Spine-health.com is an award winning website dedicated to publishing trusted patient education written and reviewed by physicians. The website is ranked among the top 50 health websites in the world.  Spine-health and World Spine Care are aligned in their goals of helping patients find pain relief and cope with debilitating back conditions. 

An enormous need

Musculoskeletal conditions are the leading cause of long term disability worldwide.(1)  Spinal disorders represent the vast majority of these conditions in the developing world. Patients suffer with enormous pain, often with only a naproxen to help ease their suffering. Due to the immense pain and dysfunction, many patients become entirely disabled.

World Spine Care's response

In 2008 an international leader in the assessment and treatment of spinal disorders, Dr. Scott Haldeman, decided to help.  Dr. Haldeman already actively supports worldwide access to quality patient education by serving on the board of Spine-health.com.

Dr. Haldeman garnered the initial support of foundations and corporations, and in 2010, World Spine Care was officially launched with the vision to bring effective spinal care to communities in need worldwide. 

The non-profit organization consists of doctors, surgeons, chiropractors, physiotherapists, and others to fill the profound gap in the developing world between the need and the availability of care.

To support these life changing endeavors and to learn more about the program, please see the World Spine Care website: http://worldspinecare.com/.

Chiropractic & Manual Therapies is an open access, peer-reviewed online journal that aims to provide doctors of chiropractic with clinically relevant, evidence-based information. The journal is published by BioMed Central, the publisher of 220 science, technology and medicine open access, online, peer-reviewed journals.

Chiropractic & Manual Therapies is a continuation of the title Chiropractic & Osteopathy (C&O). C&O was formerly known as Australasian Chiropractic & Osteopathy (AC0), previously published by the Chiropractic & Osteopathic College of Australasia (COCA). Free text versions of ACO articles are available at http://www.coca.com.au/index.php?ID=115.

Chiropractic & Manual Therapies serves as a critical resource in chiropractic, and as an open access publication, is more readily available to practitioners, researchers and clinicians worldwide.

Open access

All articles published by Chiropractic & Manual Therapies are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication, without subscription charges or registration barriers.

Authors of articles published in Chiropractic & Manual Therapies are the copyright holders of their articles and have granted to any third party, in advance and in perpetuity, the right to use, reproduce or disseminate the article, according to the BioMed Central copyright and license agreement.

Article-processing charges

In open access publishing the publisher charges the authors for publication only after they have passed through a rigorous peer-review process. The publication costs for Chiropractic & Manual Therapies are covered by Chiropractic & Osteopathic College of Australasia (COCA) and the European Academy of Chiropractic (EAC), so authors do not need to pay an article-processing charge.

Indexing services

Following publication in Chiropractic & Manual Therapies, the full-text of each article is deposited immediately and permanently archived in PubMed Central, the US National Library of Medicine's full-text repository of life science literature. Chiropractic & Manual Therapies is included in PubMed and all major bibliographic databases.

Publication and peer review process





Chiropractic & Manual Therapies publishes the following types of papers:

Research: reports of data from original research.

Reviews: comprehensive, authoritative, descriptions of any subject within the scope of the journal. These articles are usually written by opinion leaders that have been invited by the Editorial Board.

Case reports: reports of clinical cases that can be educational, describe a diagnostic or therapeutic dilemma, suggest an association, or present an important adverse reaction. It is important to note that case reports highlighting preventive or therapeutic intervention will, as a rule, not be published, because establishing the clinical merits of either requires stronger evidence.

Commentaries: short, focused and opinionated articles on any subject within the scope of the journal. These articles are usually related to a contemporary issue, such as recent research findings, and are often written by opinion leaders.

Database articles: describe a new database or a substantial improvement of an existing database.

Debate articles: present an argument that is not essentially based on practical research. Debate articles can report on all aspects of the subject including sociological and ethical aspects.

Hypotheses: short articles presenting an untested original hypothesis backed solely by previously published results rather than any new evidence.

Methodology articles: present a new experimental method, test or procedure. The method described may either be completely new, or may offer a better version of an existing method.

Short reports: brief reports of data from original research.

Study protocols: describe proposed or ongoing research, providing a detailed account of the hypothesis, rationale, and methodology of the study.

Systematic reviews: should be prepared in accordance with the PRISMA guidelines for systematic reviews. An additional file, linked from the Methods section, should reproduce all details concerning the search strategy. For an example of how a search strategy should be presented, see the Cochrane Reviewers' Handbook.

The Editors of Chiropractic & Manual Therapies have produced some guidelines on good scientific writing to assist authors when preparing a manuscript for submission to the journal.

Peer-review policies

Peer review in Chiropractic & Manual Therapies is designed to ensure that published articles are scientifically sound. The submitted manuscripts are sent to two external experts for evaluation of scientific significance and validity.

Peer reviewers have three possible options for each manuscript: accept, accept with revision, and reject. Peer reviewers are asked to justify their decision.

Based on the critiques of the reviewers, the authors may choose to revise their manuscript and resubmit it for an additional review. Chiropractic w& Manual Therapies allows authors a maximum of two revisions of a manuscript.

Authors are able to check the progress of their manuscript through the submission system at any time by logging into the journal’s web site.

We encourage the readers of The American Chiropractor to visit our web site: WWW.chiromt.com One can sign up to receive free email alerts when new papers are published by the journal.
