This guidance focuses primarily on new evidence submitted to the ASA and CAP in relation to the multi modal therapies commonly used by chiropractors to treat sciatica, sports injuries and whiplash and explores which types of claim are likely to be acceptable, as well as which types of claim are likely to be a problem. It also goes into detail in relation to claims about the treatment of babies, children and pregnant women. As regulated health professionals, chiropractors may refer to treating specific population groups. However, due to the lack of appropriately robust evidence being provided to the ASA and CAP, the guidance makes clear that claims which go beyond this and refer to conditions or symptoms specific to those patient groups are likely to be problem.
