Bullshit quack chiropractor on the loose!

Today, I told my family how my wrist has been hurting for almost a week. My aunt’s chiropractor boyfriend then decided he could help by suddenly pulling my hand as hard as he could. Not only did my wrist pop and cause me more pain, but my shoulder got dislocated. FML

Chiropractary isn't a real discipline, and practitioners aren't medically certified, or in many cases, even vaguely trained.

Some of them can actually help by stretching joints and stuff, but the kind of guy who'd just grab someone's injured arm and pull sounds like the sort of retard who'd break someone's neck by accident.

Idiots like that would be sued for malpractice and lose their medical licence, if they tried to practice an actual respectable discipline.

'fortunately' chiropractary is a joke and they never had medical licences to begin with.

Make sure he knows that if he ever touches you again, you'll have him arrested for assault, and advise everyone you know to avoid his practice.

They could, but since they're not real doctors, they don't have real malpractice insurance.

Any settlement you'd get would probably be free "adjustments" for life, or whatever they're calling their bullshit these days.

Maybe you should masturbate with your other
Hand. Your aunt chiropractor boyfriend should pay the bill for your hospital visit. I’m not a chiropractor but I at least know not to pull on your wrist/arm.

Note sure where you're located, but in Canada chiropractors are regulated, and are designated to use the title “doctor” similar to physicians, optometrists and dentists after completing the extensive Doctor of Chiropractic degree program.
I'll admit to having met a few chiropractors who will never, ever, be allowed to touch me again.
But good chiros are the only reason I can still function on a daily basis. I've been seeing my current chiro for over a decade, and he's freaking awesome. He's found issues on a couple of my scans & x-rays that my GP at the time "didn't think were important enough to mention" - including a dislocated bone.

Chiropractors are licensed doctors whom go through a MINIMUM of 6 years of schooling with multiple board exams. They attain equivalent class hours as an MD in similar class types (minus pharmacology and plus spinal anatomy). Do some research my friend before stating your opinion as if it’s fact. Also, chiropractory isn’t a thing... the title is chiropractor, chiropractors, or doctor of chiropractic.
