    A baby’s neck has been broken by a chiropractor in an incident doctors say shows the profession should stop treating children.

    The last word was redundant in that sentence.

    And doctors should stop treating anyone anywhere because of Shipman.

    ”Another few millimetres and there would have been a devastating spinal cord injury and the baby would have either died or had severe neurological impairment with quadriplegia,” he said.

    Seems a pretty exact diagnosis to be able to make based on a ‘what if?’ scenario.

    free spam for all

    oooh thanks for pasting the text from the article in the link because some of us are too stoopid to click on links. I will now refrain from travelling to the other side of the world to receive treatment from dodgy chiropracters

    A baby’s neck has been broken by a chiropractor in an incident doctors say shows the profession should stop treating children.

    The injury was reported to the Chiropractic Board of Australia, which closed the case without reporting it to the public and allowed the chiropractor to keep practising as long as they undertook education with an ”expert in the field of paediatric chiropractic”.

    The Sun-Herald has also seen evidence that chiropractors have been entering Sydney hospitals, including neo-natal intensive care wards and surgical wards, to treat patients without the required permission.

    NSW Health has warned that any chiropractor working in a hospital without permission could put patients at risk, while the Australian Medical Association NSW says the behaviour is “outrageous”.

    Melbourne paediatrician Chris Pappas cared for a four-month-old baby last year after one of her vertebrae was fractured during a chiropractic treatment for torticollis – an abnormal neck position that is usually harmless. He said the infant was lucky to make a full recovery.

    ”Another few millimetres and there would have been a devastating spinal cord injury and the baby would have either died or had severe neurological impairment with quadriplegia,” he said.

    Manipulating a baby’s neck – wtf?

    I did that just for you. The correct spelling for stupid is stupid, not stoopid, stupid. Despite having two options to access the material within the article you appear to have missed the most important part of the article – it was a baby’s neck that was broken. Melbourne is not on the other side of the world either – that’s probably somewhere between New Zealand and Fiji.

    I did that just for you, seen as you like to assume people are to stoopid/stupid to click on a link. And being a pedant doesn’t reinforce your point, whatever it was supposed to be (be careful in your choice of Australian chiropractors, but trust BMA registered GPs?)
