Previously on the ABC Program Catalyst, a Chiropractor was accused of fracturing a child’s neck. It is interesting, yet not surprising that while the “bad news” in relation to the Chiropractor in question and the continued scrutiny of the Chiropractic profession was broadcast far and wide by the ABC, the actual findings in the court case surrounding this particular child have gone unmentioned.
Why is that?
Sadly, the Chiropractic Profession no doubt has been damaged unnecessarily by these accusations. To my knowledge as at the date of this post there has not been any retraction by the ABC Catalyst program who in my opinion used the story of the baby with the supposed “fractured neck” (being caused by the Chiropractor in question) to fuel the attack on Chiropractic.
Here is the result of the court case as published in “The Australian” yesterday: 16 October 2013.
‘The Australian’ reported today “Chiropractor has been CLEARED over claims a baby’s neck was broken during a treatment”.
After initial menacing reports by Fairfax papers (and their journalists who are affiliated with the Friends of Science in Medicine) this statement is welcomed by parents and chiropractors but is only a small compensation for the deliberate attack on the chiropractic profession.
The antics and aggressive strategies used by the Friends of Science in Medicine are embarrassing to many paediatricians, medical specialists, neurologists and surgeons who work cohesively with chiropractors for the greater good of our health care system.
CAA Media Release – 16 October, 2013;
The Australian has uncovered the expert report commissioned by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and the report shows the baby did not have a broken neck in the first place.
The baby had a condition known as congenital spondylolysis, a malformation of the spine and it can run in families.
The father of the baby had a similar congenital condition.
The congenital condition is rare but it can be confused with “hangman’s fracture.”
The AHPRA commissioned independent expert found in any event, the Chiropractor did not apply sufficient force to cause a fracture.
National President of the CAA, Dr Laurie Tassell said, “The Chiropractor could not and did not cause an injury to the child.”
“The CAA is outraged that the AMA and its camp followers have launched a campaign to stop Chiropractors treating children based on an alleged injury that never happened.”
“It is shameful that the entire Chiropractic profession has been smeared and attacked, over something that did not occur.”
“AMA President Dr Steve Hambleton should apologise for his public comments on this matter.”
“Queensland MP Dr Alex Douglas should admit that his attack on the Chiropractic profession was also based on ignorance of the facts” said Dr Tassell.
One would hope that comments and stories are based on fact and/or made by people who are at least educated and not ignorant of the facts.

The Chiropractic Profession is being attacked unnecessarily by the Medical Profession simply because approximately 18% of Australians now visit a Chiropractor and that is, again in my opinion, a real challenge for the medical based institution we find ourselves living under.
From what I know of the Chiropractic Association and the many Chiropractors who I have had the privilege of being treated by, their aim is to offer natural therapies and treatments that work hand in hand with traditional medicine, not against it. The goal is to educate and make people aware of what natural treatment and health alternatives are available so that they can then choose accordingly, and at the very least make informed choices. This goal aligns perfectly with who I am and with everything I personally stand for. It is about Pro-Choice.
