The Vertebral Subluxation Complex Theory.

The theory on which DD Palmer based his original hypothesis in 1895 that there was a relationship between a vertebra and Harvey Lillards ability to hear.

We now know spinal joint dysfunction effects how impulses from mechano receptors from the joints enter the central nervous system which regulates the systems the human body requires for optimal wellbeing

After the Storm–what have we learned? That Richard Brown has learned nothing .

I have got involved with a very interesting discussion on Linkedin  on the relevance of the subluxation to chiropractic. The discussion moved on to “chiropractors needs cultural authority” like the osteopaths in the US and this point of view was supported by an interview given by Richard Brown in the Austrialia  After the Storm...

If you are going to treat symptoms this is the British Chiropractic Associations advice on complying with ASA code. If you correct vertebral subluxations its irrelevant.

If you are going to treat symptoms this is the British Chiropractic Associations advice on complying with ASA code. If you correct vertebral subluxations its irrelevant.

THis is the advice the BCA is giving its members this month regarding advertising and The ASA from March the ASA CAP codes will be extended to cover on line marketing. This will come as a surprise to 700 BCA members who are being charged by the GCC with Unprofessional Conduct for infringing the...

Skeptics do more to “promote” chiropractic than  most chiropractors do.

For two year now I have resisted the temptation of  twittering, seeing no reason to share my thoughts as I take a peek at page three on the table next to me. A friend who is a big honcho in the “Social Media” world convinced me otherwise, so as of yesterday I have stopped...

Cortical Neuroplasticity With Spinal Manipulation, Exercise, Injury and Pain

Before “bigots” get too excited and start Blah, Blah, Blah “no proof”, quack, Blah, quack, Blah, quack, Blah. Let me explain; no one is saying this is proof of anything. This article in Dynamic Chiropractic is just another piece, adding to a “growing body of evidence” supporting the theory of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex....

In toto et summo

I had fun over the past few weeks. I have fun every week but these weeks had been particularly interesting. I had a few debates in Blogland and have (finally) come to understand that I am just going into repeat mode now. Same sceptics, making the same comments on the same sites. Ground Hog...

Dawn of a new age or more smoking mirrors from Coats,Dixon and General Chiropractic Council.

  The McTimoney Association seems very optimistic about the latest discussions with the GCC. The fact that members of the Alliance and the BCA sent out their own interpretation of the meeting should start bells ringing. I would advise everbody to read Tony Blairs autobiography before getting too excited. Blairs biggest regret is not...

What is your subluxation?

Mischievous as ever, I thought I’d launch into action on a topic that is very close to my heart and mind: the concept of the subluxation. Now (and I am being very serious now) although you may read this as provocation or me just generally messing around it is really not intended as such....

Am I a Chiropractor?

I don’t really know what it is supposed to mean “to be a chiropractor”. Or more correctly, I don’t know what it is that would allow me to say to someone who calls themselves a chiropractor: “you’re not a chiropractor!” even if they are registered with the GCC… Statement 1: Despite some people saying...

Chiroquackery! by Gert van der Walt

The worst thing about being thrown off the General Chiropractic Council, was the indifference shown by the chiropractic profession. Apathy is what has allowed the GCC/BCA alliance to promote their biomedical agenda for chiropractic.  In recent months I have sensed that attitudes are changing but few were prepared to put their head above the...
