Mythbusters - Chiropractic
September 23, 2014
Hosted by Dorrin B. Rosenfeld, DC with occasional Co-Host Robert M. Woolery, DC
Dr. Bob Woolery and I spent last week talking about what Chiropractic IS; this episode, we will talk about what it IS NOT. Many people (who do not know any better) think Chiropractic is a sham procedure to rip people off. Chiropractic is many different things, but it is not a form of snake oil. There is much more evidence of its effectiveness for what it claims to do to as there is for medical procedures such as disc surgery, tonsillectomies, and gall bladder removal operations. We will talk about why people think that once you go to a Chiropractor, you have to go for the rest of your life and why Chiropractors seem to charge too much for what they do, and why Chiropractors seem to intentionally damage you to keep you coming. These are just a few things people say about DC's - there are more. We want to hear from you.
Miracles of Chiropractic: Turning on the Power Within
Archives Available on VoiceAmerica Health and Wellness Channel
This show is about how Chiropractic can help you whether or not you believe in it. This drug-free alternative to traditional medicine has the power to positively unleash the body’s own healing energy. Medical research is constantly demonstrating how Chiropractic care saves time and money compared to the Western Medicine paradigm of “mask the symptoms with drugs.”
You can realize that many of your conditions are fixable or can be helped. Complementary healing methods can often work together with spectacular results.
On the show we will talk about what “adjusting” means, the specific benefits of upper Cervical Chiropractic, several complimentary healing methods, how DC’s benefit chronic conditions, and specific neurological conditions like epileptic seizures or fibromyalgia. We will talk about this using current research, specific cases, and philosophy.

Dr. Dorrin graduated from Amherst College with a degree in Philosophy and Women's Studies. She then joined the Peace Corps to teach HS Chemistry in Belize, Central America. While there, she was hit by a tortilla truck while walking, and spent the next year and a half in a hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. After escaping the hospital, she returned to Belize and met a chiropractor. He made such a positive change in her life, she graduated from Chiropractic School, and has since been able to make a similar impact on others. Her special emphasis is patients with traumatic or acquired brain injuries.
