"chiropractic resurgence"? Pure fantasy.

"Chiropractic" has been going down hill for many years. Many chiropractors have left or are leaving the field.

Chiropractic "treatments" are not based on legitimate studies. In a day in which most people are moving towards well founded and science based/evidenced based treatments, "chiropractic" will continue to its downward spiral.

Let's be real, the most used chiropractic treatments like "activator" and "gonstead" are pure quackery.

Chiropractic school enrollment is way down.

Wisdom has said all along that he failed in practice. That's no secret. Oh, but that means if he failed, then everyone must fail since he's the smartest of the bunch. he he he
Folks, wisdom is just a sore loser who failed as a chiropractor.
I'm a very successful chiropractor and I couldn't be happier.
Oh, this thing about one chiropractic college closing? Look online--12 law schools in the US closed last year. Does that mean law is dying profession? See how ridiculous that sounds?
Institutions fail because of bad business descisions.
Chiropractic is strong. It's wisdom who is the failure. He said so himself. Oh, and he's not an MD.

Check out the enrollment at ANY chiropractic school and you will see a dramatic decline.

Funny how you chiroquacks can't even admit the obvious truth. Then again, you are chiropractors. Same idiots who click spines with an "activator" for a living.

Wisdom posts as if he's competing for "the biggest idiot contest" each day.
Fact: Applicants are down in law schools by 34%. Oh, that must mean the field of law is quackery. See how ridiculous that sounds?
Wisdom is bitter because he failed. Then again, he's not very bright, so you have to cut him some slack. Pity him, like you would pity a wounded, helpless animal.
Chiropractic is fantastic! I am the luckiest person in the world since I get to help thousands of people each year and I do great financially. I could have retired years ago. I don't want to. I can't wait to get to my office each day.

I do not agree with Wisdom at all. Chiropractic care is becoming more and more popular and the West Hollywood chiropractor I see at http://www.activebodychirocare.com couldn't be more spot on with my treatments. I couldn't even lift a gallon of milk before I met him and I would get chronic migraines. I have been tested my whole life and tried medicine for the pain and he is my miracle worker.

and what exactly are you basing your "facts" on? I can use fancy quotations too!

As a chiropractic student my class is the largest the school has seen since it's opened and they only expect each class coming in to grow. Also speaking as a student, I have been given countless studies to read that follow the scientific method just as in any other modality of medicine. We don't claim to be a cure-all and in fact encourage all sources of medicine to work together. I'm sorry your ignorance is preventing you from better health!

Hey "cupcake". I was a chiropractor. You don't get to make bogus claims here.

You have a lot to learn if you think popular chiropractic "treatments" like activator and gonstead follow the "scientific method". I'm guessing you are not educated in basic research or"scientific methods".

But, I need a good laugh. Feel free to link those "best practices" and double blind/random controlled" studies you think you read. the "activator" is THE most popular chiropractic treatment/technique used by tens of thousands of chiropractors throughout this country. Show me those "studies" you think exists.

And contrary to what you claim ... chiropractic school enrollment is way down. Indeed, a chiropractic school recently closed its doors due to poor enrollment.

Indeed, income is dramatically down for chiropractors.

Tell me what diseases YOU think are caused by chiropractic "subluxations". please provide those studies.

Is activator better than gonstead for a particular condition? how do you know?

Lastly, I'm glad you "don't claim to be a cure all". Because ... No one thinks that.

Cupcake,
Wisdom has admitted countless times that he failed in practice.
Let me give you some idea of what kind of liar wisdom is.
First, he brags he's a Phd, MD who is the head of neurosurgery at a "well known" NY hospital. This, after years denying he was an MD or a chiropractor. He fabricated both degrees in less than a week-oh, and finished his 'residency' in less than an hour. I guess if you're going to lie, it may has well be a whopper. So, no, he's not an MD or head of any major hospital department.
Next, and you'll have to read this one twice, wisdom said NOOPE, meaning a chiropractor accepting insurance payments with No Out Of Pocket Expenses from the patient was legal! You read right. Wisdom said NOOPE was legal. Fact: NOOPE is a felony punishable by prison time and license revocation. But, well, you know, the 'expert' wisdom did say that NOOPE was legal and offered it as sound advice. Once again outing himself as the laughing stock and an embarrassment and insult to real experts. And yes, NOOPE was NEVER legal anywhere. And if he practiced that way then that would explain why he's NOT practicing now.
There's more, a lot more, but you get the idea.
As another poster said, wisdom is a negative self absorbed jackass who lies about everything.

Cupcake,

See this? The jackass wisdom is trying to goad you into his world full of losers. Don't buy into it. Losers love company. Cupcake, you're not a loser, wisdom is.
Wisdom failed in practice. That's clear. He's angry and jealous. That's also clear. Oh, and he's no MD.

