Does anyone have any compassion for these poor people in Peru who were expecting "Doctors" to come and treat their intestinal parasites, malaria, TB, typhoid fever, festering wounds, tumors, sick infants, and a variety of other conditions that affect the South American poor?

So one or two "adjustments" with little if any diagnostic testing is supposed to improve their health?

Does anyone here believe that it is immoral to tell these poor uneducated people that they are being treated for their multitude of diseases?

Perhaps some vitamins and nutritional counseling will help them.

Press 2 is a major asshole. The volunteer chiropractor never said he was going to cure intestinal parasites, malaria, etc. He volunteered his time and money to relieve some suffering. That's more than 'press2' has ever done for anyone.
"press2" couldn't be a bigger jerk. What a scum of a human. I have more respect for maggots than 'press2'. At least maggots add something to society.

Now what kind of "suffering" can these chiropractors relieve? So a mother brings the chiropractor a child dying of Leishmaniasis, and she is lead to believe that the "doctor" will help her child. Will the chiropractors bring their Activators? What if they are NUCCA chiropractors? Will they use Applied Kinesiology or NAET? Will they sell nutritional products? How about "Spinal Screening" at the Straw Market?

Once these chiropractors leave Peru, who takes over the chiropractic care for these people? Anyone? Or do these people now fend for themselves?

Who are the "scum" here? Either these chiropractors are delusional like most are, or maybe their "Marketing Company" told them they would get more paying customers back home if they went to see poor people in South America every once in a while.

Chiropractic is not merely a health care problem, it is a societal problem.

You are a depraved creep. No one is selling anything, jerk. This chiropractor simply wants to help, out of the goodness of his own heart. Nothing more. He's not asking for anything.
No, he's not saving the world, but he's showing poverty stricken people that someone cares for them and they're not forgotten. I admire him. And who in the hell are you to judge anyone.

he he Hey fraud! Yeah, you mrcody. How's them thar Ecco shoes working out for you today? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HA HA HA HA. Man or man did you make everyone jealous by shamelessly showing off your ever so exquisite ECCO (2 c's) shoes. Do you wear them thar shoes to impress the judge while you rat against chiropractors? Along with your best bud Donald Trump, do you invite the judge to your mansion to have broiled salmon?
See folks, mrcody is a typical, clinical liar. He tells prospective chiropractic students not to enter the field, yet (get this) claims he made a fortune in chiropractic and is now retired, golfing with Donald Trump, eating broiled salmon, wearing his ECCO golf shoes 24/7 (he says he doesn't even take them off to bathe), and is, well, now ratting on other chiropractors for a living.
A good liar will keep track of his lies. mrcody is not even a good liar.

Quotes from the article/paid advertisement:

"He was one of 12 chiropractors who TREATED more than 3000 people on the trip."

"We had a make-shift clinic set up in one of the slums of Lima."

So all these people had low back pain? Maybe they just needed "Lifestyle" advice? Detox?

You are such a moron and a troll.
No one said all these people had low back pain. You have no idea what sort of treatment this chiropractor gave. But whatever it was, it was a hell of a lot more than you ever did for anyone.
Look in the mirror first, troll, before you judge others.

Just give "Doc Washboy" a call......we hear that treating blueballs is actually his forte.....he even received the prestigious "DOBB" (Doctorate of Blue Balls) which came with advanced certification in utilizing his cold laser to treat the dreaded blueballs syndrome.......and if he can't cure you with the cold laser magic wand....he can always toggle those nuts or use his Activator on them......maybe some side posture......both sides....but of course.....or a P-A "dynamic thrust" to those blueballs!!! Good ol' Doc Washboy..he can heal most anything that ails you (so he says on every post).......he even has advanced training in Chiropractic Proctology.......his favorite, advanced certification pending......so proceed at your own risk. Now that IS funny.

It is more than clear that this washington quack had NO answers after these chiropractors were exposed as frauds. But he just couldn't help himself and had to inject his stupidity and tried to defend the indefensible. He even felt he had to defend a chiropractor who claimed he treats goldfish. Press, I got a kicj out of how you exposed washboy as a typical lying dumb ass quack.

The above was brought to you by a university professor! AHHHHHHHH HA HA HA HA! Yes, British claims to be a university professor. he he he
First, "British" is no university professor--at least not in any English speaking country. Funny how imbeciles like "British" like to pad their credentials. It's sort of like a short man wearing three inch heels. You know, makes him look more important. And why not? What's more impressive than a coward like "British" who hides behind a fake handle trying to impress total strangers? Why stop there? While British is at it, why not claim to be a Nobel Laureate? I'd believe that in a heartbeat.
Nope, no cure for blue balls. But the minute I find a cure for idiocy, I'll let you know.

How about diagnosing the subluxation with the Toftness Radiation Detector and then using Nasal Specific. That should work just fine.

Press 2, you are kill'n the quack washboy.

No chiropractor wants the public to know about the bizarre and unfounded chiropractic "treatments" like toftness ... or activator, or ak, or gonstead or nucca or dnft or network or .........

Because, as we in the know know, there ain't no evidence that any of those chiropractic "treatments" are good for anything. And these "treatments" are being used by tens of thousands of chiropractors trying to scam people out of their hard earned money. the best they can do (as seen in the above posts by chiropractor washingotn) is respond by calling you names. Its the chiropractic
way. That and bashing medicine of course.

Chiropractic is filled with quackery. The whole enterprise needs to be shut down.

Last week I treated eleven wound patients with cold laser therapy. Look at the youtube video below. I use a similar laser that is FDA approved. Works GREAT for wounds. Each year I treat over two hundred different patients with severe wounds that didn't healed with extensive medical treatment. Many of these patients are diabetics with wounds that wouldn't heal for several months and showed no sign of healing. The laser I use works wonders. My patients typically see signs of healing in as little as a week--and complete closure in less than five weeks. I get referrals from everywhere.

There are a lot of other uses for this laser such as treating tendons, joints and muscles. But the wound treatment is the most dramatic. There is nothing better than being a chiropractor!

I doubt that it is even legal to treat deep wounds in the scope of Chiropractic practice. Please post a link as to the legality of this......also what naive fool of a patient with deep wounds from diabetes or surgery or ANYTHING else would go to a Chiropractor for this....I find it to be very unusual....and alarming in fact. Where were you trained in deep wound care?.....a weekend seminar at a local Hyatt Hotel or a hospital?
