Nasal Specific Technique is a bizarre treatment in which a finger cot is inflated inside the patient's nose with the intention of moving a bone inside the head. But the Texas board states that it "appears to be a correction of the cranial bones and, as such, appears to meet the criteria of being within the scope of practice of a Texas licensed chiropractor," provided that the licensee is "properly trained" to do it. Scope of practice regarding Nasal Specific and Nasal Lavage. Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners, Jan 15, 2001]
He correctly points out the absolute idiocy of the Texas chiropractic board when they refer to "nasal specific technique"..... " the Texas board states that it "appears to be a correction of the cranial bones and, as such, appears to meet the criteria of being within the scope of practice of a Texas licensed chiropractor," provided that the licensee is "properly trained" to do it."
So once again, chiropractic knuckleheads, in "leadership positions", approve another bizarre technique based on ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER.
Brought to you by the same chiropractic board sworn to protect the public.
Yep. All quacks, according to these state boards, must be "properly trained" quacks......we can't have any loose cannon quacks running around doing things their own way.....at least there are guys out there like Dr Perle who put their foot down and send people to their state boards...though, of course, there's hardly a distinction between a state board quack and a run-of-the-mill quack.
However, Dr. Slaughter said "that the Board of Chiropractic Examiners in the state of Texas does absolutely nothing to police this profession." According to Dr. Slaughter, the board is supposed to "protect the public from any practitioner who is not doing the right thing.
"If you talk to 100 chiropractors in the state of Texas, they will all bad-mouth our board," he added. "We should not have any chiropractors in the state who are practicing unscientifically and we've got plenty of them. We should have no chiropractors in the state who are advertising unethically and we've got plenty of them. We have all kinds of fraudulent advertising and the board does absolutely nothing about it."

dwight: So i'm newly joined and have a query about a few happenings in which my lower back would extend and my actual maximum height would increase from 3-6 inches. After 2(3?) x-rays it was confirmed that i have mild scoliosis and extraordinary back muscle.

dwight: I dont know how else to explain what is happening to me but I was advised to get an MRI more than once in order to further dive into the cause or cure for my situation

dwight: is it possible for something like that to happen? if so, will it become a permanent issue? if not, how can i go about resolving that?

GoodGolly: I've never seem so much self loathing and inadequacy... What a load of crap. There are MANY DCs who are not subluxation based and THRIVING. Put on your big-girl panties and quit whining.

GoodGolly: There are problems with our educational processes and unscrupulous docs, but the same can be said for every profession. Your attempts here to disparage an ENTIRE profession say more about you than that profession. Grow up, grow a pair and get to work.

Tim Whatley: The zealotry of Dr. Botnick paints a picture of a bitter, failed man. It's probably time for him to move on with his life.

Getreal TIM: Hey Tim, Dr Botnick is trying to actually educate current and future DC's about reality, not the fiction world of subluxations and chiropractic. I appreciate this site greatly and it has provided a lot of good resources, as well as a form of therapy.

Clunderthoud: Chiropractic certainly does work no matter what the theory, it just sucks as a career.

Clunderthoud: I now do chiropractic, VOM, and PEMF on horses and dogs after 20 dead-end years in DC practice. Did you know that many successful "horse chiropractors" are ropers, horse-shoers (farriers) cowboys, and journeymen with no DC degree at all?

mtmon: Indeed, education these days is, more often than not, overpriced. Chiros seem to have it better than attorneys tho'. youtube: 'law student(s)"= endless stream of "What did I get myself into?" I wouldn't get into ANY health field in today's times.
