Sometimes I believed they needed more skilful and direct stimulation of spinal joints than I could provide myself, and I believed that the scientific evidence then showed that appropriate spinal manipulation had the potential to help back pain in this way, with acceptable risks.

As I said, Edzard supports his claims with references to scientific papers – it’s not his fault if some of these are behind a paywall. They are there and accessible to anyone who cares enough. He doesn’t delete input from “naysayers” as the most cursory examination of comments will reveal.

Understanding Career Education in Years 7 and 8 handbook Open Days What is at issue is, as Prof Ernst clearly states, the harm-benefit balance for chiropractic. Andy, opinion can be just as useless as an anecdote, and you are full of opinion but no fact, much like the self professed Edzard Ernst who for the past 20 years has twisted scientific research to promote his own agenda. And if you don’t think he has an agenda just go research his past. There are many studies, funded and performed by non-chiropractors, that support Chiropractic as a beneficial treatment. One such report is called the Manga Report, commissioned by the Ministry of Health of Ontario 25 years ago. It was a review of all the literature up to that point in time. It was actually commissioned after repeated requests by the medical profession so they could “shut our profession down”. What a surprise it must have been to them when the results were the opposite of what they expected. Of course they attacked the University and Dr Manga himself (up to that point in time the poster child for top notch efficacy studies in Canada). As for teaching sales techniques in the colleges, I am afraid I must have skipped out on that class, and I don’t seem to find it on any course outline from any chiro college. There are bad apples in every profession, Dentists, MD’s, lawyers, and I’ve been subject to nonsense sales techniques, lying, and pressure tactics from them all. That is the nature of earning a living for rendering services, there is always some business owner who is having a hard time making ends meet and will push the limits of what is considered morally correct. Look at how the banks push tellers to up-sell poor old ladies! Disgusting! I have taken people from the brink of giving up on life, from looking for a nursing home due to their poor health, from being told they need a hip replacement or discectomy, to having to suffer none of that, to crying in my office with gratitude that they are able to function as they could ten years earlier, and taking up activities that they gave up on. These people were not given ANY other option and weren’t listened to up till the time I saw them. But you cannot take a person with 20 years of bad physical habits and damage to their bodies and fix that in 12 sessions, it can take months and sometimes a few years to work that all out, just like physical rehabilitation can after a severe injury. But I don’t hear anyone saying that’s not appropriate?! Because it is appropriate, for the right patient. White-washing a group of people such as chiropractors with the same brush is the same as saying all Americans are ignorant, or all lawyers are crooks, sure there are a measurable portion who are, but you would be considered ignorant for saying it, as it is in this case. Edzard has already written enough nonsense to prove that he doesn’t represent the research accurately or truthfully. Its unfortunate that the newspapers don’t call him out for it when our regulatory body (the people that take our licences away) correct his articles, and it often happens that the retraction is on page 6 or there is none at all. Those don’t sell papers. And FYI, I have had approximately 3000 referrals from ortho/neuro specialists over many years that only continued to refer due to the overwhelming positive feedback from my results. These people were sent to the specialists as a last resort by their GP because they didn’t know what to do next. Over that same period in time I barely received 10 from the local GP’s, solely due to the misperception propogated by guys like Edzard that they could face legal backlash. You’d be surprised how misinformed many GP’s are about many things, and how they rely on here-say and self professed “experts” like Ernst. Speaking to sales tactics, a GP friend of mine was enticed to attend a conference many years ago (20) at York University in Toronto where Ernst and a couple of other “experts” advertised a conference on how to integrate complimentary healthcare into their practice. Five minutes into the “conference” it was clear that this was not the intention at all and my friend returned fuming from that conference. The whole thing was orchestrated to entice open minded GP’s to attend and then brain wash them into fear of any and ALL complimentary healthcare. THAT is the truth of Edzard “the expert” Ernst. He’s an expert all right, but its not on what you think. Clearly, those who find joint cracking to be unpleasant are not good candidates for “scratching the itch” with a nice round of lumbar facet joint explosions!

Campus Guides Pulmonary Medicine I believe it’s obvious that some chiropractic therapy does “work” in certain ways, for some people, some of the time. The most important factor in the usefulness of chiropractic therapy is not the nature of chiropractic as a profession, but the skill and good sense of the chiropractor whose hands are on your neck. Ethical, intelligent practitioners of any helping profession will always deliver better care than less competent members of their own or any other profession. Hard to believe article like this still exist. The most respected scientific journal on the topic of the spine is “Spine”. This journal only deals in cold, hard scientific literature. It has a paper rejection rate of 87% the highest of any research journal. They concluded that the incidence of arterial injury is so low that a patient has a better chance of the chiropractic doctor dropping dead during treatment than the patient has. If this isn’t enough for you, consider cold hard cash…in the USA, many chiropractic doctor’s pay less in premiums for malpractice than they do for their auto insurance! Again, the numbers don’t lie. Oh, and speaking of the deaths caused by doctors, in the USA, there are approx. 400,000 preventable deaths per year making the medical errors the 3rd leading killer in the country after heart disease and cancer.  Find a Spine Center Site search Notes Your response is so patently moronic, it isn’t worthy of a genuine reply. Another Nightingale acolyte who pretends to know something about science (LOL!), rocks up to upvote its two resident cretins. Hilarious. chronic and acute pain syndromes, including myofascial pain syndromes How to talk careers with your child The chiropractic community has grown up under scrutiny and publishes articles based on science with controlled environments and has results to show it works. Wasn’t there a scandal showing a large percentage of medically published articles that have been forged and lots of “research” that has been untested but taken just believed as the truth… Anyone that says that chiropractic is a just for symptom relief is obviously uneducated to the field. A specific scientific adjustment to the body treats the root cause of many problems and when treated consistently enough the body adapts to how it needs to be aligned, and stays that way more consistently. A symptom relief is what the majority of medicine is, NSAIDS and other drugs that lead to other side effects. That doesn’t happen in chiropractic, many good chiropractors will adjust 10s of thousands of patients in their career and won’t do so much as crack a rib, but get the bad rep of being dangerous. MD’s prescribe drugs that lead to hundreds of disorders but nobody could care less because its the norm. In a perfect world chiropractors and medical doctors would utilize each other well and care about patient wellness, but MD students are taught not to let that happen. It speaks for itself that lots of people go to see Doctors of Chiropractic without symptoms for wellness care but people only go to doctors when they have symptoms.

Laser therapy penetrates the soft tissue and sub-cutaneous areas of the back and into the spinal discs, tissue, bone and muscle. The laser light array generates no heat. I’ve tried heat packs and hot water bottles, they merely provide minimal temporary relief and the problem persists. I’ve also had this treatment for migraine and have reduced my medication requirement for the problem by 65%. Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it. Doctors don’t like them because the only thing they can do is prescribe you a drug and hope that it works. I personally feel substantially healthier with Chiropractic adjustments.
