Any nutter can make a complaint to a regulator, its the idiots who act on vexatious complaints you have to wonder about.

For year people have been making vexatious cases against chiropractors. The five people who nominated me as a candidate for council all had vexatious complaints made against them that were dismissed. My favourite vexatious complaint was the one against Bridgit Gilmore because her cat left a few hairs on the floor. None of these...

In addition I have been printing malicious gossip about Margaret Coats a  “valued employee” who he has “absolute confidence” in. Dixon States my report that Margaret Coats position is under threat,...

Unfortunately Peter Dixon and the General Chiropractic Council are 3 years and 700 complaints too late.

  This interesting little ditty in Peter Dixons Newsletter to the profession proposing  consensual disposal of vexatious complaints(see below). This is something I was pushing for in November 2007 when I was on council, I know for a fact Dana Greene proposed a similar system a number of times during her time as a...

Its getting harder and harder for Coats and Dixon to mislead the profession. There is a paper trail, You just need to know where to look in GCC “closed” minutes.

Coats and Dixon were in Birmingham today telling the gathered chiropractors how passionate they are about chiropractic. Apparently Margaret Coats sees a chiropractor regularly, I am sorry I dont buy that, she knows so little about chiropractic and  who would be stupid enough to take on a patient, who might write to Alan Hennes...

Being kind and friendly helps patients get better.

As the best chiropractor in Europe I had always hoped it was because of my superior adjusting skills and now I know its because I kissed the blarney stone when I was young and like to have a good laugh with my clients. CAM bigots get very excited because homeopathy does not make any...

If Peter Dixon cares about the chiropractic profession as he claims, he should go now and take Coats with him or risk Self Regulation for chiropractors.

If Peter Dixon cares about the chiropractic profession as he claims, he should go now and take Coats with him or risk Self Regulation for chiropractors.

The Chiropractic associations are working on their strategy for pointing out to the General Chiropractic Council that they are failing in their statutory duty to protect the public and set standards for the chiropractic profession. It is important the associations understand this, as they can not moan about the GCC giving registrants a hard...

The associations have come together. First thing they need to say to the General Chiropractic Council; Margaret Coats must go.

On Thursday I received many e-mails notifying me of the joint statement from the four associations expressing “the entire professions lack of confidence in its regulation”. I am absolutely delighted the associations have made this statement.  Which confirms the findings of the 2005 survey which found 77% of the profession had no confidence in...

Michael Pedigo has passed on but the chiropractic profession needs to take on board his words and vision.

I was saddened to hear one of the five plaintiffs from the Wilk case  Michael Pedigo  passed away on the 10/10/2010. The Wilk case should have been a watershed for the chiropractic profession. The book is a must read for chiropractors who care about their profession and where its headed unless they can put...

  Apparently its ok for chiropractors to say they treat sciatica. After telling the profession that chiropractors were misleading the public by claiming to help people with sciatica .According to the latest bulletin on the GCC website: “Following his review of Santilli et al Professor Bronfort considered that the level of evidence for manipulation...
