From the article ....

"There is simply no evidence based on proper clinical trials that spinal manipulation can ameliorate children conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), nocturnal enuresis, infant colic, asthma, or boost to the immune system.(6) Conversely there is extensive documentation of serious adverse effects caused by chiropractic spinal manipulations.(7, 8)

Despite of all this, some chiropractic organizations, for example the American Chiropractic Association, promote chiropractic care of infants and children under the theory that “poor posture and physical injury, including birth trauma, may be common primary causes of illness in children and can have a direct and significant impact not only on spinal mechanics, but on other bodily functions”.

Glad to see people are finally catching on to the quackery that is SO prevalent within the chiropractic enterprise.

Even on these "topix" blogs, many chiropractor have claimed to be able to cure/treat things like ADHD, deep wounds, bed wetting, parkinsons, and erectile dysfunction.

These chiropractors are a bizarre bunch. Stay far away from these quacks.

Yet again, let's take wisdom's 'sage' advice. He's the same sage who called all nurses "quacks." Wisdom's exact words on nurses, his EXACT words, "All nurses are quacks since they don't need to take an entrance exam to get into nursing school." Wisdom's EXACT words.
So, yeah, let's take this dumb ass's word for everything now. Man, this creep really seems to know. DUMB ASS

Didn't take long for a chiropractor to post some bizarre rant.

No surprise there.

They would be bizarre if they weren't true. But a fact is a fact. A few months ago wisdom in fact DID call all nurses "quacks." These are wisdom's EXACT words about nurses, and I quote: "All nurses are quacks because they didn't have to take an entrance exam to get into nursing school." Wisdom's EXACT words about nurses. What a dumb prick.

dianna, shows just how busy he is.

He's a chiropractor. I expect lies and bizarre claims from him. It really does help make my points.

The problem with chiropractic is that it is overwhelmingly run by quacks. Plain and simple. All chiropractic organizations, schools, and state boards are run by "subluxation causes disease" believing quacks.

The very few ethical chiropractors out there never stood a chance. Some chiropractors where able to see there way out of chiropractic. Indeed, one of the nurses at the hospital where I work was a chiropractor. The waiter I had several months ago is a chiropractor who is making more money than any of his classmates who had graduated 2 years ago.

There are many chiropractors who post at "chirotalk" who have found there way out of chiropractic. Some are PAs, RNs, and PTs.

Thanks for posting "dianna".

AHHHHHHHHHHHH HA AH AH HA! The above rant was brought to you by wisdom. Like that one board certified MD neurologist said about wisdom: "The poster wisdom does not represent us. He's an embarrassment to the medical community. He's just an angry flake with a warped perspective of chiropractic."
I hope that neurologist caught that post where wisdom called all nurses quacks.
