24. Why are some medical doctors so opposed to Chiropractic?
I don’t know.
Why are some Cadillac dealers so opposed to Mercedes Benz? I think it has to do with personal jealousy, trade opposition. There was a feeling in medicine many years ago that part of their job was to keep people away from chiropractors. Whether that was financial or whether they seriously believed chiropractors caused problems, I don’t know. But, we are seeing less and less of that as time goes by and many medical doctors themselves go to chiropractors. I was disturbed to find that some medical doctors go to chiropractors and then warn their own patients not to. That doesn’t sound too good to me and I don’t like it. But I think that any medical doctor that gives advice on Chiropractic would be as bad as my giving advice on medicine.
