This is the 120th anniversary of Chiropractic care, and half of all American adults have been to a Chiropractor. In this episode, you'll learn:
--The results of the first annual poll on Chiropractic from Gallup, which show the highest satisfaction rate of any health care professional among those who have actually had Chiropractic care.
--How Chiropractors have the lowest malpractice insurance rates of any health care professional (including nurses, medical assistance, and dental assistants) because of the safety of Chiropractic care.
--How the American Medical Association attempted to discredit Chiropractic care and how the case went all the way to the Supreme Court in 1987.
--How the "study" connecting strokes to Chiropractic neck adjustments did not include a single case in which the so-called Chiropractic adjustments were performed by an actual Chiropractor! And why there is a higher stroke risk in going to a hairdresser.
--The differences and similarities in the schooling of Chiropractors and Medical Doctors.
--How there are 400 different systems of Chiropractic adjusting. And why Dr. Prather uses a system of gentle adjustment within the range of motion and without the cracking or popping sound.
--How Dr. Prather uses light and gentle reflex adjustments for Osteoporosis patients and post-surgical patients.
--Why the upper-cervical area below the skull is considered both the most important adjustment and the most difficult adjustment. And how people come from all over the world to get the Atlas Orthogonal adjustment from Dr. Prather (including patients from a cancer doctor in New York City).
--How the Affordable Health Care Act (a.k.a. "ObamaCare") treats Chiropractic care and why Dr. Prather likes that provision.
