"If we are to accept evidence for chiropractic efficacy we need a little more than stories. It is also worth pointing out that chiropractic treatment for anything that is not to do with muscles and bones is implausible in the extreme. Chiropractors believe they can cure many other things because the trade was founded on the idea that subluxations (chiropractors mysterious bodily malfunctions) were the cause of most (if not all) illness. Thus, by crunching bones you can clear subluxations and get the 'vital forces' moving again. Yes, chiropractic is founded on pre-scientific views of biology and medicine and thus any claims it makes must be subject to the highest forms of evidence." The Quackometer (11th November 2008)
