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."

Norah UK: improved. This is an incredible healing system and unless you have tried it and given it a full chance then really I dont think you can give a proper informed appraisal. I have found it life changing. I have been given my life back.

Norah UK: There are good and bad practitioners in all fields. I found a practice with 3 amazing practitioners. Osteopathy by comparison is brutal. This is very gentle and profoundly effective.Many things in life we do not understand. That doesn't mean they cant work

Successful DC = cheating DC: I read success stories, from patients, but the field as a whole is pathetic! The student default rate of chiropractic is evidence enough there is no demand for chiropractic. Adjustments may help, but are a tool anyone can learn.

Long Term Chrio Patient : Anyone that's critical of Jesse Jutowitz, has skeletons in his closet. I have had permanent improvement in my spinal condition where all other Chrio techniques did noting but provide temporary relief. I compare him to Galileo. Get with it!!!

thankful: I thank God that I found a chiropractor who had a wellness plan, and educational classes. As I was adjusted and taught, the ailments started disappearing. Chiropractic care is effective, and at a fraction of the cost of the health insurance system.

Dissappointed : I have been very disappointed in the quality of life I have been able to provide for my family. Other professions constantly embrace technology which allows them to better service their patients the chiropractor administers try to sell a sub luxation
Aug 15, 2014 10:56:16 GMT -5
Dissappointed : Subluxation 120 years and still searching. The reimbursement in chiropractic is minimal a person better served to obtain a degree in physical therapy state of texas degree physical therapy 28k.

Dissappointed : Physical therapy would of provided better results than your chiropractic adjustment its manipulation not adjustment another scam.

thankful: I'm glad that physical therapy helped you. My chiropractor helped me, too. I can now climb stairs, and arise from the floor without struggling or labored breathing. I can go for a walk, and have the strength to exercise. I was able to return to work.

howard: The 'crack' in a chiropractic adjustment represents a joint that was stuck (subluxation,) and is now moving. When it's stuck, it's irritating, and can lead to problems within the joint and nerves around it. Chiropractors correct those subluxations.

nmsdc: Subluxations, cracks, and nerve interference are nonsensical marketing strategies chiropractors use to rip off the worried well.

aches: I think if we were well, we would not be searching for a cure for the pain.
Aug 20, 2014 19:56:22 GMT -5
aches: "Worried well" ? If we were well, we wouldn't be looking for relief from neck and back pain.

charade: if you think a crack is going to help your condition then you are smoking crack! the only light at the end of the chiropractic tunnel is the train!!

charade: aches: you misunderstood nmsdc's statement. they rip off the worried very well. read slowly and carefully.
Aug 21, 2014 12:33:19 GMT -5
nmsdc: I mean "worried" well people, who are scared and then ripped off for months or years of "subluxation" treatment when a massage or some manual therapy would do.
