    Whether or not Chiropractors spend as much time in school as physicians is irrelevant, as the underlying theories of the field are psuedo-scientific.

    Just as recently as '96, Syracuse University was awarding Master's Degrees in Facilitated Communication. Should someone who has a Master's in FC be held in the same regard as a licensed therapist with a Master's in psychology? No. Which one is better for my autistic child, the one who gives a realistic, yet sad glimpse into his disease or the one who claims to discover worlds of untapped poetry and prose? An advanced degree from a reputable university does not a science make.

    Chiropractors are good at one thing, relieving back and neck pain. I went to one for the better part of a year after I was in a violent car crash and suffered whiplash. I have no lingering effects from the crash and occasionally go back because it feels good to get my back and neck cracked. But I wouldn't go to him if I had an asthma attack.

    Has a single chiropractor helped someone beat cancer, stave off pneumonia or awake from a coma? Nope. What about the common cold or a kidney infection? Nope. That's best left to real doctors.

    For what its worth, at least with respect to back pains, I've been told by a Physician that it's best to visit a chiropractor, real or quack, only once, when you first start noticing a chronic problem, and then spend the rest of your time going to a massage therapist.

    I've seen a chiropractor on two separate occasions, and both times they really helped me out big time. The most recent one was mentioned in my training blog in blogshido.

    Why would you go to a chiropractor when there are osteopaths and physiotheripists out there?

    The local sports injury doc goes to a chiro. And the chiro is the chiro for some of the teams at Utah State.

    Because they are "holistic" and "natural"? Who knows? People just want to believe that mainstream medicine is inherently evil, so they find any alternative viable.

    Anyone I've ever known who went to one felt great immediately afterwards, then about a week later was in just as much pain as before. That's made me think, that they are bogus.
