What are our patients saying..?

 

 

Well if you could imagine their use to be a whole lot Australians could say about their healthcare, but under the national law we have been told to remove all testimonials as they breach section 133(1)(c) of the National Law.

However, TV, big business and multinational drug companies are free to say what they like on TV.

So as of 29 Sept 2015 it has all been removed.

Sorry your government it totally committed in you knowing nothing about anything to do with your health unless thru TV ads that are allowed to say what they like, one day I hope to you all who suffer and get worse to let your doctors tell you what we think is best for you, but till then, your government supports Archie Cochrane a Pom who invented Evidence based Practice in 1972 in a theoretical book he wrote about science and measurement, he now makes a billion dollars selling his principles to governments. sadly costs in every thing evidence based has gone thru the roof, all old treatments have been struck off, only proven science tested we can have and each area of health now evidence based is increasing costs in ailments, back pain has got worse, headaches a worse, and universities now charge millions to clients to do it Cochrane’s ways. One hundred years ago we had Positivists today we have Cochran’s for EBP. The one true beneficiary to EBP is drug sales for each area he is in has skyrocketed. Conversely Switzerland, China, Central Europe and India have moved quickly away to patient centred outcomes, more will come.

Terms used in Chiropractic from historic to present:

WHO guidelines on basic training and safety in chiropractic 2005:

1 Spinal manipulative therapy

Includes all procedures where the hands or mechanical devices are used to mobilize, adjust, manipulate, apply traction, massage, stimulate or otherwise influence the spine and paraspinal tissues with the aim of influencing the patient’s health.

2 Subluxation. 

A lesion or dysfunction in a joint or motion segment in which alignment, movement integrity and/or physiological function are altered, although contact between joint surfaces remains intact. It is essentially a functional entity, which may influence biomechanical and neural integrity.This definition is different from the current medical definition, in which subluxation is a significant structural displacement, and therefore visible on static imaging studies.

3 Subluxation complex (vertebral)

A theoretical model and description of the motion segment dysfunction, which incorporates the interaction of pathological changes in nerve, muscle, ligamentous, vascular and connective tissue.

As a health care service, chiropractic offers a conservative management approach and, although it requires skilled practitioners, it does not always need auxiliary staff and therefore generates minimal add‐on costs. Therefore, one of the benefits of chiropractic may be that it offers potential for cost‐effective management of neuromusculoskeletal disorders (1, 2, 3).
