Chiropractors Gone Wild

Chiropractors gone wild. Wild and crazy... in a very bad way. So bad that they are a disgrace to their profession and a threat to public health.

Half-way through the New Mexico state legislature is a new law establishing a new class of "advanced" chiropractors able to prescribe medication.

People who have no idea what Chiropractic is about, and who have the typical racist views of Chiropractic and chiropractors, will sometimes put chiropractors down by such remarks as "they can't even prescribe medication." After this comes the inevitable "They didn't go to medical school, and they aren't even real doctors!" Do dentists go to medical school? Podiatrists? Engineers? Physicists?

Who are the real doctors? Something to think about.

Why would a chiropractor ever want to prescribe medication? This would only be a chiropractor of such grotesquely low self-esteem, and esteem of his or her own profession, that there would be no real understanding of what Chiropractic actually is. If its purpose was to alleviate pain (which it is clearly not), then pain-relieving medications would be in order.

What is Chiropractic? It is the detection, analysis and correction of vertebral subluxation, allowing the body to heal, and to function at a higher level of wellness. Now, if someone could demonstrate to me that the human body was created with a deficiency of drugs, and an oversupply of organs, I might want to return to medical school. Don't hold your breath!

The fact is, chiropractors should have zero desire to prescribe medication. Those who do, are ignorant of Chiropractic's purpose, and probably incompetant in the art of Chiropractic, the chiropractic adjustment.

Then there is the public health issue. OK, these "advanced" New Mexico chiropractors my be getting a few weeks training in pharmacology. That is nothing compared to what one would receive in medical school, internship and residency. MD's already make millions of drug errors, probably hundreds of thousands having terminal consequences. How do a bunch of misguided, incompetant chiropractors come off to jump into this very dangerous pool? This is nuts!

Why would you want to get a prescription from a chiropractor? Why would you want to get an adjustment from an MD?

Let this New Mexico insanity be a lesson. Do you go to a chiropractor who is doing 47 different New Age and/or physical therapy things, never taught you about Innate Intelligence, Vertebral Subluxation, etc., never did X-rays and neurological scans nor put you on a plan of care, and can't even adjust you, who uses some weird device to vibrate your spine?

Do not expect the government to protect you, or to assure competance in any way, let alone excellence? Don't be so naive. Think for yourself. Choose straight (real), serious Chiropractic for you and your family.
