I have been battling a quack doctor for a year and a half, and I was finally vindicated in court today. I was having extreme migraine headaches, so bad that I would sit in a corner somewhere and cry. I could not eat, sleep, or work. My doctor determined that I had a pinched nerve in my neck, and reccomended that I either see a Physical Therapist or a Chiropractor. There was a Chiropractor one block from my work, so I chose to go there. For my first visit, he only did X-rays and an exam, and told me he would determine a course of treatment and implement it at my next visit. Upon my arrival next time, he put me on his table and began to explain that he felt my headaches were caused by a misalignment in my skull , and proceeded to put a metal rod against my head to suposedly adjust the bones in my skull! Now, I am not a doctor, but I do know that the bones in your skull are pretty much fused together by the time you are about two years old, and they don't move ( at least they aren't supposed to move:confused: ). I jumped off the table, and told him he was a quack and a sheister, and not only would I not pay for this visit, I would be canceling my check. He said he would sue me, I said i would see him in court. So, today we met in court. After the Judge heard my description of his "diagnosis and treatment", he told the idiot that was the most bizarre medical treatment he had ever heard of, and unless the doctor could produce documentation showing this to be an accepted and effective treatment, he was going to find in my favor. Hooray! It felt so good to see that quack put in his place in the court room.
