  Title Medicine has failed to grasp the principles explaining chiropractic’s international success [editorial]
Journal Asia-Pac Chiropr J. 2021 ;2(2):1-4
Peer Review No
Publication Type Editorial

Insecurity of political medicine has generated misrepresentation to the extent that it must be embarrassed to now find many medical practitioners adopting chiropractic concepts, and techniques, but also chiropractic practitioners providing care in government institutions like the US armed forced and general hospitals.

An astounding admission was presented at the US National Press Club in 2017 when the professor of Medicine at the New York University School of Medicine Dr Marc Siegal ‘outlined the scope of the opioid crisis, its history, and how chiropractors offer a key solution in the non-pharmacologic approaches to pain management, other MDs, PhDs, and directors for various pain-management and medical organizations followed suit.’

It must be humiliating for political medicine to find that in addition to these facts, more and more private practitioners are cooperating and collaborating with chiropractors. Others have adopted aspects of the chiropractic model, just as physiotherapists are now developing their limited form of spinal manipulation.

Chiropractic is a profession and far more than just refined manipulation, especially as it incorporates the influence of somatosensory neural physiology into spinal considerations. In essence medicine in Australia is out of touch and out of step with the developments of chiropractic internationally having been misled by self-serving and anti-competitive marketing.
