Any REAL doctors out there?

Any scientific study ever found and identified an actual subluxation (http://www.chirobase.org/01General/chirosub.html)?

How these guys ever managed to qualify for medical insurance compensation is a mystery.

I haven't had much use for chiropractors since my youngest son's little friend told me some years ago that his father (a chiropractor) would not allow him to be vaccinated for anything because, his dad said, all he needed was chiropractic to stay healthy. That, and the fact that absolutley everyone else he had contact with was vaccinated, made his claim appear to be true. His dad also ran an ad in the local newspaper urging people to come to him first for things like chest pain and skin conditions. #-o

Subluxtions are at leastas real as Planet X!

My sister is an RN. My wife is an RN with a masters degree as a clinical nurse specialist. The stories they tell of people harmed by chiropractors are truly frightening. I find it hard to believe that they are allowed to see patients. In my opinion, the auto repair industry has more safeguarding procedures than any chiropractor association.

It's known as lobbying.

This is hogwash. Chiropractic is pretty much all hogwash.

(My own father being an acupuncturist, I have some firsthand experience with "hogwash". :roll: I've never met any "alternative" practitioner quite as foolhardy as the fellow Gethen mentioned though. I feel sorry for him... And a hell of a lot more sorry for his poor son. :o )

We have had an extensive discussion (http://www.skepticfriends.org/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3338) on this topic over at The Skeptic's Friends Network if anyone cares to read any of it. My main response is near the bottom of page 2.

There are good links there, the main one being Chirobase. (http://www.chirobase.org/) It has everything you ever wanted to know and then some.
