Is chiropractors helpfull?

Some for some issues

Chiropractors
Research suggests that chiropractic treatment is safe and effective for back and neck pain and migraine headaches. Just as not all medical doctors are the same, I find some chiropractors give much higher quality care than others. I prefer chiropractors who use more gentle styles like direct non-force, network and activator techniques. I am wary of those who advise long-term treatment.

Can a chiropractor help anxiety?

Chiropractic

Osteoporosis
I'm sure some chiropractors would say yes -- as there are all different forms of practice. However, this might not be the most direct route to feeling better unless your anxiety is directly tied to anatomic problems in your spine. Some chiropractors are more interested in nutrition which may play a part in anxiety; others are not. You'd have to ask the specific chiropractor what s/he does.

Can a chiropractor turn my baby?

Absolutely no

Turning the baby to facilitate delivery is a technique that saves a great deal of misery. It is done by an obstetrician and occasionally your family doctor. There is absolutely nothing in the training or knowledge of a chiro to perform this procedure. If you are offered this by a chiro, run away fast. See you obstetrician.

Can chiropractors give inductions?

Induce labor? No.

Pregnant3
No, chiropractors do not induce labor. Chiropractors are not allowed to prescribe, dispense, or administer medications as this falls outside of their primary training. It is possible that some claim to have special "chiropractic techniques" for inducing labor without drugs, but more likely they just do helpful massage, plus movements and positioning of a woman's back, hips, and legs.

Does every chiropractors see babies?

A few

Chiropractors
There is absolutely no reason for a chiropractor to ever see or treat a baby or child. Any condition they might go after in this age group should be handled by your pediatrician. It is shocking, and unethical for a chiropractor to see anyone that is not an adult. If an adult wants to waste time and money on a chiro that is their issue. Kiddies cannot make such a choice.

Can chiropractors help with earaches?

Never

Chiropractors
Chiropractors do not know of any disease condition that they will not try and treat. They offer a strenuous massage which can sometimes be dangerous. There is no connection between ear problems and the spine so chiropractors have nothing to offer in this arena. See your family doctor or your otolaryngologist.

What services do chiropractors provide?

Massage

Chiropractors
Chiropractors provide a deep, sometimes satisfying but occasionally dangerous, massage. They cannot diagnose and have no interest in cure as they want clients to come back again and again. Their disease theory has long ago been discredited but they are charismatic and convincing so patients continue to come back to them.
