Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, February 26, 1971 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD -  Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: A few days ago a fellow my husband works with got sick on the job. He refused to go to the company doctor and said he had hia own specialist-� chiropractor. Today the man was back at the mill feeling fine. He told my husband if more people went to chiropractors instead of to society doctors they'd be better off. He claims all ailments are tied up with the nerves of the spine and the chiropractor knows which nerves to press to get the person well. He says it's much cheaper than fancy medical care, because the doctors are in cahoots with the drug manufacturers and all they are interested1 in is money. We have been reading your column for years and "we believe in what you say. What are your views on chiropractors?-Pittsburgh People DEAR PEOPLE: Chiropractors are wonderful-if you have a tired back, and nothing else. But if you are sick I hope you will go to a physician who has been licensed by his state's Board of Medical Examiners. Many illnesses are self limiting. This means they disappear without treatment. A person who has been massaged by a chiropractor and gets well often credits the chiropractor with having cured him. The truth is, he'd probably have been cured if he had fanned himself with goof us feathers. This is why most chiropractors do such a thriving business. Massaging the spine will not cure a brain tumor, cancer, diabetes or gallstones. Nfor will it cure a skin disease or a throat infection. The following testimony was given to a Congressional committee considering the question, "Should chiropractors be included in Medicare?" "It is the universal opinion of health experts that chiropractors lack the proper training and background to diagnose and treat human disease. The education of chiropractors is sub-standard and unscientific and the theory on which treatment is based is medically unsound." Gait Chapter, IODE active in community At the recent annual meeting of Sir Alexander Gait Chapter, IODE, reports indicated that the Chapter's work in the fields of service at home and abroad, education and citizenship was well supported.
