    I believe you. In re not finding Janzen, this forum is about a serious medical issue. Most parents have no way or sorting medicine from woo-woo. That's why there is no chiro on here or if there...

    I think if he limits his posts to how his kids are doing, stops discussing other patients, and completely drops the mystery as to what the chiros are doing, it might be okay. It is important not to...

    Linda okay. I think unless he can prove he isnt a chiro, I think the best way forward is to remove all his posts and threads. Chiros do not belong on this forum.

    Dustin76, excellent post. Really nice. As a PT you are trained in a science. Chiro is not a science. I will respond to some of your points on your other thread.

    ps. Chiros have no training in bracing. I don't know why that is allowed. Their training is in chiro subluxations of the spine which have been shown to be imaginary.

    Hi EL-34.

    I think only a surgeon can answer your questions. If necessary, get more than one opinion.
