Quackery, alive and well ......

"Dr. Richard Kelly, a chiropractor in Bridgehampton, began a program designed to help children with developmental disorders along the autism spectrum. "

First of all, chiropractors are NOT trained in disorders such as autism, ADHD, ADD etc etc. They are NOT. They get NO actual clinical experience with these disorders. Period. They are claiming to be experts in things which they are NOT.
They should have their licenses revoked and they should be fully investigated for practicing outside their scope of expertise.

Second, chiropractors who make these preposterous claims have NO evidence or research to support their bizarre claims. Period.

Outrageous behavior displayed by chiropractors seeking to make money off desperate and innocent parents and children.

Sure Wisdom lets take your advice and prevent people who will possibly from this treatment.

You don't have a history on this chiropractor therefore you cannot claim he has no clinical experience outside of his clinical rounds he had in school.

You cannot deny the countless results chiropractic care is benefiting the public. Take your mindless rants and move on. Your anti chiropractic propaganda is getting old.

I'm guessing this pretend "callahan" is a chiropractor in disguise.

Who else would support the bizarre notion that chiropractors can treat autism?

By the way, aerial, did you move or did your server address change? Why pretend to be someone you are not? You claimed to be a licensed chiropractor. certainly you could defend chiropractic without pretending to be someone else? No?

I'm guessing you had to move back to your momma's house. I know things are bad in chiropractic. poor fella. I told you a long time ago to get out of chiropractic. you should have listened.

chiropractor's is alternative medicine, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the hypothesis that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system. Unsubstantiated claims about the effectiveness of chiropractic have continued to be made by individual chiropractors and chiropractic associations. The core concept of chiropractic, vertebral subluxation, is not based on sound science. A critical evaluation found that spinal manipulation is not effective for any medical condition, with the possible exception of treatment for back pain, and suggested that many guidelines recommend chiropractic care for low back pain because no therapy has been shown to make a real difference.
Now before I am attacked, I have severe Scoliosis, discovered at about age 10 and to avoid a steel rod in my back, I opted for a brace and chiropractor, for years. I can tell you that if you get an inexperienced chiropractor, they can severely injure you and your spine.
There is no evidence that autism is a nervous disorder. Chiropractors generally have no experience in cortical plasticity, and when claims are made
"It is designed for children with Obsessive-compulsive disorder, learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and autism. At the end of three months, Kelly said there is a 50 to 60 percent improvement in cognitive evaluations." You know it's a warning sign, plus 3 months of service obviously generates this doctors income.
I would never take my child to a chiropractor unless he had spinal issues.

It'd be cheaper to get a four-year old to walk on your back. And, just as ineffective.

I'm guessing "fbomber" is a chiropractor. Who else would make such preposterous claims? And then imply that "chiropractic can cure vaccine injuries"?

The chiropractic diaper needs to be emptied. Enough from these clowns.

Obviously "wisdom" was a poor choice of name. Your guesses are wrong. I said nothing about curing autism. Back to your cave.

Yeah, Winnipeg Canada plays around on here for both fun, and to fight the stupidity epidemic. I've tried to cure friend, but she's a stubborn-chronic case.

In what cave did "fbomb" learn that autism and ADHD are caused by vaccines?

Can someone tell me exactly how many millions of lives have been saved by vaccinations?

Has anyone spent any time in hospitals caring for and treating life threatening childhood diseases?

Didn't you know vaccines cause every thing? It's the number one contributor for the blame-game. If you don't know why it happened, pin it on vaccines. Stick around, he'll even get better and before you know it, he'll start calling you names, too. Every topic he comments on, it's always the same same.

I told you the name "wisdom" doesn't suit you. Oh wise one, why is there a vaccine injury compensation plan, a vaccine injury court and why has the U.S. government given blanket immunity from all forms of litigation exclusively to vaccine makers? Answer: because vaccines maim and kill. Because vaccine makers were being sued out of business becuase they were found at fault so many times. Because they blackmailed the government by threatening to stop making vaccines. Irregardless of perceived saving of lives, vaccines have a sinister side. Funny "WISDOM" can't figure it out. Maybe WISDUMB is a better name for you.

Fbaomb, you need to read very carefully. No one said vaccines don't have side effects. All vaccinations and medications have side effects. One has to weigh the cost/benefit ratio.

You failed to address my questions. How many millions of lives have been saved with vaccinations? Have you ever care for a child with a life threatening illness that could have been prevented by vaccination?

Those are not the issues however.

The quack in the article above claims to treat autism.

Now follow this .....

First of all, chiropractors are NOT trained in disorders such as autism, ADHD, ADD etc etc. They are NOT. They get NO actual clinical experience with these disorders. Period. They are claiming to be experts in things which they are NOT.
They should have their licenses revoked and they should be fully investigated for practicing outside their scope of expertise.

Second, chiropractors who make these preposterous claims have NO evidence or research to support their bizarre claims. Period.

Outrageous behavior displayed by chiropractors seeking to make money off desperate and innocent parents and children.

Ok, ok, stop already. I give up.
I admit I'm not a chiropractic expert. You probably already knew that. In fact, a good friend of mine was helped by a chiropractor. I do have an associate's degree in design which I'm trying to use. I also have one semester of chemistry and biology under my belt.
You have no idea how frustrated I am. I want to be a pharmacist but instead I work next to pharmacists in the camera department of our local drug store. I'm applying now to be a tech, working next to pharmacists.
I have this laptop where they allow me to use it twice a day. And sometimes I get online during the slow hours when the boss isn't looking.
So go easy on me. I've had a tough life and this is my way of easing the tension. Sorr if I sound so cynical all the time. If you lived my shoes you would understand.

It's chiropractors like this that continue to give the rest of them the quack appeal. The controversy surrounding chiropractors will never go away or will they ever be deemed anything but alternative quack medicine when so many go beyond their scope of medical training and make such far-fetched claims.
