Evidence Based Practice
Evidence based practice is the gold-standard of all healthcare. If your chiropractor is utilising evidence-based practice they are ensuring you get the very best treatment possible.
What is evidence-based practice?
The term evidence-based practice (EBP) means that your chiropractor has based their decision to apply a treatment on three extremely important factors
- The best available evidence (research)
- Their clinical expertise
- Patient (your) preferences
When a chiropractor uses evidence-based practice to make decisions, they apply a logical framework (funnel) that ensures what you are getting is the best possible treatment for your condition. It removes outdated chiropractic practices from the clinical picture and prompts the practitioner to justify why they are delivering a treatment and if there clear benefit for doing so.
We explore these different components of evidence-based practice for those who would like to read further on this subject.
