With the multitude of health problems afflicting those in Third World countries, how is Chiropractic care expected to help? One "adjustment" is supposed to improve their "wellness?" Cure parasitic infections? Cure chronic nutritional deficiencies? Will these students promote vaccination?

Brilliantly thought out point. I applaud you.
You are right. How can one of anything help anyone? If someone is starving don't give them a single meal--afterall, what's one meal going to do?
Your stupidity is breathtaking. Are you running for Congress soon?

Its probably just another KONY 2012 scam to take your money, become a millionaire and blow it all on drugs.... For some reason people always fall for this crap. How about taking care of business here in the USA before we worry about fixing the problems other countries have, we got enough of our own issues... Just my two cents...

I am asking serious questions. In the absence of any significant diagnostic equipment, what do these Chiropractic students believe they will accomplish? What will be the patient followup care once the students leave Peru? Will X-ray facilities be available? Will nutritional and life style advice, which may be valid in the United States, apply to this
poverty-stricken population?

No, it's not a serious question. Are you really that stupid?
About 3 years ago hundreds of US MD's went to Haiti, on their own dime, for three days to help out. Many were orthopedic surgeons who did their best to set broken bones from rubble injuries. If these were patients in the US, there would be months of rehab, insurance bs, follow-up visits, and, oh yeah, lawyers suing everyone for who knows what. There was NO follow up care after these US doctors left--but still plenty to do. Are you saying these people with broken bones should not have been treated since there was NO follow-up? Really? REALLY?
Some chiropractic patients feel better after being adjusted a few times or just once. In my office I see incredible results with less than three treatments. I rarely schedule any patient for more than two visits.
Like I said before, if someone is starving should you deny them a single meal? Hey, by your reasoning you should--especially if you're not going to be there the next day for a follow up meal.
Serious question. No sir, it was your stupidity talking--and you listened.

Press2, yours was a reasonable question. Those chiropractors will do little more than help with some back and neck stiffness. I suppose that can be a good thing. But to your greater point, chiropractic in that situation offers very little in the way of significant help. You are correct, they will not have diagnostic equipment available to them. No x-ray, no CT scans, no laboratory.

For this chiropractor washington to compare cracking backs to feeding poeple and surgically repairing broken bones is more indication of his lack of understanding what real health care is all about. those MDs had access to x-ray machines surgical equipment including all the necessary medications and antibiotics.

Those chiropractors would do better to bring ffod and raise money for medicine than to spend their resources cracking backs.

Typical loser remark.
I can't help it if 'cal/wisdom' sucked at being a chiropractor. I regularly see tons of patients with respiratory and gastrointestinal disorders who get better with chiropracitc.
The only proof I need is the patients getting better. The loser and fraud, wisdom/callahan says,....but, but, but there's no research to support this...but, but, but...."
Yeah, ok, liar. Patients ONLY care about getting better. What other 'proof' does anyone need? wis/cal's opinions are worthless. No one cares about him. He's nothing. A weak man with no power or influence over anyone. Just a lying clown who inflates his resume.
wis/cal sucked at being a chiropractor. He didn't know what he was doing. No wonder he's bitter and angry.
Practice is simple: you get people better, they pay you cash. If you don't get people better and suck at what you do (like wisd/cal) no one will see you and you become broke. That's the bottom line. That's why wis/cal is angry and jealous of me. Period.
