My blog posts seem to run in themes – sort of like when after you buy a car, you see other people driving that model all over the place.
Yesterday we posted about homicide charges being leveled against an unlicensed California chiropractor operating a clinic out of his garage.
That post garnered a large number of hits from a related story in the Canadian National Post, where our blog was linked under “More from the Web.”
An Alberta woman has launched a $529-million class-action lawsuit against provincial chiropractors after a neck adjustment allegedly left her paralyzed. Sandra Gay Nette, of Edmonton, has been paralyzed since September, 2007. The lawsuit claims that a chiropractic session damaged both her vertebral arteries, which disrupted blood flow to her brain. On her way home from the chiropractor, Ms. Nette had to pull her car to the side of the road and call her husband for help, the statement of claim alleges. She suffered permanent neurological damage. Ms. Nette is mentally aware, but cannot swallow, speak or breathe on her own. She has limited movement in her right arm, but nowhere else in her body.
The more I learn about chiropractic, the more I am frightened.
