?I feel i have morphed into something other than a normal, happy person
because of my profession (chiropractic). I hope kids in school read this site.? ?billogoods, 2011 Feb 8.
"As far as indoctrination, we all believe certain propaganda
and have each drunk our own respective Kool aid"
-Maximized Living Chiropractor Matthew B. Symons DC
Royal Palm Beach, FL 10/23/2010
"I would urge any student in school to take a long hard look at this (site)
and leave if you don't have a sure thing after graduating. (i.e.
inheriting a practice, family is an attorney or M.D. with instant referral source.)"
-bash75. Thread "life after the chiro crash".(click)
Chiropractic claim to extend lifespan disproven,
data shows opposite effect. (Click for link)
"Chiropractic absolutely thrives on the stupid, desperate, and misinformed.
My question is, what should the price for stupidity, desperation, or being misinformed be?
A lifetime of bad credit, a delayed future, and a horrible career choice?" -doctorSJ
Research Shows That Early Chiropractic Treatment Actually Harms Whiplash Patients
"After reading the "skeptical" viewpoints on this forum it has forced me to look
at this profession with a completely different point of view. I had always
had some questions about the validity of certain treatments and the effectiveness
of chiro manipulation in general. Its nice to see there are others with even stronger skepticism
and fierce anger at the profession. -enoughchiro4me, Logan graduate 2003
"I used to hate this board now I know it's true - I'm sorry but it truly is.
These people saved me my marriage and a life of struggling financially"
-Peteydazeuch, former DC student at Palmer College of Chiropractic
Studies show no advantage of chiropractic treatment over physical therapy
in the treatment of acute low back pain
"In the end, my education at National
is ironically what led me out of the chiropractic profession.
My passion was to help people and continually learn and grow,
not to rip people off and memorize a bunch of scripts." -misguided 7/12/06.
"I recently failed out of chiropractic college, yet
instead of feeling sad and dismayed I'm elated and on cloud nine." ?done

dochic: Len-get a grip. Get your head out of the chiro bubble and get a reality check. Fast. I have several friends from my graduating class that are on food stamps, medicaid and just struggling to find a job! Chiropractic profession is garbage. Jun 23, 2014 21:31:51 GMT -5
Chiropractic should be a crime: Just venting. . .I hate chiropractic. It is the most vicious profession out there. SO many good and smart people got sucked into it now living a sad existence. I feel like a Bernie Madoff victim becoming one. Jun 24, 2014 16:37:48 GMT -5
nmsdc: Sold PI/WC-whore practice, moved to new state, impossible to restart without scamming people with virtually useless treatments for imaginary conditions like all other DCs in this region of chiro-burned healthcare consumers. Jun 24, 2014 18:14:33 GMT -5

CR Guest: I have a friend who is debating about investing with ML. Seems like ML spews a lot of BS, but appears to make money. Any past investors on here with good/bad experiences? Did you feel cheated? Were you happy? Jun 25, 2014 9:02:32 GMT -5
Your Conscience: If scamming people doesn't bother you, ML sounds like a good fit. Jun 25, 2014 15:16:40 GMT -5
Successful DC = cheating DC: Chiropractic should be outlawed. . .like yesterday. I write my legislators to do just that. Jun 26, 2014 11:28:59 GMT -5
Successful DC = cheating DC: A nurse, a CNA, an EMT. . .all other healthcare workers make more money on average than a typical DC. Chiropractic is a joke! Look up student default rates of healthcare professions. It is an embarrassment & wake up call that chiropractic sucks! Jun 26, 2014 13:56:16 GMT -5

whatamistake: Nock.... we're not debating that cracking your back feels good or in your words "gets people better". The issue comes back to quack philosophy behind it, and it doesnt matter what the medical industry is doing because they get paid for it and chiros dont. Jun 30, 2014 12:41:32 GMT -5
