Chíro for Kids?

Australasian Science;Jul/Aug2011, Vol. 32 Issue 6, p35
The article questions the soundness of reputable Australian universities offering chiropractic courses. According to the author, chiropractic is based on the 19th century concept that the vertebral subluxatoin complex (VSC) is the cause of most diseases. She reports that the 21st century scientific community has argued that VSC is merely a theory and is not supported by solid evidence. She adds that since evidence is lacking that chiropractic helps conditions like asthma and allergies, government funds should not be used to support the discipline.
