Canadians visit chiropractors about 30 million times a year, and surveys show that patients are generally satisfied with their treatment. But studies also show that as many as two hundred Canadians a year suffer strokes brought on by neck manipulation. Spin Doctors takes a hard, dramatic, and spine-chilling look into the world of chiropractic medicine. You will be surprised to learn what chiropractors treat and why and how much it costs you as a taxpayer. Most importantly, you'll learn how to protect yourself and your family from dangerous adjustments, practice-building tactics, bogus treatments, and misleading information.
From the Inside Flap
A spine-chilling look into the chiropractic industry. Learn how to protect yourself from practice-building tactics and bogus treatments.

The book suggests that a person with chronic lower back pain should talk to their doctor to see if Chiropractic work is right for them. The rotational lumbar-spine procedure that chiropractors use (which physical therapists, doctors of osteopathy, and physiatrists also can use if they call it a “manipulation” instead of an “adjustment”) is helpful and evidence based in the reduction of lower back pain, and this is the reason that Chiropractors exist in a legitimate sense. Chiropractors can give you this procedure, quickly, for cash, without accessing a medical system or insurance. Just don’t expect to be healed, and know that a few people die each year from procedures like this.
“There is no place for unscientific health care in the twenty-first century. Chiropractors should not be allowed to call themselves doctors.”
“We have to trust legislators to ensure that a government-approved profession that can bestow the title “doctor” is a valid science-based health care system. Chiropractic is not.”
“When anyone, anywhere, at any time has made the effort to penetrate the facade, what they find isn't a solid, coherent foundation, but a jumble of lies, misconceptions, and delusion.”
