Why do the "sceptic" movement spread lies about chiropractors?
Could it have to do with their "expert" on the subject?

A lie from S Novella:

Chiropractor Breaks Baby’s Neck – A Risk vs Benefit Analysis

It is unfortunately that individual dramatic cases are often required to garner public and regulatory attention toward a clear problem. The Australian press is reporting:

The real story:

A CHIROPRACTOR has been cleared over claims a baby's neck was broken during a treatment.
An expert report undertaken by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, a federal body set up to replace state-based health regulators, quoted a radiologist who examined the four-month-old baby and found that there was "no evidence of fracture".
Fairfax newspapers reported claims by a Melbourne doctor who had cared for the baby last year that one of her vertebrae had been fractured during a chiropractic treatment for torticollis, which involves an abnormal head position because of a weakness in the spine.
The AHPRA report found that the child had congenital spondylolysis, a malformation of the spine, and the child's father had a similar condition. It concluded that "the treatment reported as provided would not be expected to produce sufficient force to cause a fracture to C1 or C2 vertabra in an infant".
"The loss of head control apparent after treatment could have been the result of unrelated factors," it said.

Is it because of their expert(Stephen Barrett) on the subject, and his background ?  :        

Steven Novella he who is behind the blogg SBM(Science based medicin) was "scientific advisor" for 

ACSH, but he was criticized for that because of ACSH fierce resistance against "Obamacare"(Affordable Care Act) ACA. Novella is not official connected to ACSH, but his propaganda is the same. Much of much of Novellas writings is such that benefits the insurance companies in the health sector, who are keen to minimize costs. 

  Novella shedding many of the old lies about chiropractic, which was fabricated by the AMA banned COMMITTEE.(See other articles on this blogg)

The purpose of this study is to identify any adverse effects to chiropractic care occurring in the pediatric patient and to evaluate the risk of complications arising in the pediatric patient resulting from chiropractic care.
A 3-year retrospective study of pediatric case files from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic (AECC) (Bournemouth, England) teaching clinic practice in Bournemouth, England. All files (n = 781) of pediatric patients younger than 3 years of age were selected manually in sequential order from current files stored in the AECC clinic presenting to the AECC clinic during a specific period. Most (73.5%) patients presenting were 12 weeks of age or younger (n = 574).
Six hundred ninety-seven children received a total of 5242 chiropractic treatments, with 85% of parents reporting an improvement. Seven parents reported an adverse effect. There was a reaction rate of approximately 1 child in 100, or one reaction reported for every 749 treatments. There were no serious complications resulting from chiropractic treatment (reactions lasting >24 hours or severe enough to require hospital care).
This study shows that for the population studied, chiropractic manipulation produced very few adverse effects and was a safe form of therapy in the treatment of patients in this age group.

Chiropractic or osteopathic manipulation for children in the United States: an analysis of data from the 2007 National Health Interview Survey.
Parker Research Institute, Dallas, TX, USA.
The aim of this study was to describe use of chiropractic and/or osteopathic manipulation by children in the United States along with the specific health conditions for which they sought care.
The study was a secondary data analysis of the National Health Interview Survey 2007, Child Alternative Medicine file as well as the Child Core Sample. National population estimates were generated for reported use of chiropractic or osteopathic manipulation (C/OM) by children for specific health conditions. Odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were generated from binary logistic regression models that assessed the likelihood that children of specific characteristics would use this therapy.
National estimates indicated that 2.3 million children (2.3%) in the United States had used C/OM in 2007. C/OM was the most common complementary and alternative medicine procedure. Children aged 12-18 years were more likely to have seen these providers than were younger age groups (OR=3.4 [95% CI, 2.1-5.5]). Homeopathy (1.2%), massage (1.0), and naturopathy (0.3%) were the next most common procedures. The most common complaints were back and neck pain. Other conditions for which children were seen included other musculoskeletal conditions, sinusitis, allergies, and nonmigraine headaches. Racial categories did not differ significantly regarding use of manipulation, but those children with both mother and father in the household were more likely to have used this form of care (OR=1.7 [95% CI, 1.1-2.6]).
C/OM is primarily used for back and neck pain, which is increasing in prevalence in children. Teens are more likely to use it than are younger children.
