Canadian Nurse Wants to Ban Chiropractors from Caring for Infants

Nurse Says there is Practically Zero Evidence for Chiropractic - Especially in Infants

In what has to be one of the most ridiculous anti-chiropractic and ignorant statements uttered since Wilk v. AMA, a nurse at the University of British Columbia stated in regards to chiropractic that:

"There's practically zero evidence of any benefits, particularly in infants"

The false statements were made in another chiropractic hit piece written by "journalist" Bethany Lindsay in CBC News. Lindsay has become well known for her disdain and ignorance of chiropractic leaving a trail of misinformation in her articles.

Garrett, a nurse who teaches at the University of British Columbia, went on to state that ". . . he'd like to see chiropractic for infants banned in B.C., as well as strict guidelines for treatment of other children."

Garrett fashions himself as an "expert" in alternative health care deception. CLICK HERE to see how the school even promotes him as a media expert on their website.

The article by Lindsay reviews the current status of the Witch Hunt going on in Canada against chiropractors who practice in a salutogenic model.

Some chiropractic regulatory boards in Canada have redefined evidence informed practice in such a way that virtually all chiropractic care beyond cracking backs for stuck joints is off limits. In fact, were the same guidelines applied to the medical profession, all health care would come to a grinding halt. That's how ridiculous this is.

According to the story 67 chiropractors have been brought under investigation following a "sweep" of websites using a scanning program that sweeps websites and social media for keywords the Board doesn't like.

Hello, George Orwell?

53 of the chiropractors caught up in the "sweep" ". . . have consented to reprimands, agreed to pay fines and signed undertakings promising to follow the rules from now on" according to Lindsay.

The good news is that another 13 have hired lawyers. One has yet to respond.

The events in Canada mirror what has already taken place in the United Kingdom and Australia and is part of a movement that includes organizations such as the American Chiropractic Association in the United States where leaders have called for the "elimination" of chiropractors who manage vertebral subluxation while they push for expansion of chiropractic scope to include drugs, injections and primary health care. 

Unfortunately, many chiropractic schools and organizations that align with conservative chiropractic have endorsed the ACA's agenda, CLICK HERE for more on that story.

The chiropractors, organizations and schools supporting these moves have made unlikely allies of the media.

None of it is based on the scientific evidence or the standards of care that actually support the management of vertebral subluxation in a salutogenic model.

One has to wonder how much of an expert Garrett is when he can't seem to find what is readily available to anyone.
