It is not my opinion. It is a reply to a poster that recommended looking for 'doctor' who works according to the latest scientific evidence.
I don't think it is a coincidence that you try to shut me up, because you proofed to be one of the people to highly recommend a chiropractor, and probably belief in their capabilities.
I simply was wondering why people want to see a chiropractor, and therefore did some research. The same thing I do with a lot of subjects that get my interest.
What a surprise it was, when it turned out that chiropractic is a highly, disputed treatment based on pseudoscience.
I think the original poster has the right to know, what kind of risk he takes.
No I think I have the plight to inform him properly, and you should too!
By the way, not so long ago in the UK the chiropractor associacion dropped charges against Simon Singh who in an article wrote that there is lack of evidence for the claim of some chiropractors made on treating certain childhood conditions such as colic and asthma. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/8621880.stm
Your statement that "There clearly exists scientific studies supporting benefits of chiropractic care.", you simply can not proof. Or do you refer to that report that states that chiropractor listen better and give more attention to their clients compared to regular doctors/physiotherapists?
the question at hand is a recommendation of a chiropractor, not a discussion of your opinion of others health care choices. I suggest you keep such discussion and judgements to the news and views section.
There clearly exists scientific studies supporting benefits of chiropractic care. There clearly exists scientific studies discrediting any benefits of chiropractice care as well, in the end it the original poster asks to for a recommendation for a provider, not your lay opinion of her choices. That should remain the topic of the thread.
