Anti-quack campaigners welcome chiropractor move

Anti-quackery campaigners have welcomed a historic demand by the chiropractic regulator for rogue chiros to stop claiming spinal manipulation can treat organic diseases and infections.

On Monday, the Chiropractic Board of Australia (CBA) attempted to draw a hardline on the therapeutic limitations of the profession after being accused of failing to rein in chiropractic clinics claiming to treat conditions from diabetes to flu, to ADHD.
