The real underlying problem with this and other chiropractic boards is that they continue to allow their chiropractors to use unfounded and bizarre chiropractic "treatments" like activator, nucca, dnft, network, ak etc etc. None of those commonly used "treatments" have any research or evidence to support their use. NONE.

A full investigation needs to be done to expose the chiropractic field. The quackery needs to be shut down. NOW!

Thousands upon thousands of documented articles on MDs, in this country alone, selling dangerous drugs for non medical use just to fund their Mercedes and Hawaiian cruise.

The doctor above is not an isolated case. The problem is epidemic. Tens of thousands of MDs are over prescribing dangerous drugs to get that all important Hawaiian cruise so they can eat lobster and steak while their patients suffer and die. To them, its a fair trade off. Their patients die, they eat lobster.
Fake Cancer doctor (MD) selling herbs to cure cancer. This is not an isolated case.

She must be jailed instantly. People are dying because of her quackery.

The stories on MDs poisoning patients for profit never end.

I concur with Wisdom. The majority of chiropractors use "bizarre and unfounded" "treatments". Wisdom named just a few of them.

Not sure why the chiropractor above linked stories about MDs. Those are totally irrelevant to this topic. And for sure, the majority of medical doctors practice evidenced based medicine. The majority of chiropractors, on the other hand, engage in quack procedures and "treatments". Again, Wisdom named a few of them.

Of COURSE callahan concurs with wisdom. He IS wisdom.
The truth is this--if wis/cal was ever a chiropractor, he was horrible at it.
I see tremendous clincial results every day at my clinic--and not just back pain. I have tons of patients with respiratory problems, and gastrointestinal disorders. Most improve with chiropractic care.
Now watch this. The loser, wis/cal is going to say there's no research to support this. Well, loser, patients getting better is the only proof THEY need. No one cares about you. You're nothing. You have no power or influence over anyone.
You sucked at chiropracitc. Fine. But I don't.
I don't see hundreds of patients a day (around 60, sometimes a lot more and some days only 40 or so). But they pay me cash because I get results. I do not accept one dime of insurance--ANY insurance.
Chiropractic is the best profession ever. I couldn't be happier.

What these chiropractors did could not hold a candle to GalxoSmithKline who today was fined 3 BILLION dollars for bribing doctors and downright lying about what their drugs could do.
http://www.latimes.com/business/money/la-fi-m...
One can only guess how many people were maimed killed in the name of greed. The number is mostly likely near a million killed or maimed. The fraud and con, wisdom, who is NOT an MD, condones this behavior. "Hey, what GlaxoSmithKline did was scientific and helped more than they killed or maimed."
The 30,000 plus doctors who agreed to be bribed, who gladly accepted Madonna tickets and cruises, were only too happy to prescribe these drugs off label and lie to their patients. See, these doctors think there is nothing wrong with killing a patient just so they can see the Material Girl in person. And that's the truth. Read the story.
In the meantime, you can count on one hand the number of people in the world ever injured by a chiropractor. But millions have been helped through chiropractic care without getting poisened. That's also the truth.

Again, not relevant to the topic. No one here is defending fraud. Except the chiropractors of course.

We all relish the day when "chiropractic" is fully investigated and the boards that promote unfounded chirpractic treatments are themselves investigated.

It can't come too soon. Why washington chiro refuses to help weed out chiropractic fraud is beyond me. So he's part of the problem.

Wrong, fraud. It is completely relevant. You're the one who isn't relevant.
Folks, the liar, wisdom loses yet another argument so he breaks out 'cal'. Pathetic.

The Glaxosmithkline scheme of fraud, killing and maiming is of biblical proportions. The doctors involved agreed to kill and maim hundreds of thousands of innocent people just to see a Madonna concert. The federal government is finally on their toes. They did the investigation and finally weeded out a major criminal and made them pay 3 billion dollars. More investigations need to be done. But it's a good start.

Chiropractic promotes life by releasing pressure of a nervous system and calming down the adrenals and sympathic nervous system...what do you do ????? Mask the symptome...LOL what a joke!!!! The only true healing takes place inside the body!!!! Medicine just amuses the patient while the body does the real healing its a joke and if your not laughing then u are a brain washed sucker and keep taking those meds that are KILLING you duh???? 250,000 die a year from properly prescribe drugs and surgery....get a life Chiropractic is TAKInG OVER the HEALTH CARE....Dont hate dont be mad we just get WAY better results...LOL :) ;):D

Here we go again. Another quack chiropractor bashing medicine in an effort to rationalize his quackery.

says the chiropractor, " Research I have more research on Chiropractic success than u have ...." and "Medicine just amuses the patient while the body ..."

