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.

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...

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...

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...

What is the difference in the service provided by a regulated osteopath, a chiropractor or a physiotherapist?

What is the difference in the service provided by a regulated osteopath, a chiropractor or a physiotherapist?

When I used give talks to chiropractors and students one of my slides would put up the British Chiropractic Associations definition of Chiropractic , The British Osteopathic Associations definition and the chartered physiotherapists definition and would ash which was the chiropractor. Last year I interviewed 8 prospective new graduates from AECC and asked each...

Subluxation – An historical concept? We dont think so ! The UCA starts the fight back.

As one of the original founder members of the UCA, can I say how delighted I was to get this postcard in my post today. We formed the UCA to defend traditional chiropractic practice and in recent years the UCA has failed to recognise the light at the end of the tunnel was a...

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...

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...

GCC defines “subluxtion”

Unfortunately chiropractic like medical undergraduates have little discussion concerning the philosophy of health and yet it is an essential part of the way in which we understand the world. This omission from chiropractic education may explain why the extreme wings off the profession are guided by dogma and the evangelical teachings of their chiropractic...
