Bashing Chiropractic is Part of PT Curriculum

Dr. Bill Kinsinger, the MD behind the Necks911 campaign and a fellow who claims credit for derailing the FSU chiropractic college effort is being invited to deliver his anti-chiropractic rhetoric to paying audiences as part of the continuing education program of the University of Oklahoma, Department of Rehabilitation Sciences and the Oklahoma Physical Therapy Association continuing education program. The video is viewable here:

The video was produced by the Board of Regents of the University of Oklahoma. The event description and brochure can be found here:

The video of the presentation is now being used to educate the future doctors of physical therapy who will soon begin to graduate from more than 187 doctorate physical therapy degree programs in the US. The curricular use is described here:

Clearly the Neck911 leader is finding wide acceptance. This type of malicious, slanderous assault on the chiropractic profession delivered by a medical doctor to medical doctors is a possible violation of the AMA antitrust settlement which resulted from the Wilke v. AMA trial.

Chiropractic America has taken up the legal challenge to defend chiropractic in the past (Chiropractic America v. LaVecchia and Chiropractic Alliance of New Jersey v. Parisi), and prevailed in each of these cases. But we have since resolved to focus all of our efforts on public relations and advocacy and to leave the legal challenges to the organizations within the profession which are better suited to deal with legal and legislative issues.

We are grateful to all of those who are helping us to make chiropractic part of the American public’s thought process. As we grow, so does our ability to spread the word on our members’ behalf and give chiropractic its deserved place in the hearts and minds of the American people. The best defense is a strong offense and we are on the offensive, spreading the chiropractic message.
