I've always been skeptical about chiropractors, you know, mostly because of that persistent "chiropractors are quacks" rumor. So even though I've had some back-breaking aches in my day, I've never gone that particular pain management route. Just because I figured it wouldn't do anything to help.
Forget helping -- as it turns out, going to the chiropractor can actually HURT.
According to a recent study, most of the "randomized clinical trials" done on chiropractic treatments "failed to report any adverse effects."
Meaning, all of the randomized clinical patients who went crawling out of their chiropractor's office feeling worse than when they went in? The researchers just didn't bother mentioning those guys.
Uh, yikes!?!? That's pretty scary. But that's not even the scariest part ...
