  • During the study period, only small proportions in either group had initiated use of glucosamine (13% versus 8%), chiropractic services (5% versus 4%), acupuncture (3%, both), yoga (6% versus 4%), or magnets (6%, both) [6].
  • Electromagnetic interference and ICD discharge related to chiropractic treatment [7].
  • The majority of respondents believed that acupuncture, chiropractic and osteopathy were effective and should be funded by the NHS [8].
