Acute care guidelines have established the benefits of chiropractic management which include reduced costs and earlier return to work.

A recent article by Farabaugh, Dehen, and Hawk (2010) sought....."to develop a broad based multidisciplinary consensus of medical and chiropractic clinical experts representing mainstream medical and chiropractic practice to produce a document designated to provide standardized parameters of care and documentation" (p.484) The authors state, "There is increasing evidence in the scientific literature supporting the long tradition of patients seeking chiropractic care when dealing with chronic spinal pain" (Farabaugh et al., 2010, p. 491). They further state, "The consensus process utilizing a multidisciplinary panel was successful in developing a set of case management recommendations...This document provides a case management compass for an evidence-based and reasonable approach to the chiropractic management of chronic spine pain patients who require ongoing care" (Farabaugh) et al., 2010, p. 491).
