Anyone going to Parker in February they ask. How can this seminar change my practice and my life?!? Why am I the outcast, the non- believer when I dont want to go let alone afford to go or want to go a trip and waste it listening to chiro BS when I could be outside at the pool. I have no pride. It works for them they believe it. I dont get nor will ever change to accept it as tough as things are.
The largest practice-building firm is the Parker Chiropractic Research Foundation, founded by the late James W. Parker, D.C. A 1987 brochure for its Parker School of Professional Success Seminar claimed that "over 125,000 Doctors of Chiropractic, spouses and staff assistants worldwide-over two thirds of all practicing chiropractors-have attended nearly 300 Seminars more than 400,000 times. . . . Resulting in millions and millions of additional patients being served. . . . And surely resulting in at least a billion dollars of EXTRA CHIROPRACTIC EARNINGS!" Attendees receive a diploma for completing "the prescribed course of study at the Parker Chiropractic Research Seminar." In 1989, the fee for first-time chiropractors was $389 for the four-day course plus a gold-lettered plaque indicating membership in Parker Chiropractic Research Foundation.
"The real problem (isn't chiropractic but rather) society's tolerance of disproven theory, unsubstantiated claims and unethical professions."
My husband and I both had a fabulous weekend together in Vegas in 2009 and had a blast! We could never afford to ever go again. Go figure! The only difference from it and MLM retreats is my DC got some CE credits in one block! If I knew then what I know now I would have a lot more questions for Fabio and Pat Gentempo who I had no idea who they were at the time but spoke with them intimately. My husband the DC ended up in the Colorado mountains with Troy and Pat because we bought the 5 tech sub station that weekend!!!!! Along with $hitty software. I hate software. I took almost 2 years to pick one and still picked wrong!!!
nmsdc: In fact did not fail; collected <$2M in 11 years. Paid off >$125k in student loans. Came to realisation (facts) that chiro is pseudoscience, that it is legislated quackery that wastes everyones time and money. DCs scammed my mother and sister, too.

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.

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.

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.

metasin: So I was looking for chiro forums and found this site. So this is where failed chiros come to cry?

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?

Your Conscience: If scamming people doesn't bother you, ML sounds like a good fit.

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!

nock: If chiropractic is such a failure...then why do people feel get better? Its not like the medical industry is setting the world on fire. Diabetes has gone up over 40% and all the leading killers are preventable diseases.

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.

nmsdc: Nock, those are irrelevant appeal logical fallacies. Chiropractic is legislated quackery. Chiropractic is pseudoscience. Subluxation is fictitious, like astrology.

austinholisticdr: As a Chiropractor I simply take the pressure of the nerves and allow the body to heal naturally from within, using my hands.

person: I have had a few concussions, car accidents, played football over a decade ago...and I can say that I was a skeptic of chiropractic until I was adjusted. I had never been to a chiropractor until I got the job as representing a clinic. I had cysts that...

person: ...doctors couldn't help me get rid of through surgeries and medicine. They always came back. After 7 or 8 adjustments, the cysts have literally gone away. No site of them, and some of these had been there for a solid year....

person: One cyst in particular was around my belly button and it was releasing puss very frequently. I went to a general doctor, urologist, and a couple of general surgeons and they seriously could not figure out the cause even after my $550 CT scan....

person: Take it or leave it, but I feel like a new and healthier person for the first time in forever. No stress, more energy, and no more pain. Not to mention the hit and run accident I was a victim of while on my bicycle (hit by a speeding truck)....

person: I went to Stanford Medical for my facial reconstructive surgery after sliding 20+ feet on my face with my body in a scorpion position and not once did they take an x-ray of my spine to see if there was any damage. Turns out there was a hell of a lot of it!
