Anti-vaccine chiropractors 19

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]

Messrs Bill Logan and Pete Snodgrass practice their business in Adelaide. They have a Facebook page, Dr Pete and Dr Bill Chiropractic; and a website, which I think is also called Dr Pete and Dr Bill Chiropractic, although the business appears to be Logan Chiro. Who knows. I don’t. Logan is a member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia, and features on the above business website; whilst Snodgrass appears to have made his own association, as founder and president of World Chiropractic Alliance Australasia (the URL goes nowhere). It was harder than usual to find his name anyway. The Yellow Pages listing which cites Snodgrass as a member of the CAA also goes nowhere, as does Snodgrass’ own website.

They take it to the streets of Adelaide, working their magic on babies. This photo was taken today, by a friend:

I wish they'd unhand the babies.

I wish they’d unhand the babies.

Anyway, as this series is about examples of anti-vaccinationism as practiced by chiropractors, have some lies from the Healthy Home Economist, no less:

Logan 1 polio SV40 HHE postYes, it’s one of the latest anti-vaccine lies which are circulating the internet of late. I addressed it in # 16. Here is the easily searchable SV-40 information, somehow hidden from us all.

So, when Pete and Bill state:

It pays everyone to read stories like these before making decisions on vaccinations…. I recommend that we don’t be sheep… Think, research and think again….

What Pete and Bill really mean is, “believe any old anti-vaccination lie you read on the internet, and share it to your customers as if it is the truth”.

All yours, CBA.

About reasonable hank

I'm reasonable, mostly.

    OK, so we have the Chiropractors now in shopping centers, touting for business and giving advice to shoppers.

    Next they will outside Toy stores as they target the baby market.

    I bet they offer no risk benefit information to the unwary shoppers, after all with no adverse events register how could they?

      This must be a real phenomenon, because the AHPRA Chiro Board Code of Conduct has a specific section for it:
      Appendix 1
      Guideline in relation to Public Spinal Screening
      The aim of this guideline is to assist chiropractors in performing public spinal screening in a safe and responsible manner.
      In this appendix ‘public spinal screening’ means any activity that involves a chiropractor offering a service that is aimed at assessing the spine of another party. In the context of this appendix this will pertain to activities that occur in a public place.”

      I haven’t looked at the other AHPRA professions but I don;t recall seeing such a statement in the other codes.
