Chiropractic injuries

Not only is chiropracty mostly a scam, based on quackery, but it can also cause serious injury. The reference above is based on cases in my country, but it is the same all round the world. It is possible that chiropracty can provide temporary symptomatic relief for one kind of back pain, but that is it ! It can do nothing else, and chiropractors have been swindling people in many countries for decades by claiming they can help a wide range of conditions. Instead, many cause nasty injuries.

The $240 000 mentioned in the reference above is merely the tip of the iceberg. A lot more damage is certain, and this is just little old New Zealand. The mind boggles at the thought of how much pain and financial hardship is caused in more populous nations.

Time to get rid of this quackery.
