Talk:Chiropractic neurology

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This article appears to be written by the American Chiropractic Association. IT is far too one-sided. For example, one sentence reads, "American Chiropractic Neurology Board defines the chiropractic neurologist as someone who provides the same manner of consultation as a medical neurologist, with the major difference being that the therapies and applications are performed without the use of drugs or surgery."

This is utterly bogus. A medical neurologist has at least 4 years of undergraduate school, 4 years of medical school, and 3 to 8 years of internship and residency. A Chiropractor doesn't even have to graduate high school. To even hint that a Chiropractic Neurologist has the same level of training as a medical doctor is simply bogus.

To be accurate, that sentence should be balanced with critical information from ACTUAL medical organizations. Perhaps a comparison of the level of education required to be a medical neurologist would help clarify things?

To say a Chiropractor does not even have to graduate high school is a bogus statement. A Chiropractic neurologist also has to have four years of undergraduate degree and a four year doctorate of chiropractic degree prior to pursuing the Chiropractic neurolgy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rock climber02 (talkcontribs) 05:56, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

An excerpt from offers a good counterpoint by saying "(Chiropractic Neurology) is the brainchild of Frederick R. Carrick, DC, Distinguished Post Graduate Professor of Clinical Neurology at Logan College of Chiropractic and Professor Emeritus of Neurology at Parker College of Chiropractic. He holds a Ph.D. in education, with a concentration in brain-based learning, from the distance-learning Walden University. On at least one public occasion, Carrick insisted he be introduced as a neurosurgeon. Walden is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The last year Walden has reported on, it had 26,615 full-time and 5358 part-time graduate students and awarded 219 doctoral degrees but no master's degrees, which indicates that its graduate students are either extraordinarily slow in earning their degrees or that it has an extraordinarily high dropout rate."

Yes this article is barely worth having in the current state. I certainly don't have the ability or time to beat it into shape; maybe someone else does? Otherwise it should be deleted. (talk) 06:19, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

What is chiropractic neurology? The article doesn't say[edit]

This article talks pretty much exclusively about regulatory bodies — it really doesn't say anything about what "chiropractic neurology" is, how it is similar to / different from non-chiropractic neurology, etc. I realize any sort of discussion of chiropractic (or its various branches) is likely to get tangled up in the whole argument of whether chiropractic is real or bogus; I'd be satisfied here just to see a readable, well-sourced explanation of what chiropractic neurology is and how it fits into the overall chiropractic topic area. — Richwales (no relation to Jimbo) 19:56, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
