At long last, the damage the General Chiropractic Council and BCA alliance is doing to the profession, is being recognised internationally.

  We all laughed five years ago when Terry Rondberg came to the UK and described the GCCs Code of Practice and Standards of Proficiency as “Chiropractic Pornography”. GCC members Kevin Proudman and Matt Flanagan were censured by GCC for not standing up for Margaret Coats as she defended the GCC, which admittedly had...

US chiropractors have Barak Obama, we have Margaret Coats

  This just showed up on the Facebook group “Chiropractic Care not prescription care“ which is up to 200 people in three weeks. Please join if you want to keep chiropractic separate and distinct from medicine. Apparently President Obama thinks “Chiropractic care is drug free, non invasive, and has shown to have a positive...

De ja vue, every 20 years chiropractors do this to themselves.

  This is a long posting hopefully it will be worth the effort. For over a hundred years chiropractors fought to protect their unique identity. The enemy is no longer a zealous American Medical Association or critics like the skeptics The enemy are those among our own ranks who want to force all chiropractors...

Born again, British Chiropractic Association joins skeptics “attack” on chiropractic.

When Richard Brown went begging for money to the international chiropractic organisations he spoke of the attack on chiropractic from the sceptics. When he is with his BCA colleagues he is talking prescribing and getting into the NHS. The “new” born again BCA (this will be their third reinvention in 15 years) is all...

Simon Singh’s side of the British Chiropractic Associations version

  I like to hear both sides of a story and I never prejudge people. Obviously as a practising Irish chiropractor I disagreed with most of what was in Simon Singhs article in the Guardian and commented in my blog on the article. I also brought the book Trick or Treatment and thought the...

Give generously to the British Chiropractic Association so they can build their bridge to oblivion.

Excerpts from the letter are in red...

Should the WFC and ECU expel the British Chiropractic Association from its ranks?

  The British Chiropractic Association is the chosen representative of   the ECU and the World Federation of Chiropractic in the UK. As the BCA has ignored the views of the majority of UK chiropractors and the WFC policy statement, on the use of Prescription Drugs and the BCA council. In addition its continued support...

Its a bit premature for Zeno and GCC to write obituary of “Vertebral Subluxation”

On becoming a member of the GCC in 2007 one of the burning issues was the mechanistic definition of subluxation that the GCC had put on its website under FAQs. I had sent FAOI requests to the GCC because it did not make sense  that a GCC working group could come up with a...

Highlights of this weeks ECU conference in London: David Byfield – how to make friends and influence Simon Singh

  David Byfield and I have never liked each other since he altered evidence against a BCA colleague for a GCC hearing in 2002. Thats him in in his grim reaper outfit with BCA president Richard Brown (well fed on GCC expenses) and former president Tony Metcalfe (butter would not melt in his mouth)....

Standing up for what you believe in

I forget sometimes how old I am, the 60s was about protest and changing the world. Make love not war was the slogan. Someone e-mailed me asking why there was a black athlete on the header of chiropractic live was he a chiropractor? I would be honoured if he was, they are two ordinary...
