“The chiropractic vertebral subluxation theory has confused the definition of the word ‘subluxation’; a common medical term. Unlike the mysterious, undetectable chiropractic ‘vertebral subluxation complex’ alleged to be a cause of disease, a real vertebral subluxation can be a cause of mechanical and neuromusculoskeletal symptoms, but has never been shown to be a cause of organic disease…Until chiropractic schools and associations draw a line, and take a stand on the side of science as a properly limited specialty, uniformly defining and limiting chiropractic in state laws, the credibility and the status of chiropractors will remain low. Physicians will continue to refer their patients to physical therapists, physiatrists and orthopaedic surgeons rather than risk a bad outcome with inappropriate treatment provided by a chiropractor.” Samuel Homola, DC, Focus on Alternative and Complementary Therapies (December 2010)
