Bad Chiropractors

by CVClaims » Tue Nov 20, 2007 08:06 am

I feel like there should be a thread for chiropractors that have very bad practices, i.e. over treatment, fraud, inordinary treatment, known to be buddy buddy with lawyers, etc. Would this be wrong?

It might be easier to make a list of ones that don't do as you mentioned. :lol:

Don't get me wrong... it all really starts with the patient. A doctor cannot "over-treat" unless the patient seeks the treatment to start with and _wants_ to continue treating.

I disagree tcope, DC's have a lot of power when it comes to the claims, the patient is vulnerable and usually uninformed and will do what the DC recommends, especially if they say the x-ray shows.......

I have seen upward of 80 treatments for a soft tissue neck/back that should be resolved in 4-8 weeks, and I have heard of 100+ cases in some rare instances

I agree with that, especially in KY where PIP pays up to 10k and it seems like they get most of that amt. They make more than doctors here.