With the number of people suffering from back pain or neck pain increasing every year, so too does the number of chiropractors. The chiropractors or the doctors of chiropractic are trained professionals, who can manipulate your spine to help the vertebrae align in the correct position. In most cases, back pain or neck pain is the result of improper position of some bone, ligament, or muscle. To correct this misalignment, seeking a chiropractor becomes necessary.
Today, you will find many [link=http://www.drtaheridc.co m/]chiropractors in Virginia[/link], who can provide you fast and gentle relief from back pain, neck pain, and any other spine related injury. Despite the availability, many people today are not sure what to look for when choosing a good chiropractor. Below are few things that will help determine if the chiropractor you choose is good or not.
Honesty - The first thing you should do is look for honesty in the chiropractor you choose. If the chiropractor is honest, he or she will advise and provide you the best treatment for the faster results. Besides, an honest and good chiropractor will always keep track of your progress and knows when you can discontinue the treatment.
Certified - This seems the most obvious point that comes to mind when you seek for a chiropractor, but still it may be a good idea to check for their certificates. Make sure that you get the treatment from a chiropractor, who is certified by the “American Chiropractic Association”.
Competency - Different chiropractors these days use different techniques to manipulate the spine; hence, make sure what they specialize in before choosing them for your treatment. Besides, you will even find some chiropractors in Virginia, who are capable to use state-of-the-art technologies to provide you fast and gentle relief.
If you are sustaining with back pain or neck pain, and are looking for a good chiropractor in Virginia, then you must seek Dr. Faranak Taheri.

I think that chiropractors do a really good job. My mom has gone to a chiropractor in Tinely Park, IL and everytime she comes back from them she feels so much better. I think they help a lot. http://www.tinleychiro.com/Chiropractic/

Of course the above poster is lying. Clearly he's not a chiropractor. But nice try. Now get back in that welfare line. Don't worry. I work hard enough in my practice to support a lot of loafers.

"Clearly he's not a chiropractor."

But you are?

You don't know the first thing about chiropractic.

You don't even know that the most used chiropractic "treatment" (activator) has NO evidence or research to support its use.

More avoiding the question by the tool 'wisdom'. Thus a repeat--as promised.

The above con,'wisdom' has not yet answered the question on he managed to swindle insurance companies while he was in practice--by not rendering a diagnosis or treatment plan and performing 'generic manipulaton' with no specific condition or treatment in mind. No diagnostic codes. No treatment codes. No nothing. This I've got to hear. I like good stories about cheats like the above con.
I'll keep on posting this until he answers. This may take a while. It could be hundreds if not thousands of times I post this. he he he

he he he The fraud did NOT answer the question with his ever so clever 'diversionary bs' answer. Question: How did the tool (wisdom) defraud so many insurance companies? He said he performed 'generic manipulation' during the 'mercedes 80's' and did NOT treat any specific conditions--YET the insurance companies still paid him. How??? Don't worry. This will be repeated hundreds of times.

I'd rather speak of frauds--the tool 'wisdom' is the biggest one of all. Here's why:
Fact: The tool said while he was practicing chiropractic he performed "generic manipulation" non-specific for any condition. Really? Then tell us, fraud, how did you pull off your insurance company swindle?
Folks, the tool said he did 'very well' as a chirorpactor and collected tons of insurance money during the 'mercedes 80's' when insurance money flowed freely.
In order to collect that money, insurance companies require DIAGNOSIS and TREATMENT codes. I can just see it now--the fraud was able to collect insurance money by telling Blue Cross "See here--I'm an honest man. I have to admit chiropractic is quackery, so I'm not going to state a diagnosis for this patient since chiropractic isn't good for any condition, and I'll perform general, non-specific manipulations for no reason, but please, pay me anyway."
Oh, and Blue Cross happily coughed up thousands of dollars and everyone lived happily ever after.
Get real. Insurance will NOT pay a dime unless they have a working diagnosis code and specific treatment protocols for SPECIFIC conditions. So if the tool collected money from insurance companies, he was lying from both sides of his lying mouth--that's called FRAUD. And here the tool is banging the "I'm better than you, and "I'm above all of that" bible. Oh, but now he's in 'critical care' yet has 8 hours a day to post lies online.
To top it off--if the tool did in fact give the insurance companies a diagnostic code and in fact DID give the insurance companies a treatment code--knowing he was just making them up to be paid since he didn't believe what he did--then that makes him the ULTIMATE fraud. And he's preaching to you? Really? Really???? What other lies has he been feeding you? Just asking.
The tool wisdom is a massive fraud--caught in his own admissions of thievery. He cannot be trusted. He's a liar.

I have been having some pain in my lower back and it is really starting to bother me. Is this something that I can get treated by a chiropractor? I am in a lot of pain and I don't know how much longer I can last!
