Maintenance Care (MC) is known by all chiropractors, yet not well defined 10 . An early RCT on this topic failed to show its usefulness 4 . In order to capture the essence of MC before doing any more RCT’s, the Nordic Maintenance Programme was started by Charlotte Leboeuf-Yde, Lise Hestbaek and  ben Axén. The programme aimed to describe MC 1,3 through investigating the indications 2,5,7,8,9 , prevalence 6,9 , content 3, 7 and efficacy in a number of studies with different research questions and methods. The final work/articles, in which the effect of MC is studied, will be based on various studies and new knowledge.
