“Dr” Joseph Cipriano’s Y-Strap is Dangerous

February 27, 2021 // 2 Comments

Dr Joseph Cipriano is a chiropractor based in Greenville, South Carolina, who in recent years has become somewhat of a minor celebrity after uploading videos of himself to YouTube using a device called a Y-Strap, coining the nickname ‘The Y-Strap Doc.’ Before I start, it’s important to understand the reasoning for why chiropractic is suddenly everywhere. In these modern times where we hunch over screens and phones, back pain has become a common ailment. But that’s not the only reason [...]

The Chiropractors Who Kill

February 1, 2020 // 1 Comment

John was killed by a woman who put significant pressure on his neck, in a procedure he did not consent to. She then greatly reduced his chances of survival when she moved him and provided inaccurate and misleading information to the paramedic, which, to me, implies guilt. Yes, despite this, the GCC – an independent statutory body established by Parliament to regulate the chiropractic profession and protect the health and safety of the public – seem to have done nothing! This is the issue [...]

The Chiropractors Who Kill

January 27, 2020 // 2 Comments

Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but chiropractic adjustment is a scam! It’s quackery of the purest kind, which unbeknownst to the general public is frequently associated with mild to moderate adverse effects. These include headaches, increased neck pain or stiffness, fatigue, dizziness or imbalance, extremity weakness, tinnitus, depression, anxiety, nausea and vomiting, blurred vision, and confusion, to name a few. Although serious and fatal complications are rare, they do still occur. [...]

Chiropractic Quacks Pretending to be Medical Doctors

January 5, 2020 // 3 Comments

Chiropractic adjustment is a scam! It’s quackery of the purest kind, yet its proponents would have you believe that chiropractors are part of the medical community and thus have the authority to give out medical advice. In reality, they are not; they are people who have wasted a large portion of their life studying either the ramblings of a quack and his spooky ghost friend, or a technique of pain management, which, time and time again, has been shown to be ineffective. Either way, studying [...]

The Secret that “Dr” Joseph Cipriano Doesn’t Want You to Know

December 28, 2019 // 4 Comments

A lot of people don’t know this, but chiropractic adjustment is a scam! It’s pure hocus pocus, that at its very best is a technique of pain management that time and time again, it’s been shown to be ineffective, with most credible research putting it on a par with a good massage. Yet, despite these well-documented facts, chiropractic adjustment remains a $15-billion industry, with the largest number of chiropractors (approximately 75,000 of them) found in the United States. There, this [...]

A lot of people don’t know this, but chiropractic adjustment is a scam! It’s pure hocus pocus, that at its very best is a technique of pain management that time and time again, it’s been shown to be ineffective, with most credible research putting it on a par with a good massage. Its origins are in the ramblings of a literal snake-oil-salesman, who convinced people that his spooky ghost friend told him that manual therapy, especially spinal manipulation therapy, restores your body’s [...]

Chiropractic: Quackery Hiding in Plain Sight

August 6, 2019 // 11 Comments

Chiropractic adjustment is a scam! It’s quackery of the purest kind dreamt up by a snake-oil salesman who claimed he was told from beyond the grave that manual therapy, especially spinal manipulation therapy, restores your body’s “innate intelligence”, curing all of your ailments. There is no scientific evidence that it can restore or maintain health, and only lukewarm evidence that it can help with lower back pain, with most credible research putting it on par with a [...]

The Story Behind Being Drugless?

January 16, 2013 // 10 Comments

By: Myles Power Edited by: Hannah In the style of Ben Goldacre, Dr Bob, or to give his full medical title, ‘Bob’ has been the subject of one of my latest articles. It turns out that the good ‘doctor’ got his qualifications from the National University of Health Science and Clayton College, in Chiropractic and Natural Health respectively. For some reason, he thinks that with these non-medical ‘qualifications’ he is authorised to give out medical advice. [...]

“Doctor” Bob

January 13, 2013 // 14 Comments

By: Myles Power Edited by: Hannah I was recently sent a video by one of my subscribers of an interview with a man calling himself ‘Dr Bob’. In the video, Dr Bob (who from now on I am just going to just call Bob) was very critical of vaccinations. The video was full of the same old misinformed claims: that natural immunity is better than vaccine-induced immunity; that vaccinations contain the element mercury; that there might be a link between vaccinations and autism. However, [...]
