Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on PainScience.com are updated regularly over the years.

Overheard: a chiropractor speaking of an upper cervical treatment said to a patient, “Your neck is now in God’s alignment.” Not just an adjustment — it’s holy! Oddly enough, and little known to many patients, there is a strong theme of Christian fundamentalism in chiropractic that blends seamlessly with the work, as though chiropractic is a spiritual calling. It is strange and distasteful to virtually anyone but another fundamentalist Christian.
