Chiropractors are not doctors.


Wife-B-Gone

They really aren't in any way. Chiropracty is literally all based on advice a ghost gave to a snake-oil salesman in 1895.

Serious question who are you supposed to get help for your back then? There are doctors who specialize in feet and hands, why not the back?


dandynasty

I'm a physical therapist and I'm crying from your comment. We have no one helping PR!


MichaelGaryScottTM

Orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons literally specialise in the back and spine. Also physiotherapists have a large pool of clinically proven knowledge. Occupational therapists for lifestyle changes, as most back problems are from our own doing.


SignedByMe-

Thank you for this. Saved your comment. I go to chiropractor because I was told that they can make my spine and back better. But it seems like they're only just cracking my back and not really "aligning it". Funny thing is nothing is wrong with my back .. just more preventative maintenance


ThirdInversion

chiropractic is a pseudoscience.


banana526

Run away. Fast. From a physical therapist.


tdwesbo

Get help from a doctor, and not a chiropractor.


2ndtryagain

The Doctors who specialize in feet and hands are actual MD's if you have severe back problems you can see a Neuromusculoskeletal also a MD. You GP can refer you to a Physical Therapist as well who can do wonders for your back. I would go to a Spa for massage long before a Chiroquacker.


blocksubreddits

Physical therapist in coordination with your family doctor.


Edify7

Physiotherapists. Most back injuries can be alleviated by the short term use of painkillers and carrying on as normal though. Inactivity usually causes more problems than the initial injury.


Re-AnImAt0r

My 5 spinal surgeries were performed by a neurosurgeon from the local hospital group's spine center.


icanhaslobotomy

Neurologist

My friend got in nasty bike accident when he was younger. Instead of parents taking him to a real medical doctor they took him to a chiropractor that made things significantly worse and caused permanent damage. 25 years later he is still in pain.


Riot419

And of course there’s no way to prove that the Chiropractor caused the damage.


blocksubreddits

They are up there with faith healers, multi level marketers, and supplement companies for pushing quack medicine.

Their name *is* the disclaimer for their product.

Ahhhhh. Like Doctor Rand Paul. Got it.


Chadwick_Steel

A chiropractor can give these out? Normally I'd say these people deserve whatever they get, but kids are involved.


2ndtryagain

In Florida they consider these Quacks equal to a MD it is pure bullshit.


yerawizardamberr

I worked in a middle school when COVID started and am now at an elementary school. The kids are so good about wearing their masks with hardly any complaints. It’s the parents who want to bitch about kids wearing masks. It’s so frustrating. None of us WANT to wear masks, but we do what we have to to keep our kids safe.


imrealbizzy2

Every one of my grandchildren wears a mask all day, from the minute they set foot on the property until they get in the car to go home. That's over seven hours, minus lunch and recess, and not one complains or forgets to mask up. And trust me, a couple are world class bellyachers, but never about their mask.


yerawizardamberr

Exactly. The kids have been so great about the whole thing.


id10t_you

Kooks who take horse paste going to chiropractor quacks to get their hall pass. Checks out.


gnewsha

Between this shit and the carotid dissections they simply do more harm than good and should be held to the same accountability standards as doctors. If you practice independently we should be able to sue you for actually harming society.


uptown_squirrel17

UGH. I’ve never seen people so ridiculous over something so simple.


angry_centipede

If someone could figure out the logistics, this would be a perfect opportunity to vaccinate them with a full-auto blow-dart gun.


icanhaslobotomy

I truly wish I had an award to give you


Musesoutloud

I know it's early in the morning and possibly the reason why your comment was so funny. But, the thought of seeing blow dart snipers on roofs has me cracking up.


seastars96

Fuck all of those parents


youremyfather

all for a piece of paper that means nothing


tntitanguy

I agree it shouldn’t come down to a doctors note. Every parent should make that choice


flyingfred1027

They can choose to home school. No one is taking that choice away from them.


olde_greg

Even still, go to an actual doctor rather than someone who cracks your joints for you.


outsourced_bob

There's a reason why they aren't going to an actual pediatrician for this...


sanosuke001

So you choosing not to wear a mask or not having your children wear masks affects everyone around you. Your actions will cause someone else to suffer the consequences. This is not about your individual rights, this is about the rights of everyone. If your actions infringe on the rights of others then your rights don't matter. People that think otherwise are ignorant and selfish.


tntitanguy

I chose for my kids to wear one, this is America and it was my decision is all I’m saying.


MaryShelley2000

ONLY IN LA😂


2ndtryagain

This is Florida not California


adobesubmarine

I thought they meant Louisiana. Moot point, wrong either way.


MaryShelley2000

Thanks for the geography lesson 😊


dutchpancakes

Good for them. Masks and especially forcing people to wear masks, it complete bull shit.


MichaelGaryScottTM

Why? Does a piece of cloth scare you?


dutchpancakes

That’s your comment, you think I’m scared? Has nothing to do about that and all to do with choice. It’s harmful for children and proven very ineffective for them and adults. See the side of the box.


MichaelGaryScottTM

>That’s your comment, you think I’m scared? You are. >Has nothing to do about that and all to do with choice. Not when your choices affect other's liberty. >It’s harmful for children No, it's 100% not. Guns are, though. >proven very ineffective for them and adults. No, completely fictional statement. >See the side of the box. I can, of the bulk packs we have for surgical use and have been using for over a hundred years.


mantis-tobaggan-md

you will only hear crickets after all fallacies have been laid


dutchpancakes

Guns are great for kids and they prevent more crime than they cause. We have plenty as do the kids!


psykologikal

People like you are why the rest of the world looks at the USA as a train station crash, everytime another train smashes in we say no way, that must be the last one, then we hear the whistle blow again. You have been brainwashed into believing that somehow Facebook knows better than the rest of the world, please do not reproduce.


dutchpancakes

People like me? You’re an idiot. Have you read the side of the box? “There is no significant reduction in transmission” is quote in plenty of scientific journals? Just google it dumbass. Thanks for chiming in though! Nothing I’ve said is incorrect.
