"After all, the science-based specialty of physical therapy uses spinal manipulation to treat back problems. Of course, the big difference between chiropractic and physical therapy is that chiropractic is based on a delusion, namely the concept of subluxations."

And chiropractors, going back to the bizarre founders of chiropractic, claim that these "subluxations" cause disease.

Chiropractic is a field filled with fraud and quackery.

Chiropractors can prescribe drugs in several states--New Mexico is one. I choose not to. I help thousands of people each year just with chiropractic-oh, and I make a huge living do it--all cash! And I don't accept dime one of insurance. Obamacare has zero effect on my practice. What a wonderful feeling telling the insurance companies what they can do with their forms and regulations. They don't apply to me in the least. Last year I had a patient who asked their insurance company to call me. The adjuster said he would approve four visits at my office. I told him in very frank language what he could do with his four visits. I never heard from him again nor the patient--who's thankfully seeing another provider--a sap who doesnt' mind kissing insurance companies assses. Not me, man. In fact, I think any provider, MD or others, who don't at least bill their patients for the difference the insurance doesn't pay is committing fraud and should be locked up like any other white collar scum. It's all cash for me--the ONLY honest way of doing business.
Chiropractic is the greatest profession every. Period.

Says the above chiropractor, "Chiropractors can prescribe drugs in several states--New Mexico is one. I choose not to."

ha ha ha Another lying chiropractor. No chiropractor can prescribe drugs. NOT one.

You "choose not to"? ha ha Is that what you tell your patient? Does it make you feel like a trained medical doctor?

Talk about a delusional chiropractor.

Says the liar wisdom, "I'm not only an MD, but I'm head of neurosurgery at a famous NY hospital." AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHH AH AHA HA AH AHA HA HA Didn't Hitler use the big lie too? The bigger the lie, the more convincing.

Thus, a repeat:
