5 Things You’re Not Supposed To Know About Chiropractors
An absolutely excellent article detailing five top secrets that the public is not supposed to know about chiropractic was published in the December 2008 PH&W Magazine. Sacramento chiropractor, Dr. Jeri Anderson recently came across a copy of this article on the web: “I couldn’t have said it better, the author of this article is right on target. Most people have no idea of the truths uncovered on this excellent piece by PH&W Magazine. Hats off to them for doing their research and telling the truth!”
Here are the Top Secret 5 Things You’re Not Supposed To Know About Chiropractors :
- Chiropractic education is equal to medical education, and might be better in some areas.
- Chiropractors primary care doctors that do more than crunch backs and necks.
- Chiropractic is safe.
- Chiropractors took the AMA to court twice, and won.
- Medical doctors and chiropractors are working together
What the public rarely hears is how many lives are saved by chiropractors every year. Media covers sensational stories that often are rare events or truths half told. After all, people more likely to watch a house burning down versus a house being built. The truth is that day in and day out chiropractors identify health problems in their patients that at the very least are robbing them of the quality of their lives, and at the very worst have the potential to kill them.
Sacramento chiropractor, Dr. Jeri Anderson of Capitol Chiropractic relates: “ After performing routine examinations, I have sent some of my patients to hospital emergency rooms for aortic aneurysms, brain tumors, blood clots and many other immediate life threatening conditions. I have also uncovered many different types of cancers when caring for my patients and have assisted them in gaining early diagnosis and treatment for those serious conditions thereby improving their likelihood of survival. ”
The Sacramento chiropractor continues, “Chiropractic care has the potential to allow a body to function optimally. I often wonder after uncovering serious health problems in my patients, if chiropractic care years before would have eliminated these problems in the first place. I know that as a Sacramento chiropractor, my life is dedicated to improving the lives of others and preventing dis-ease.”
Finally, with respect to chiropractic education vs. medical education, here is an astonishing fact: In a basic test designed by orthopedic residency professors to test the knowledge of medical residents, 82% of medical school graduates failed the examination. Four years later the test was simplified and, once again, 78% of the examinees failed to demonstrate basic competency in musculoskeletal medicine. When this test was given to final quarter chiropractic students 70% of them passed the same exam!
After reviewing this information, you must ask yourself: Who do you wish to see for your spinal health?
