Content identified by the HONcode team

The content below is a sample of the content identified at a specific date by the HONcode team that justifies the respect of the eight ethical principles.

The contents are written by me, unless it is clear from the context that they are written by someone else. Some contents, such as abstracts of medical papers, are copied from elsewhere on the Web. Over 2,000 people have posted their stories, and hundreds of sufferers, doctors, manual therapists of various kinds and other medical practitioners have contributed suggestions or material to the website. Private emails are quoted only with the permission of the sender, who can remain anonymous if they wish. If anyone wishes to have their contribution removed, I will remove it.
I am not a doctor, and make no claim to medical expertise. The contents are as accurate as I can make them, though I can give no guarantees. If you see any errors or omissions, please let me know, and I will put them right.
