    > I have been able to reduce disc herniations with my techniques - to the point to where the patient was completely asymptomatic


    No, you most certainly have not "reduced" disc herniations, Kevin...ABSURD.

    But...how about some references or links to back up your allegation.

    >No drugs, no surgery - just adjustsments,


    What "adjustsments"? How are you shoving a herniated disc back to its origin?

    >trigger point therapy,


    Symptom management...doesn't do a thing to correct a herniated disc.

    >traction,


    Oh...my...God.

    You are going to fuck someone up one day...guaranteed, Kevin.

    >and specific rehabilitative exercises to stabilize, and strengthen the supportive soft tissue structures.>


    Symptom management for musculoskeletal pain.

    Not one thing to "reduce a herniated disc".

    None.

    Uh, huh...keep going...

    >If the nuclear material is extruded into the thecal sac,


    Kevin.... ( sigh..)

    You just keep on with incorrect medical information.

    A "herniated disc" BY DEFINITION is "a rupture or herniation of the nucleus pulposus" !!!!!!!!!

    Read that again!

    >and has calcified...


    Has nothing to do with it.

    >it's a surgical case.>


    A herniated disc will never, ever repair itself other than with surgery.

    People can live with the pain and do whatever for symptom relief, but the disc will always remain herniated.

    > But most people aren't to that point. And they CAN have their problem managed conservatively.


    That is another terrible generalization of people with disc injuries.

    LOL! Jack already said that he assumed that the chiro wanted him to come in for 7 days straight, and admitted he was wrong!

    Get over it!

    > Spine surgery has an absolutely horrible track record.


    How about those medical references?

    And again...any proof of that?

    Uh..Kevin?

    Pretending that you "quote" this book correctly and can even understand if you take it out of context:

    1 in 10,000 is 0.0001 %.

    Not 0.01%.

    Am I wrong?

    What else are you misquoting or misunderstanding?

    Hmmm..."contributed"....maybe the patients got pneumonia and that was the "contribution" from anesthesia.

    I am positive you take it out of context.

    Any guess on what it is in 2003?

    What "bullshit"?

    >It's not. I've never done that. None of my chiropractic friends & colleagues do that. And I don't know of ANYONE who's done

    that.>

    Really? Hmmmm...do you deny chiropractors use these techniques?

    > Jack was upset with the price of the chiropractic care -


    That wasn't all..the dude HURT Jack.

    Did you read that part?

    Wow...where did you come up with that?

    Any references or proof of these figures you allege?

    I mean..my own spinal surgery cost $17,000.

    Holy crap, dude..you miss the point.

    And I *knew* you would have to mention "Polfus" at least once today.

    Yup, and I called you on it.

    And again, you would be wrong with all the talk people have about guitar playing injuries.

    The world doesn't revolve around you, Kevin.

    > Jack will probably have a surgery done. And I despite all of

    You need to reread the majority of your posts, son.

    That's gonna be a little hard to believe, unfortunately.
