Another attempt from a chiropractor to deflect from addressing the ubiquitous fraud in chiropractic.

To claim that "chiropractic" is legit because some studies show that generic manual manipulation can be helpful for low back pain is downright dishonest.

"chiropractic" actually involves many many bizarre and unfounded treatments, ie activator, nucca, logan, gonstead, hio, sot etc.. "chiropractic" and most chiropractors claim that imaginary subluxations in the spine cause disease and illness.

There needs to be a full investigation into the business of "chiropractic".

The poster 'wisdom' is not qualifed to give any advice. She's not a practicing chiropractor and she's not an MD. Also, she knows virtually nothing about chiropractic technique. No wonder she failed in practice. End of story.

A little defensive mr. chiropractor?

I will expose you quacks at every turn.

Tell us about your experience using the magic "activator" clicker. On other blogs, I see that you've defended your colleagues who use the clicker to "cure" adha, eczema and mood swings.

Please link us the evidence and studies to support your position. Wait, I'll make it "easier" for you, link us ANY evidence that ANY "chiropractic" technique is good for ANY condition. How about starting with the most commonly used chiropractic treatment, the "activator" clicker.

More proof 'wisdom' is a fraud.
Look at her above statement: "link us any evidence that any chiropractic technique is good for any condition." This, after she stated that she practiced chiropractic for 20 years--and saw fit to soak insurance companies for plenty during what she calls "the Mercedes 80's" when bilking insurance companies was a breeze.
Let me get this straight: Now that bilking insurance companies is difficult, she now thinks chiropractic is quackery. So in other words,'wisdom' billed and collected from insurance companies for 20 years knowing, at least in her small mind, that what she was doing was quackery. Notice she said chiropractic is not good for ANY condition. That means anything. So what did she treat during those 20 years of practice while she was filling out diagnostic codes and billing insurance companies--then bragging how much they paid her?
Let's she how she back peddles from this one. Don't worry, whatever she says will be more lies. A bigger hypocrite than 'wisdom' doesn't exist. End of story.

This should be easy for any chiropractor. "educated" as they are.
