In a word (okay…two words) absolutely NOT.
Yes, I’m a DC (Doctor of Chiropractic) myself. Do I have a vested interest in promoting chiropractic? Not exactly, simply because I don’t do spinal adjusting (all of my work revolves around Functional Medicine, a very high-end neuro-metabolic approach to chronic conditions, endocrine issues, blood sugar problems, fatigue, autoimmune disorders, you name it, that relies mostly on scientific lab testing to identify the physiological imbalances and give a starting point in terms of helping improve those issues). Yes, it’s true: not every DC touches the spine. No, we’re not being sacrilegious or wasting our chiropractic degree; we’re just choosing to utilize different parts of our education and develop a different skillset.
So anyway…am I biased? Maybe. Do I still have a valid opinion? Yep.
