“A few months ago I visited a chiropractor just to see what would happen…He gave me the hard sell on the importance of regular chiropractic care to prevent degenerative disease. I listened and nodded politely then left and that, as far as I was concerned, was the end of the matter. But there’s apparently an old adage I didn’t know about until it was mentioned by someone on the Bad Science forum. It goes like this: Q: What do you get if you visit a chiropractor? A: Another appointment. Like everyone else, chiropractors have a living to earn. Of course, most of us don’t try to make a living delivering an unnecessary and scientifically unsupported therapy to people who don’t need it. But I guess those who do aren’t going to let anyone who’s already set foot on their premises, had both feet through the door, get away without at least one more attempt to lure them back.” Skepticat blogspot (10th June 2010)
