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.

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.

I haven’t thought about this in many years now. Maybe letting the pain and disappointment of the most unpleasant experience in my life fade into the past. However, while surfing the web last week, I found the www.chiropracticlive.com forum and found also that my case with the GCC had been referred to. I was...
