The objective of this research was to identify the most common combination of methods used by chiropractors in Victoria to identify manipulable lesions or subluxations. A postal survey of chiropractors in Victoria achieved an 85% response rate and revealed that eight methods are commonly used in combination to detect subluxation. They are: visual posture analysis, pain description of the patient, plain static erect x-rays, leg length discrepancy, neurological tests, motion palpation, static palpation, orthopaedic tests. These methods have also been found to be used commonly and regarded as reliable.
