"BJ went on to popularize the practice of chiropractic after he successfully eliminated the wacky rhetoric".
ha ha Lets be clear, BJ was as much a quack as was his father. BJ promoted the bizarre idea that disease was caused by misaligned vertebrae. An unfounded notion that is still promoted in today's chiropractic schools.
The "palmer" school is one of the foremost quack factories in the world. the continue to promote unfounded treatments like gonstead, activator and ak.
A full investigation needs to be done.

Let's be clear, wisdom has zero chiropractic education and his opinions are worthless.
#3 Apr 14, 2012
Only a quack would run to the defense of another quack. Don't blame me for exposing your guru.

Hey, how smart can that fraud wisdom be if he says chiropractors are quacks. If chiropractors are quacks, how come it took wisdom at least eight years of school to come to that conclusion? he he
The fraud wisdom said he was a chiropractor, then after eight years and one year of failing in practice, he realized he was a quack?
Truth be told. Wisdom is not a chiropractor. Never was. He's a liar. I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. If he was a chiropractor then he's a colossal dumbbell for failing in practice so swiftly.

Check this out pretty interesting...

yeah, I guess that's your "evidence" that activator, nucca, hio, network, sot, gonstead and every other bizarre and unfounded chiropractic "treatment" works?
Clearly chiropractic is filled with quackery.
Chiropractors never needed any legitimate research or evidence, they only talk "vitalism" and up/down inside out.
dd palmer was a quack, his son was a quack and every chiropractor who buys into their bull crap are quacks.
and they still believe that cracking backs cures deafness. Its just that it has never been duplicated since dd claimed he did it over 100 years ago. gee what a surprise. NOT!

Wisdom please the theories and advancements of the time were on par or greater than the advancements in modern medicine. How advanced was allopathic medicine back then?
These days you have many DCs working adjunct with MDs in or out of office. Clearly you love to over inflate the philosophical nature of chiropractic. While your at it why don't you bash religion as I am sure you are well opposed to it. The body is collaboration of Mind and Body, treating symptoms alone does not address the problem.
I advice you to click the link above and look at many of the advancements back in those times.

Spheno, this is getting good.
Not only does wisdom brag he was a failure as a chiropractor, he now brags he went to a flunky Caribbean medical school.
There are two qualifications for getting into a Caribbean medical school. 1. You have to have forty grand a year. 2. You have to be brain dead.
By the way, for an extra ten grand a year, these same Caribbean medical schools will let you buy a Phd to put on your inflated resume. Look it up. It's their dual program special. Any lame brain who can borrow forty grand a year qualifies.
Caribbean 'doctors' are dangerous, to say the least. I'd trust my butcher to do surgery over any Caribbean 'doctor' any day.

The Tale of a Cartoon Named Wisdom:
Perhaps he attended school in the Carribean, but he sure as he** isn't practicing any sort of medicine.
Perhaps after dropping out of chiropractic school, he thought he can attend Carribean school... needless to say when he graduated or dropped out he realized he had wasted all that money just to end up on a cot is hit mother's dirty damp basement.
So now the "self-proclaimed" street doctor raids his mothers medicine cabinet and sells them on the street. Pathetic I may add, at least if we keep him posting here, he will remain ranting downstairs and out of that Darn MEDICINE CABINET!
Well at least we figured out why he rants so bizarrely.

The activator is used by tens of thousands of chiropractors. They use it to "treat" people with every imaginable disorder.
Know how much legitimate evidence there is to support the use of activator?
That would be .... NONE! Gee did I just expose you idiots as quacks? So sorry.
Keep up the ad hominem attacks all you chiropractors. Your "professionalism" is shining through.
And please keep bashing medicine. Its just so chiropractic.
#11 Apr 27, 2012
more thank 80% of chiropractic patients have musculoskeletal complaints. The activator tool is a supplemental tool that is not the promary modality of treatment and not as highly utilized as you think.
What is even funnier is that Physical Therapists are now using activator.
#12 Apr 27, 2012
ha ha What an illogical comment.
Your justification that "we chiropractors only use activator some times" does not make it right.
Anyway, you are completely wrong. There are hundreds if not thousands of chiropractors using activator exclusively.
Its a bogus "treatment" with NO evidence that is used by thousands upon thousands of chiropractors. Many use it when they cannot actually manipulate a person's spine, and think they'd better do something. So they click away. And the dog and ony show continues.
This chiropractic quackery has to and. Along with these quacks who claim they can "spot reduce fat" with their magical lasers. It is a scam. They belong in jail.

I never believed in chiros. I hv hd two surgeries to repair discs in my back. I would not go near a chiro.
#14 Oct 14, 2013
Good. Stay away. No chiropractor wants your business anyway.
But I'm glad you got lucky inasmuch as most disc surgeries are unnecessary and fail. Maybe 5% of all disc surgeries are necessary. Finding an honest surgeon who isn't surgery happy just to make a buck is like playing Russian roulette. In my practice I've seen hundreds of patients with failed low back surgery and wished they came to me first.
#15 Oct 20, 2013
The chiropractor above, with NO training in medicine, surgery or or true physical rehabilitation says, "Maybe 5% of all disc surgeries are necessary."
OK mr. quacker, whatever you say.
I'll tell you what ... if you know of any unnecessary surgeries, call the proper authorities and report them. until then, keep your ignorant opinions to yourself.
#16 Oct 21, 2013
The above moron has no clue what he's talking about. He's not an MD and he failed as a chiropractor. Impeccable credentials indeed. ha ha
I've been in practice for many years. And very, very successful. I've seen hundreds if not thousands of failed discectomies and laminectomies. There are various forms of failed lumbar back surgeries. Most fall under the category of unnecessary. Worse, they were soley performed by the surgeron in his/her exercise to make a lot of money and swindle insurance companies, without any regard to the patient's welfare. Your garden variety 'cut and collect' scam. The number of unnecessary low back surgeries is epidemic. A full investigation is needed to put a stop to this swindling and butchering.
#17 Oct 21, 2013
Like I said, if you know of surgeons who are performing unnecessary surgeries, report them to the authorities.
Until then, try to grasp this logic mr. chiropractor....... Not all surgeries are successful. That's not the way real medical care works. Not that you have the capacity to understand that.
Name one medical doctor who is performing unnecessary surgeries.

Notice the loser wisdom always asks for evidence when he never can provide any himself.
Here are a list of easy questions. Think hard. Take your time.(watch, no chance the loser wisdom will answer since he's a fraud--watch).
1. What hospital do you work in?
2. What chiropractic school did you graduate from? And what year?
3. If you are an MD (he he) which medical school did you graduate from? And what year?
4. Exactly when and where did you take your residency?
Folks, these are simple questions real doctors with real degrees and jobs can answer. But watch, wisdom will either ignore the questions or come back with an answer which amounts to "none of your business and what does this have to do with anything." You'll see, he'll say everything but answer the questions. he he he Why? Cause he's a FRAUD and never was an MD. BINGO!!!! he he he he

I had terrible pain for three yrs. Two discs were completely crushed. I would never even then hv gone to a chiro (want to b a dr). Aftr surgery I hv no more pain. U hv a lot of nerve trying to tell me I shouldve gone to a chiro. Cracking ur bones in the spine is too risky. And will not help n could do more damage. 5% u say? I say bull... I have stenosis, ddd, osteoarthritis, sciatica. May need more surgeries in the future. But I won't go near a chiro.!!! U talk about surgery happy drs. U want people to come back n come back. Office happy chiros
