Palmer's Vice Chancellor for Research and Health Policy Christine Goertz, D.C., Ph.D., took
the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association to task after they issued a
misleading statement on stroke risk from neck manipulation. In her homecoming presentation
the day after the statement's release, Dr. Goertz asserted the statement's implication of
a causal relationship between chiropractic manipulative therapy and stroke isn't substantiated
by the best research available.
85% would pick health care again; 78% would pick chiropractic again; 77% would pick Palmer again; 91% consider themselves "successful"; 92% work fewer than 50 hours per week.

debut in 1997 and is currently a required text at most chiropractic colleges.
