A hate-group that call themselves "sceptics"spread the lie over internet, that an australian chiropractor
had broken a babies neck, Here is the truth:

Chiropractor cleared in Parliament
Dear Ryan,

AHPRA documents clearing a Chiropractor of an alleged neck ‘break’ were tabled in Queensland Parliament last night.

Please see the following extract from Hansard:

Mrs Jo-Anne Miller, Shadow Minister for Health, Queensland Parliament

“AHPRA did indeed properly investigate this matter, and I table the independent expert report received by AHPRA, along with the consulting radiologist’s report and a CD containing copies of the MRI, CT Scans and x-rays taken of the child.

I now quote from the radiologist diagnosis – 

“CONCLUSION: No evidence of fracture. The appearance of pedicles at C2 is consistent with bilateral spondylosis.”

In plain terms the child suffered from a congenital condition which prevents the spine hardening in the normal way.

The symptoms of this condition can be confused with what is known as hangman’s fracture, but the radiologist report right from the beginning of this matter made it clear there was no fracture. The child’s father had a similar condition.

The Chiropractor did not and could not have broken the child’s neck because there never was a broken neck to begin with.

There are clear lessons here about the need for effective communications between health practitioners from different health professions treating the same patient.”

To see the statement in Parliament in full, go to p 3386 of http://www.parliament.qld.gov.au/documents/hansard/2013/2013_10_16_DAILY.pdf

  2. Here is AHPRAs report summary: First a quote from the report:
    "The forces expected with the treatment described by Dr xxxxxx.would not create more force on the upper cervical spine than dressing and undressing the infant."

    1. Dr X did not allocate sufficient space to record paediatric case history details in clinical form.
    2. Dr X failed to conduct and record a systems review as part of paediatric case history.
    3. Dr X did not record adequate progress treatment notes which clearly document subjective reported information, objective findings, treatment provided, post treatment examination findings and recommendations given to the patient.
    4. Dr X failed to include assessment of muscle stretch reflexes, scapulohumeral reflex, pupillary reflexes and pull to sitting test as part of her standard infant examination.
    5. Dr did not record physical examination findings which support her diagnosis.
    6. Dr failed to perform a re-examination findings when her patient's presentation worsened.

    7. Dr X responded rapidly and appropriately when notified of concerns regarding . - . head control.

    8. Dr X 's decision not to x-ray was appropriate.

    9. The treatment reported as provided by Dr X would not be expected to produce sufficient force to cause a fracture to Cl or C2 vertebra in an infant.

    10. The loss of head control apparent with two days after treatment by Dr X and could have been the result of unrelated factors.

    What is AHPRA? Read the facts:

  3. Skeptikerna fortsätter att sprida lögner om kiropraktik. En av VoF forumets moderatorer skrev ett inlägg dagen efter jag lade ut en länk till AHPRAs rapport:

    Där han fortsätter att sprida lögner om kiropraktik. Varför?

  4. ACSH is an important part of the sceptical movement:




    ACSH lobbyists in the skeptic movement fooling the poor skeptics to spread ACSHs advertising by claiming that it is SCIENCE.
