An earlier example was dealt with here.
His professional career has spanned nearly 30 years. In addition to treating patients, he has testified at about trials, performed more than 10, chiropractic case evaluations, and served as a consultant to several law enforcement agencies.
His new book is one of the very few that provides an inside criticism of chiropractic. It is well worth reading, in my view. Have you ever consulted a chiropractor?
Are you thinking about seeing one? Do you care whether your tax and health-care dollars are spent on worthless treatment? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, there are certain things you should know. Chiropractic theory and practice are not based on the body of knowledge related to health, disease, and health care that has been widely accepted by the scientific community.
The extent of this belief varies from chiropractor to chiropractor. Some believe that subluxations are the primary cause of ill health; others consider them an underlying cause. Only a small percentage including me reject these notions and align their beliefs and practices with those of the science-based medical community.
The ramifications and consequences of subluxation theory will be discussed in detail throughout this book. Many chiropractors promise too much. The most common forms of treatment administered by chiropractors are spinal manipulation and passive physiotherapy measures such as heat, ultrasound, massage, and electrical muscle stimulation.
These modalities can be useful in managing certain problems of muscles and bones, but they have little, if any, use against the vast majority of diseases.
The illustrations below reflect these beliefs. Some charts of this type have listed more than diseases and conditions, including allergies, appendicitis, anemia, crossed eyes, deafness, gallbladder problems, hernias, and pneumonia.
A survey found that exaggeration is common among chiropractic Web sites. The researchers looked at the Web sites of chiropractors and 9 chiropractic associations in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Our education is vastly inferior to that of medical doctors. I rarely encountered sick patients in my school clinic. Most had nothing really wrong with them. In order to graduate, chiropractic college students are required to treat a minimum number of people. Real medical education involves contact with thousands of patients with a wide variety of problems, including many severe enough to require hospitalization.
Most chiropractic students see patients during two clinical years in chiropractic college. Medical students also average two clinical years, but they see many more patients and nearly all medical doctors have an additional three to five years of specialty training before they enter practice.
Inchiropractic students were required to evaluate and manage only 15 patients in order to graduate. However, only 10 of the 35 must be live patients eight of whom are not students or their family members!
Stephen Barrett reported a fascinating example of this which occurred when he visited a chiropractor for research purposes. When Barrett mentioned that he was recovering from an attack of vertigo dizzinessthe chiropractor quickly rattled off a textbook-like list of all the possible causes.
But instead of obtaining a proper history and conducting tests to pinpoint a diagnosis, he x-rayed Dr. The medical diagnosis, which had been appropriately made elsewhere, was a viral infection that cleared up spontaneously in about ten days.
Our legitimate scope is actually very narrow. Appropriate chiropractic treatment is relevant only to a narrow range of ailments, nearly all related to musculoskeletal problems. But some chiropractors assert that they can influence the course of nearly everything.
Some even offer adjustments to farm animals and family pets. Very little of what chiropractors do has been studied. Chiropractic apologists try to sound scientific to counter their detractors, but very little research actually supports what chiropractors do. During my work as an independent examiner, I have encountered many patients whose chiropractor missed readily apparent diagnoses and rendered inappropriate treatment for long periods of time.
Chiropractors lack the depth of training available to medical doctors. For that reason, except for minor injuries, it is usually better to seek medical diagnosis first. We offer lots of unnecessary services.
Greed is not the only factor involved in overtreatment.Showing the words “we believe in better farming” next to a picture of an adorable calf trapped inside of a cage is a total joke — one that I don’t think many people will fall for.
