Medical school curriculum provides no instruction on the science, art and philosophy of Chiropractic. As a result, medical doctors, through no fault of their own, have about as much understanding of Chiropractic as the average citizen on the street. The following quotes are from medical physicians who have taken the time to become more familiar with chiropractic and the chiropractic objective.
“Chiropractic is not a ‘cure all’ and it should never be claimed as such, but it reaches successfully a large number of so-called chronic diseases than any other known mechanical method, and is so much superior to the drug method that it is truly laughable to compare them.”-Alfred Walton, M.D.
“The sooner the medical profession recognizes the work of the chiropractor, the better. He is doing the work medicine cannot do; he belongs exclusively to the class of specialists...”-M.E. King, M.D.
“I believe chiropractic to be the most scientific method of removing the real cause of dis-ease, thereby allowing nature to resume normal action, which effects the recovery of the patient from bodily ailments.”-U.A. Lyle, M.D.
“Chiropractors are obtaining results that I could not have obtained with medicine and surgery.”-F.C. Rutherford, M.D.
“I started out, as do most beginners in the medical art, to conquer the demon disease with drugs. I too often failed, as they all do... the more I studied and experimented, the more I was convinced that the real cause of dis-ease was impinged nerves, and that the chiropractic adjustment was the most scientific way to release them...”-William A. Seeley, M.D.
“Under spinal adjustments, acute diseases are cut short and aborted, and chronic diseases recover which have been believed incurable.”-A.A. Gregory, M.D.
“Chiropractic is founded on the science of cause elimination and is the only method of specifically adjusting the cause of so called dis-ease that has ever been proven by fact. It is greater than osteopathy or medicine and will eventually lead the field. Chiropractic stands firmly on its achievements of the past... and needs no greater tributes.”-Edward S. Doutt M.D.
“I feel that chiropractors correctly stress the importance of the spine to general health of mind and body, a fact often underrated by most medical doctors.”-Andrew Wiel, M.D.
