I am a chiropractor. Is chiropractic medicine bullshit, science or both? No holds barred, AMA.
An inquiring look at one of the most popular and controversial alternative medicines. EDIT: proof submitted, awaiting verification. EDIT 2: Verified. Mod should post something anytime to confirm. Some good questions, and some trolls; par for the course. Keep em coming! EDIT 3: It's 3:25am and I'm heading to bed. I'll answer what I missed tomorrow, but I hope some of you gained some insight on some of the practices of chiropractors and the rationale behind some of the approaches. EDIT 4: 10:25AM Sunday morning (EST). Back to answering a some more questions. I'm ignoring some of the more trolling ones but I'll do my best to answer the genuine ones! EDIT 5: It's been a blast. Almost a 24hr (with breaks) AMA. Thanks for the honest questions and as always, science will have the final say. Last thought: If chiropractic really was bullshit, why would the world's best athletes in all the professional leagues (NHL, NBA, MLB, NFL) have chiropractors on the medical staff as well chiropractors being a permanent fixture (as of 2012) as part of the medical staff at the Olympics? Manual medicine is legitimate and valid option for muscle and joint pain. Cheers redditors!
