    Aren't medical mistakes investigated by the medical board? I have no idea, so this is a genuine question. Wouldn't that be a conflict of interest also?

    This is actually a media release. Ad VP said, the truth will lie somewhere in the middle. But refuting a newspaper article with a media release is pretty poor critical thinking. I agree with PP who said the original reporting was pretty shoddy and biased, but the job of the person who wrote this piece is to write spin for the CAA. Reliable source? I doubt it very much.

    Yes but some journos don't let the truth get in the way of a good story. Especially if they can invoke mass mummy hysteria!

    Yes good point, I guess my questions was more - if it was a medical issue - which it clearly was - why wasn't investigated by the medical board. Surely chiros are not qualified to investigate spinal fractures?

    Misconduct is investigated by your governing board. Drs are registered with the medical board, vets with the vet board, chiros with a chiro board.

    ETA - they will call in other professionals for reports if they need them.

A chiropractic adjustment's force is not high (especially when treating children) it is far more plausible that the fracture was aquired previous to the chiropractic treatment and was missed by the chiropractor. This would explain the boards decision to order further education for the chiropractor and not strike him off the register. Please think twice before considering peadiatritions, the AMA or spinal surgeons experts on chiropractic care. They are not. Those quoted in this article obviously have a very poor knowledge of chiropractic practices. It's also worth noting that the author of the article has written a few articles on chiropractic, all of which are as poorly researched as this one. One might question what her motivation really is. Regardless of whether you choose to use chiropractic care for your children, you should know it has an enviable safety record especially for kids. That's what the research says.
    Welcome to bub hub, interesting first post, diving right in!
    There have indeed been adverse events associated with chiro care for kids but the safety record has been good for a while. What actually bothers me is the record of effective treatment. There is no evidence that chiro treatments for kids are any more effective than a placebo (anecdotes aside) so that is why I wouldn't use it, personally. This story- I think there is more to it. That statement from the CAA is only on their fb page and appears to be their only defence. Why is the family not speaking out? Does toe CAA allege that the child is fictional? Very confusing.
