Excerpts: We need our research and academic community to step up and aid chiropractors in clinical practices that don’t understand how to share their valuable information in publications. There really doesn’t have to be a schism between clinicians and researchers but this will continue if we keep our eyes closed ... there are powerful factions in our chiropractic research and academic communities that are seeking to eliminate our chiropractic technique systems.
Attempts are being made to actively eliminate from our repertoire treatments of whole body kinematics, non-musculoskeletal presentations, neurological interrelationships, cranial spinal af-fects, visceral dysfunction, etc. Witness the clamour of the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) and our research agencies to let everyone know how chiropractic has no effect on the immune system. I am not saying we can cure patients of COVID-19, but it is clear that at least with a subset of patients we can do things to improve their immune response.
