Call for Nominations: Pediatric Chiropractor of the Year!

The ACA Pediatrics Council Award Committee is now accepting nominations for the Pediatric Chiropractor of the Year Award. Nomination forms (linked below) are to be returned to the Council no later than March 19. Nominees should be someone you feel has made a significant contribution to the field of pediatrics in leadership, research, and/or service to the profession. Nominees do not need to be Council members, however, Council membership will be a factor in deliberations to choose a winner. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Natalie Muth.

As a reminder, the inaugural award recipient will be announced at the ACA Pediatrics Council 11th Anniversary Symposium in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina May 3-4, 2019.

Manual Therapy for Pediatrics! Favorable outcomes are likely & probable for most of the conditions pediatric chiropractors see in our offices every day (low back pain, Otitis Media, TMJD, Colic, etc). However...

The lack of high quality evidence contributes to the inconclusive/favorable and inconclusive/unfavorable results for most conditions. This review makes it clear that we need to support high quality research on these conditions in order to improve the reporting. Our ACA Pediatrics Council's research committee is working to facilitate more participation in research studies.
