Unvaccinated kids see chiros more

Parents who chose not to vaccinate their children are also more likely to take them to a chiropractor, a study finds.

A US survey found parents who refused childhood vaccinations were four times more likely to have sent their youngest, school-aged child to a chiropractor than parents of vaccinated children.

Parents who conscientiously objected to school immunisation requirements were also more likely to have strong concerns about vaccines, to distrust local doctors and to have had one or more births in a non-hospital, alternative setting.
