My wife and I are a good example of “opposites attract”.
She went to a chiropractor today and was spewing the pseudoscience bullshit that the guy told her about fixing her jaw pain.
I told her it’s the same as homeopathic therapy, those fake surgeries that remove tumors (without breaking skin), essential oils, snake oils, etc.
All Placebo effect.
Some good can be done. But that’s based on the massage and physical therapy part of the visit. Which are real medical professions IMO.
Joint cavitation is not the sound of a misaligned joint returning to its proper location. An actual joint dislocation would be a medical issue with obvious indications and treated at a real hospital.
I told her that I prove my case by the fact that real doctors do not ever perform such treatment because it is not real.
I have had some heated debates about this topic. I know that very intelligent, educated, reasonable people have been treated by chiropractors and felt better. So, that’s proof that it works. Yes. I admit it works.
I guess I’m just easily pissed off by the assumption that massage and physical therapy, done by the chiropractor, somehow validates all the other claims. Modern chiropractors have had to back off a lot from their original beliefs because most people will call bullshit on the old version.
I was just looking at a Sachs on eBay.de last night for 100€ and instead of adding that to my garage, my wife had some guy push on her face.
Sometimes my jaw clicks. I got punched in the chin once and the clicking stopped for a couple days. Maybe I could charge people to jack their jaw and tell them to come back every two days?
What do y’all think? I love MA opinions. So honest and raw. I’m not trying to stop her if she really does feel better. That is what’s most important (real or not). This question is just for my sake.
