What do you like about this subject?

It Is my life to help people without the use of invasive dangerous and expensive mainstream medicine. Medicine has its place but fails in spinal disorders.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

To be the best and most ethical honest physician humanely possible.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Not all Chiropractors are created equal, many have a very limited scope of practice and hang on to dogmatic science that is unproven. Many D.C.'s ruin it for the rest of us by ignoring science and graduating from sub-par institutions.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

There are "Mixers and Straight" Chiropractors. The majority are mixers and run evidence based practices. A few are straight and hold on to the subluxation theory which, they believe, causes all disease which prevents advancement of the profession with regard to mainstream acceptance. Thankfully, these are a dying breed.

Hi Mary,   If you had a TIA or stroke it is fairly easy to diagnose. I doubt the manipulation caused that since research has shown only a couple out of millions per year. I suggest you get cervical traction

2009-03-31 neck shoulder pain numbness in hands and tips of toes:

Hi Crizz,    Headaches are usually caused by nerve entrapment, I suspect yours is from a herniated cervical disc. This would also explain the radiation into the shoulders and hand numbness. Same goes for

2009-03-02 L1-L2 disc protrusion:

Hi Cathrine,    Unfortunately, the only fix to your problem is flexion/distraction. The Chiro has no business treating this unless he has the table. I can't imagine a chiropractor without one. This is

2009-02-04 Schmorl's nodes:

Dear Jean,    I don't know why such an easy question was dumped in the question pool, I can only surmise you asked a lazy doctor. A Schmorls node is a herniated disc that migrates into the vertebral body
