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...

Chiropractors are like turkeys paying for Christmas.

This is one of my favourite posting from the forums, written by a chiropractor I had always seen as an establishment figure. Unfortunately few had the courage to walk away. 17.5% VAT is a lot to give up. I left Tony Gilmore did, Dana Greene, Frank McBride, . Ten years ago there was such...

Business as usual; declares General Chiropractic Council chairman Peter Dixon as he rearranges the deckchairs.

  Surely in most companies if a “serious” complaint had been made about the chairman of a company he would step down pending the completion of the investigation. The chairman would most definitely not be saying “we will investigate every complaint” Many complaints have been made about GCC management and to my knowledge nobody...

GCC is using the ASA to define the chiropractic scope of practice

May 30, 2009
By

This is another sceptic blog; The Lay Scientist who has put all the ASA decisions against chiropractic together. The bloggers can’t figure out why the GCC do not pursue these cases themselves.

I still practise chiropractic and am a passionate advocate of chiropractic. This mess is not my doing and...
