MD Approval Needed?


Medical Doctor Approval

Most medical doctors are unfamiliar with chiropractic and the principles by which it works. Many are still operating under the policy perpetuated by the illegal boycott of chiropractors by the American Medical Association in the United States and the Australian Medical Association in Australia.

On September 25, 1987, a United States Federal judge ruled that the AMA had violated Section 1 of the Sherman Act, and that it had engaged in an unlawful conspiracy in restraint of trade "to contain and eliminate the chiropractic profession." The judge issued a permanent injunction against the AMA under Section 16 of the Clayton Act to prevent such future behavior.

Fortunately, more and more enlightened medical doctors around the world see the value in chiropractic care.

"Instead of thinking of chiropractic as an alternative or some kind of therapy separate from other health care, we really should consider it equivalent." 1

Paul Shekelle, M.D., Ph.D.

"If your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail." This is why I frequently refer patients to chiropractors as well as acupuncturists, massage therapists, osteopaths, or to any one I feel may have something to offer my patient." 2

"I'm a surgeon, and chiropractors don't threaten me. But they do threaten some of the primary care doctors. The bottom line is this: We're supposed to take care of folks. If doctors cannot move a patient from one player to the next in a team, we're not doing what we need to do." 3

Larry Teuber, MD
