In this article, Brown investigates the secular and religious ties to chiropractic medicine. Many hospitals will refer you to a doctor that specializes in alternative medicine such as yoga, t’ai chi, acupuncture, mindfulness meditation, biofeedback, chiropractic, homeopathy, aromatherapy, Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, and Healing Touch. However, the overlap and sometimes confusion begins with the same practices are often connected to the practices of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Daoism, and Western religiousness. Brown discusses how we easily see these practices as medicine because they are practices within hospitals even though they are spiritual practices. Brown emphasizes that in the hospital, it is carefully marketed so that the two concepts seem to be interconnected, however they are not. This article is based on an investigation for identifying the reasons and ties to alternative medicine. The data, and sources within the research proves that there is enough support and valuable information in relation to the Chinese culture. Not only does it tell us more about the Chinese culture, but other cultures in relation to alternative.

Dagenais, Brady, Haldeman, and Manga come together to conduct a review for health care costs of those that use chiropractic care. These studies remained within the U.S.,and the costs were studied by those with health care plans, those receiving workers compensation, and the clinical outcomes. Although there were several outcomes, health care costs ultimately were proven to be lower for those receiving chiropractic care due to back pain.
