Objective: The objective of this study was to determine the attitudes of clinical faculty during the 2009-2010 academic year at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College towards the treatment of various nonmusculoskeletal disorders. Methods: A confidential survey was distributed to the clinical faculty via email. It consisted of several questions polling the demographic of the respondent such as years in clinical practice, and a list of 29 nonmusculoskeletal conditions. Clinicians were asked toindicate their opinions on each condition on rating scale ranging from strongly agree to strongly disagree. Results: Twenty of 22 clinicians responded. The conditions garnering the greatest positive ratings include: asthma, constipation, chronic pelvic pain, dysmenorrhea, infantile colic, and vertigo. The options regarding vertigo and asthma, while demonstrating an overall positive attitude towards the benefits of chiropractic care, were stratified amongst clinicians with varying years in clinical practice.Conclusion: This study suggests clinicians at this college are moderately open towards the chiropractictreatment of some non-musculoskeletal disorders.
