Is this propaganda from the BCA? Or do the Chiropractic Alliance have some explaining to do?

Check out the actual speech

This is the in the latest editorial in the BCA magazine Contact. It is written by BCA council member Rishi Loatey explaining why BCA members should keep the Chiropractic Alliance at arms length. I have e-mailed Rishi asking if this is an accurate quote.

Rishi asks; “is  the launch of the AUKC, with it’s particular
focus on the subluxation, really a positive
development for the chiropractic profession in
the UK?

One of the objectives of the AUKC is the
adoption of the International Chiropractors
Association best practice guidelines, which list
over 340 diseases that have been improved
after chiropractic care. These ‘evidence-based’
guidelines declare that this “is supporting
evidence that chiropractic spinal care can
help the vast majority of disease states of the
body”. Furthermore, they suggest best practice
to be up to 25 visits within eight weeks for
uncomplicated mechanical axial pain, leading
up to 85 visits in 28 weeks for axial mechanical
pain with complicating factors (such as a
reduced cervical lordosis). What percentage of
your patients have you seen on 85 occasions
within seven months?

If this  is accurately quoted I would be very concerned however I suspect it may be part of the BCA propaganda machine to frighten members who are considering leaving the BCA and has been taken out of context, or gets repeated like Chinesse whispers and eventually the content changes. Could anyone provide me with the actual text. I would not be happy about any document that reads like a recipe book for chiropractic care with visit numbers for specific conditions.

Stephenson in his 33Pprinciples” clearly states in the chiropractic text book book “Disease” is a term “used by physicians for sickness”. To them it is an entity and is worthy of a name hence diagnosis” ; Any chiropractor claiming to treat disease is not practicing chiropractic.

    There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment?s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

    Hey, Came across this page by accident but absolutely loving the content. Thanks.

    @Ali ;I dont doubt the Alliance have adopted the ICA guidelines however, I would be very surprised if they ICA had presented it as stated by Rishi. I have e-mailed Rishi asking if the quote is hearsay or if he took it directly from the guidlines, so hopefully I will clear this in the next few days.

    Have a look at united we stand…. entry on 6th August 2010- identity, value, objectives [click on chiropractic alliance at arms length on this page]. Maybe it’s not propaganda

  16. Stefaan Vossen on October 12, 2010 at 16:21

    Surely, IF the Alliance wants to adopt ICA best practice guidelines then it should be possible to find that in their manifesto? And IF the ICA best practice guidelines outline these facts to be the rules by which one should be working in order to be compliant to the Alliance’s modus operandi, then Rishi would be correct?
    If not it is probably just propaganda. Nice try though

    Here is the link to the ICA Best Practice Care recommendations:

    http://www.icabestpractices.org/pdf/ICABPG_final9216_11Chapter_sep.pdf

    Good luck reading it, as it’s quite long but the summary states “There were a Basic ICA Program of care (25 visits in 8 weeks) and 5 additional ICA Programs of Care based on complicating factors and patient progress at follow-up examinations.”

    For those who want to read the full document, it can be downloaded from the ICA website for free.
