Chiropractors Still Claiming Cures

This just in - Not even 9:00 am yet here in NM, but I just received a phone call from a chiropractic marketing group. The area code is 917, so the call originated in/near NYC.

Her: Would you have time for a chiropractic check up at a local office?

Me: I have a terrific physician, so, no, I don't think I would make time for that.

Her: Have you ever gone to a chiropractor?

Me: Yes, when I was pregnant, I saw a chiropractor for lower back pain, but I can't say it helped much, and she tried to convince me not to vaccinate my kids, so I quit going.

Her: Well, chiropractic has lots of other benefits. Like it can help with sinus and allergy issues.

Me: Mmmm hmmm. I think not. And I don't think you are supposed to say things like that. Shouldn't you first tell me that your claim has not been evaluated by the FDA and chiropractic is not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease? [The Quack Miranda Warning]

Her: *crickets* *hang up*
