Anti-vaccine chiropractors 7

The Chiropractic Board of Australia has had enough:

“We will not tolerate registered chiropractors giving misleading or unbalanced advice to patients, or providing advice or care that is not in the patient’s best interests,” chairman Phillip Donato said.

Dr Donato said chiropractors should only provide evidence-based treatment and anyone with concerns should report them. [Sydney Morning Herald August 9 2013]

The star of today’s episode is Total Lifestyle Chiropractic. They have many locations, with many businesses to manage throughout Queensland and NSW. Links on the professional page suggest that Total Lifestyle Chiropractic’s people are members of both the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia, and the Australian Spinal Research Foundation. We have met Total Lifestyle Chiropractic before in this post, the first of this unfortunate series.

The Total Lifestyle Chiropractic Facebook page has only been open since the beginning of the year. It is illuminating.

    Almost every article about autism and vaccines printed in the mainstream media states that all studies have shown that there is NO link between vaccines and autism.

      You are correct. Unfortunately there is a time link because Autism begins to show symptoms about the same time a baby starts to receive their vaccinations. That is the only link. The anti vaccine people can and don’t attempt to explain why some UNVACCINATED children also develop autism syndrome.

    Every article and study about vaccines ever conducted and reviewed for quality and factual content has repeatedly proved that vaccines do not cause, influence, cause a preponderance to or even give a nod to autism. Said studies and articles have been repeatedly printed, but the antivaxers ignore the hell out of the written word in favor of the whispered word or the online word of narrow minded and highly targeted choice. A choice that avoids peer review, fact checking, factual content or non-criminal and fraudulent activity that cost a star physician his license.

    Named such by my men, as operations I’ve been personally involved in worked, even when things went south, “by magic”. Hence, I’m a wizard.
    Or I know how to bloody well think… 🙂

    My wife went to a chiropractor once, and I crashed my car later that same day. I asked my wife about her experience at the chiro and she said the office contained furniture made from chipboard (which releases constantly formaldehyde into the enclosed office airspace) covered in melamine (which is short for melamine formaldehyde). Formaldehyde? Really… Frankly, I was shocked at that practice’s cavalier attitude to its customers health and I hope no other chiropractors would force their customers to inhale such a noxious cocktail at their practices.

    This account, by an intelligent, observant adult can surely not be discounted.

    I think we need a study to disprove the connection between chiropractic treatment and spousal accidents and I have to wonder why this research is NOT being carried out. What have they got to hide?

  4. I don’t know if you can listen to this from outside Australia but this is a fantastic interview with the chair of the Chiropractic Board on this and other issues:

    Total takedown!

    The misleading report by Wakefield et al, on twelve children referred by lawyers, caused a huge diversion in the research direction on ASDs – until the purported causation was de-bunked. The research now seems to be back on track.

      @Sue, gotta remember to use that one, “(born at an early age)”. 🙂

      As for Wakefield et al, may all of their research line the parakeet cages of the world, for that is the entire worth of it. Thankfully, save for some modest politically motivated “research”, the real research has moved back on track.

      Boot note, working on getting my RN daughter to go for either nurse practitioner or nurse anesthetist.

      Well, on to helping my aged father deal with the world for the day. ESRD, CHF and now, vascular dementia. All largely due to his ignoring his medical condition while I was deployed for five years.
      Every day, I lose a bit more of a treasure, a link to the past. 🙁

        Thanks, but I can’t claim credit.

        “I must admit, I was born at an early age” is credited to Groucho Marx, but it was adapted by the Goons into “I was born at an early age, once in 1936 and again in 1942”. (Not sure about the actual years, but you get the idea.)

        The more I ”mature”, the more useful that line gets!
