We love our chiro.
I have had numerous dodgy experiences with GPs, including a misdiagnosis which caused a lot of trauma. I still have a general mistrust of them (except for the few that I consult that I really do trust). It infuriates me that chiropractors get tarred with one brush despite the many good experiences people have with them. There a dodgy operators in every single profession, including the main****** medical field. I have a friend who is a GP who has told me stories about dodgy GPs that would make your toes curl. Never makes the headlines though, does it. 😏

I think the problem with the "dodgey" chiropractors is that they give advice in areas they shouldn't.
The one my mum had been seeing, who i took my baby to see, tried to prescribe my mum black salve cream for a facial skin cancer. Mum had had several very dangerous cancers taken off by a plastic surgeon, and the chiro told her that she could get a hold of black salve to give her (which is illegal). She told her she didn't need to go to see the skin cancer clinic that she'd been going to every year. This kind of advice is what is dangerous and might be an isolated practitioner but it does happen.

Medicine we use today was probably laughed at at some stage with people asking where is the evidence. What is helpful for one person may not be useful for another but doesnt make it any less important.

My chiro just massaged my baby's neck and back. Used some pressure points and then she could turn her head both sides.
Pretty simple and important imo to have full use of your neck/shoulders.
My dd1s injury was due to a quick vacuum birth.
I took my dd3 to him at 2weeks old as she was a grumpy baby. He laughed, told me he couldn't fix that but sent me home with a bottle of wine as a present.
