist of recommendations for patient care based on the best available scientific and expert evidence, in consideration of patient benefits and harms.  Providing evidence-informed care to my patients takes into account three (3) important aspects of patient care:

  1. Scientific evidence
  2. My experience
  3. Your values

To assist you with understanding the evidence and providing you with resources for self-management of your condition, the Canadian Chiropractic Guideline Initiative (CCGI) has prepared a series of info-graphics and videos for your ongoing needs.
