No, chiropractic is complete horseshit from top to bottom; general illnesses are not caused by subluxations of the vertebrae or other spinal issues that has absolutely no basis in reality or in science. Many chiropractors also dabble in other crap like homeopathy or acupressure as part of the alternative medicine bumper bucket of bollox. Please do not try to excuse this nonsense. To claim it has any basis is to tell a lie.RoadScholar wrote: Crap; that statement is garbage. I myself and others I know have been helped immensely by chiropractic care. My doctor has been the team chiropractor for the Orioles baseball team for some twenty years. He is an excellent practitioner.
There are decent medical practitioners who dabble in alternative medicine, but they are decent in spite of their adherence to anti-scientific, irrational, unethical nonsense, not because of it.
You might think you have been helped by it, but the mechanisms that alternative medicine uses to achieve apparent success are well-known and have absolutely nothing to do with the ridiculous rationale of the actual treatment applied. In particular, suggestible, and even not-so-suggestible, people like the care and attention. You clearly know a lot of suggestible or gullible people! The fact that your practitioner provides some care to a baseball team is wholly irrelevant, why should that count in its favor? The English royal family is apparently keen on homeopathy, but that doesn't make water a good medicine.
In general, we are against "alternative facts" here - that's what you are spreading. If you believe otherwise, start a thread somewhere and explain in detail how the horseshit of chiropractic meets any rational criteria for effectiveness and ethicalness. References to sports teams are not required!
