Chiros slammed for 'dangerous' COVID-19 claims

Declarations that spinal therapy 'boosts immunity' have been labeled 'plainly irresponsible' by the academic chiropractic community

Chiropractic academics are calling for a crackdown on their fellow chiropractors for making ‘pseudoscientific’ claims that imply manual manipulations can prevent coronavirus.

In March, the US-based International Chiropractors Association (ICA) claimed that chiropractic care and spinal adjustments could boost immune function “with the implication that it might be helpful in preventing COVID-19”.

But academic chiropractors who reviewed the statement slammed the claim, finding it to be “plainly irresponsible” during a pandemic.
