The other day I found a book about Chiropractors at a thrift store and I was shocked to about what the book said. In this book Chiropractors claim they can treat mental illness, how in the hell does cracking someones back "cure" them of mental illness? --Rationalzombie94 (talk) 15:28, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Well, if their painful back was causing them mental anguish, I guess. (talk) 19:03, 4 April 2015 (UTC)
Just for fun read the history of chiropractic- it's intriguing how Palmer obtained his "insight" into the cause of ALL disease after horsing around with a guy and apparently, restoring this person's hearing after hitting him in the head and twisting his neck. One observation, a failure to consider all possibilities and instantly generalized into a system! Just as intriguing- Palmer thought of chiropractic as a religion in some ways... let's see, a novel event, jumping to conclusions, a generalized world view... religion... hmmm...

I have been to a Chiropractor a few times for back pain last year (Considering that was the only thing my insurance would pay for) and at first I felt great because I was hunched over and I had a hard time moving my back but the pain returned afterwards. So all in all, it was a waste of time and I would not recommend it. Hell I would rather go to a Naturopathic "Physician" than a Chiropractor for medical problems and that is not saying much as they are almost as bad as Chiropractors. --Rationalzombie94 (talk) 14:30, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
