Chiropractic: Concussion Craziness – Skeptical Health : Skeptical Health

Chiropractic: Concussion Craziness – Skeptical Health : Skeptical Health.

Let me summarize what the article says:

  1. A concussion is serious, which usually, and I repeat usually, resolves itself.
  2. A real doctor (a DO or MD who actually has a degree and has trained in emergency medicine) should see the patient to rule out anything more serious.
  3. A chiropractor cannot do #2 by law, by training, or by knowledge.

If you want more information about “Chiropractic Neurology” (and if that’s not quack medicine trying to sound real by throwing in scientific terms, I don’t know what is), read what Steven Novella said about it at Science Based Medicine.
