While chiropractic can provide quality treatment for certain types of back and neck pains and related problems, many health-industry professionals and patients are under the impression that the practice can be used as a method for restoring and maintaining overall health.

Inside Chiropractic is a clearly presented, practical guide that explores the facts and falsehoods of chiropractic from the view of a doctor with more than forty years of experience in the field-a noted authority on the safe use of chiropractic to treat physical pain. Dr. Samuel Homola unleashes a startling critique of the well-established belief that chiropractic can treat infection and disease.

Citing the shaky opinions and anecdotal evidence that support chiropractic treatments for a wide range of illnesses, Dr. Homola states, "Many chiropractors believe that correction of misaligned vertebrae can restore health and that regular spinal adjustments are essential for maintaining health. There is no definitive, scientific evidence to support such a theory."

Inside Chiropractic provides essential information to consumers, physicians, insurance carriers, and all concerned with the field on the origins of chiropractic, doctor education, choosing a good chiropractor, "sense and nonsense" in the practice, alternative healing, problems and questions that remain in chiropractic, and more.

An American author. There are several possible reasons for this book.
1. American chiropractors have less education and training.
2. This particular chiropractor never upgraded his education in training in the 43 years since he began.
3. He is too lazy to upgrade.
4. He has been losing patients, and so he wants to "get back at" more successful chiropractors.
5. He never has been a chiropractor, but is angry for some reason.
or 6. We really lucked out with our chiropractor, who never stops studying and improving and incorporating a broader view of health care.
Don't bother to read this unless you like to be tricked by lies.
