I made this discussion to /vent some...

My plight is simply that chiropractors do more harm than good. One of my girlfriends says she swears by hers and I am sure you all have friends that say the same thing.

My problem with my girlfriend is that she has been going for over 6 years and still complains about the same back problems. 

I got into an argument with her about it and finished with,

"Cracking your bones to cure your ailments is ridiculous!"

I then hung up on her. 

I am just worried about my girlfriend as she is actually doing irreparable harm to her body. 

  1. What is your view on chiropractors?
  2. Do you go to a chiropractor on a regular basis? Why? 
  3. Have you been injured or are suffering from ailments from a chiropractor visit?
  4. How can so many people be duped by fake "science"? Is it because people are inherently more trusting of someone in a white lab coat?
  5. Why is there nothing being done to stop this quackery?! 
  6. Ask your own question!


Ever time I hear the world, "spinal adjustments"… it just makes me angry!

Hi Dale here you go. Homeopathy cures are useless. The End.

I think Steve is a member here on TA  He has some great videos.

Good video. Thanks Jason. 

I've heard from doctors that it's mostly bunk - I dunno.

Way back in my day I had serious back issues so I tried a chiropractor for a few weeks until he severely hurt me.  A few days later I told him that his "adjustment" did more damage than good but he was too busy flirting with some female patient and did it to me again.  I was done with that crap.  Later I discovered that I had a compressed L4 L5 and no amount of cracking is going to fix that.