Activator is the most widely used "chiropractic" technique in the world. Tens of thousands of chiropractors use the activator clicker to treat people with every known illness and disorder.

fact; there is NO evidence that the activator clicker is good for any particular condition. If you have "evidence" please post the link. Until then, stop your Bull Crap.

And since chiropractors get NO actual clinical experience using, prescribing or treating with medications, they are NOT qualified to comment.

I'm wondering if this quack has ever heard of antibiotics, antihypertensives, thyroid medications, insulin, etc etc,... all of which do more than "amuse the patient". they allow the patient to heal, they allow the patient to live a better quality of life. Many allow the patient to LIVE.

You dumb ass chiropractor!

Hopefully you will live your entire life, and those that are close to you as well...without the need from anyone from the medical field (sadly this is highly doubtful).....as according to your rant....all you need is a little click-click, lumbar roll, rotary break....etc. Wake up.

why would they call us doctors for 118 years if we didnt' work u dumb sheep...I'm even considered a primary care doctor in the state of california I took over 4330 hours in a class room taught by MD's with a 90% manditory in class hours which is not manidtory for MD's which by the way spend...3825 hours in a class room which means we have over 400 more hours of class room education than any MD. MDs are very dumb as a matter of fact I can blow any MD out of the water when it comes to diagnosising cancers, xray...I get the wrong reports from MDs all day. WE are doctors primary care doctors just like DOs just like MDs. If we are Nationally licensed doctors. Nationally reconized by the United States of America to be a primary care doctor for the last 118 years. Guess what the MDs called us Quacks all the way up to 1984 were we suied the S@#T out of the AMA at the Wilks trial for anti trust and slander and guess what dumb sheep WE WON!!! So no MD has the right to slander our name again call the AMA for me and ask them if were Quacks and see what they say....hahaha dumb sheep...don't be jealous because ur such a dumb sheep u couldnt become a doctor yourself ahahaha dumb sheep!!!!

MDs lost the art of healing to the technology of Medicine....hahaha its a design and its purposful dumb sheep...there is no money in the cure only the treatment dumb sheep so because of that the MDs hate Chiropractor. WHY? because we get them better huh what a concept here we go dumb sheep i don't want to lose u sooooo that means if u go to the chiropractor u'll never go back to the MD. because we fix the problem NOT mask the symptom....Dumb sheep its hard to follow but if u have a brain cell left use it really hard...and figure out why? Drug companies like big pharma are ur new doctors....I knew u hippies would love that hahahahaha. I 'm healthy i ONLY go to chirpractors i haven't been sick in 10 years.....my neighbor who is always sick goes to the doctor regualarly....hmmmmmmmm does any one see anything wrong with that....or maybe u need two brain cells to figure it out!!!!! hahahah

This is ridiculous can't we just get along? mds and chiropractors should definitely work together towards inhancing the health care for our communities and families. there's plenty of evidence to back up chiropractors, medical doctors are 100 percen
t necessity and life savers. you also have to look at doctors as a single person
not as a profession. because like everything else there are good doctors and bad doctors. there are good chiropractors some bad ones. Structure relates to function. Simple. Let me move your atlas a few mm over to the right see if you dont understand that can increase nerve pressure furthermore decreasing nerve transmission. pick up greys anatomy, take a look at the nervous system, then go take a look at the backbone or vertebrae, which is a movable joint, which can get stuck from years of wear and tear. therefore increasing nerve pressure therefore increasing pain. problem is it takes time to make those corrections. if youre 18 years old I can fix you in 1 visit, if youre 65 I can't . I add motion 2 joints that are stuck. If you've never had that kind of pain you would never understand. it takes time to make corrections like putting braces on your teeth that takes two years . we are highly skilled doctors trained to correct misalignment of the spine. like building a house you have to have a good foundation before u can build the walls and we my friends are musculoskeletal beings.:) have a healthy day .

My "colleague" above made the stupid statement, " if youre 18 years old I can fix you in 1 visit, if youre 65 I can't".

And that is exactly why the medical profession labels most chiropractors .... quacks.

Souonds like the other chiropractor above uses nucca. Fact there is NO legitimate evidence for using "nucca" to treat any condition. NONE

Another reason the medcial profession laughs at most chiropractors.

Oh and here's a little fact. The clinical experience that MDs get is far far superior to that of the chirpractic clinical experience. Classroom hours? Don't be an idiot.

It was an analogy.... simply to say that some people can be fixed quicker than others. out of all valuable information I gave you took 1 sentence. what are you an idiot....i knew you were inept but now just a plain idiot!!! I see 65 to 95 patients a day . I treat 5x the amount of patients as MD my whole practice is based on referrals. Maybe try to learn what and why we do what we do. because weather you like it or not. I'm a doctor!:D have a great day haters if all you chiro haters need some one to hate please feel free to hate on me and my pain free healthy family, which half are medical doctors, their ust not ignorant.
