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.

Will this be payback for the misery Margaret Coats and the General Chiropractic Council caused chiropractors in recent years

Chiropractors thought everything would be better after the GCC elections and regulatory reform, complaints happened to the chiropractor down the road. If the IC find there is...

A typical GCC complaint. Due to a chiropractors incompetence or just bad luck that patient came in?

De ja vue, every 20 years chiropractors do this to themselves.

  This is a long posting hopefully it will be worth the effort. For over a hundred years chiropractors fought to protect their unique identity. The enemy is no longer a zealous American Medical Association or critics like the skeptics The enemy are those among our own ranks who want to force all chiropractors...
