Why Doctors Hate Chiropractors: "- Sent using Google Toolbar"
I've worked in harmony with many medical doctors. There is still much misinformation in the medial field about chiropractic and how it helps people. I don't like the back pain box because I know what I do does more than that. Chiropractors need to be thoroughly versed in neurology because that in fact is what chiropractic is. And they need to be able to explain what they do in medical terms if they want medical referrals. Research has improved vastly in the last 10 years but lags very much behind. This is the key to mutual cooperation. I also believe that the younger MDs are more willing to go CAM than their older counterparts.
Most doctors don't hate chiropractors. First they don't know what it is. Secondly they don't know any chiropractors to refer to. The time is ripe for education! The patients are tired of pills and surgery. They're tired of being told "you just have to live with it" or "no one really knows why you're in pain". We have the answers and the world needs to know.
