“Scientist”, Stephen Hughes has “specialist” knowledge in chiropractic care of children. It is an absolute disgrace that he has been admonished by the General Chiropractic Council.

When I ran for a place on the General Chiropractic Council I was nominated by 5 chiropractors who had been the subject of vexatious complaints which had been thrown out by the GCC. I warned it could be you. While a member of council I warned BCA president Tony Metcalfe of the problems within...

A long time ago now, I was walking up the mountains in north Italy with an uncle of mine. I was about 14 years old. I remember asking him (in Flemish): “dad is a GP and you are a chiropractor, what do you do differently?” To which he slowly replied: “We are both trying...

Oh Dear! The bit I like best is in the last paragraph I believe the BCA President is an avid reader of this blog and advises  “dont believe all you read. In recent months Ive seen comments made about the BCA that are clearly designed to damage its reputation and adversely affect the confidence...

Why is the osteopathic profession growing at a much faster rate than the chiropractic profession in the UK? Are they just nicer people?

There are twice as many Osteopeaths in the UK as chiropractors when  only five years ago it was a third, there are possibly ten times more chiropractors practicing around the world than Osteopaths. When I was on the GCC council the Registrar was refusing registration to about 50% of overseas applicants, others might say...

According to BCA president Richard Brown the General Chiropractic Council is a “cracking success”, Zeno is still not convinced

At the recent European Chiropractic Union conference in London BCA president Richard Brown outlined  why the UK regulatory model is a “cracking success”, I wonder if the pun got a laugh or were there chiropractors present who knew the reality of regulation for the chiropractic profession.

British Chiropractic Association asks the General Chiropractic Council to seek prescribing rights for its members

A ballot of BCA members has resulted in 78% of the votes cast (which was not that many), being in favour of asking the GCC to approach the Medicines Healthcare Regulatory Authority to set in motion a proposal to secure prescribing rights for chiropractors. This is a sad day for chiropractic, but at least...

Would Herbert Ross Reaver have remained on the register of the General Chiropractic Council

Chiropractic has a rich history of activists who were prepared to go to jail for the chiropractic profession.When the iron doors of the Scott County Jail shut on D.D. Palmer in the spring of 1906 he was destined to be the first of hundreds of chiropractors who would “go to jail for chiropractic” through...
