Last night, ABC TV aired an episode of Catalyst dealing with the chiropractic profession's push to become the first port of call for family medical advice, especially paediatric treatment, despite the fact a seemingly large chunk of the profession don't understand or agree with basic medicine.
It was scary. Very scary.
But there was a highlight.
Go here to see a spinal surgeon's thoughts on the chiropractic model of health and well-being. He sums it up better than I could, and with the benefit of genuine experience.
You can see the whole Catalyst segment on Paul Gallagher's Youtube channel.
From this story, chiropractic looks like just one more area of the health sector where the regulators are essentially useless.
Catalyst's Facebook page is alive with commentary from people who are horrified that a science show would dare to look at this issue using evidence as the basis for the report.
