It’s seems an age since I’ve ranted about that other favourite ‘therapy’, chiropractic. I’ve put the word therapy in quotes, because in this context it means ‘completely bogus time-wasting, money-sucking, and potentially dangerous non-profession’.
I finally caught up with a recent episode of Catalyst, which did a lovely job of exposing the nonsense that is chiropractic. I’ve said it all before: for example here and here, but it’s always nice to have one’s own understanding re-affirmed by people who know what they are talking about.
Have a look at the episode – I particularly enjoyed the look of exasperation on the face of one of the neuro-surgeons as they ask him to explain what a chiropractor has just said about ‘static’ in the spinal chord – that happens at about 6:26 into the show.
