Harvard Health References Flawed AHA Position Paper

By Editorial Staff

In its special health report, "Stroke: Diagnosing, Treating, and Recovering From a 'Brain Attack,'" Harvard Health Publications includes information from the American Heart Association's 2014 position statement on cervical manipulation and cervical dissection – a statement the American Chiropractic Association emphasized in a letter to Harvard Health mixes "scientific facts with half-truths."

Read the ACA letter to Harvard Health in its entirety by clicking here. Drs. Christine Goertz and Dana Lawrence also critiqued the AHA report in "CMT & Stroke Risk: Myth vs. Fact" (Nov. 1, 2014 DC), available in our online archives.
