There are many things in life that just aren't fair. Like walking into work after an early morning spinning class to find a box of donuts on your desk.

"Only a chiropractic examination can detect subluxations."

Another bona fide quack. This one clams to treat "adhd" and "colic". Conditions in which chiropractors get virtually NO actual clinical experience.

When will this nonsense end.

And then, of course, she engages in bizarre and unfounded chiropractic "treatments" like AK. Virtually NO legitimate evidence to support using AK for any condition.

The founder/promoter of AK was a certified quack named George Goodheart. He not only scammed his patients, he scammed hundreds of chiropractic students out of their hard earned money/student loans. Goodheart would make the most ridiculous claims about what AK could do. My "favorite" was the claim that he could "surrogate test" a child by placing him on his mother's lap and "muscle test" the mother to tell him what was going on with the child.

Beyond bizarre. When you get desperate for help, buyer beware when choosing a chiropractor.

What makes this Chiropractor think that she has any business commenting on gastrointestinal function caused by abdominal wall compression?

After abdominal surgery (especially with a vertical skin incision), a tight three or four panel abdominal binder is often ordered to splint the abdomen allowing the patient to cough and deep breathe without extreme abdominal pain. This helps the patient to clear lung secretions caused by inhalation anesthesia and helps prevent atelectasis and pneumonia. This binder may be left on for 7 days or more. GI function returns normally and is not impaired.

Has this Chiropractor made post-op rounds lately?

Excellent advice from "placebo" who has NO medical training, no MD degree and no medical experience of any description. But, to her credit, she did learn how to use the copy and paste function well enough to plagiarize a passage from Wikipedia, you know, like all phonies do who try to pass it off as her own. Major fraud. Major phoney. Lots of pent of anger and jealousy since she can't make a living.

You are correct "Placebo", chiropractors get NO actual clinical experience in examiining, diagnosing or treating GI conditions. not to mention most of the other disorders they like to claim they can "treat". "ADD" and "turning breech babies" come to mind.

Careful "Placebo", don't use words like atelectasis around the our resident chiropractor from IL (above). It can make him very defensive about his chiropractic "training".

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HA HA HA HA HA. That's rich! I guess frauds do stick together. The tool "wisdom' and "Placebo" the equally fake MD (both have no MD degrees) make perfect bedfellows. Funny, one real MD said this about wisdom (exact quote). "It's obvious the fool who calls himself 'wisdom' is not a medical doctor. After reading his rant on the effects of Oxycontin, it is quite obvious he gained his knowledge from a single paragraph National Enquirer article on Rush Limbaugh."
That sums it up. The tool is a massive fraud and liar. He's no MD let alone "head of critical care at a famous (yet to me named) NY hospital."
Yet to be named since it doesn't exist, now does it? he he he
