Physical therapy is evidence-based, the practice of chiropractic "medicine" is based on voodoo. Like homeopaths (gag).
Cmon man! Again, I'm not saying that DOs are like chiropractors. I'm saying that historically, until really very recently, MDs held the monopoly on physician care in states, shutting out osteopathy. Now, of course, we view them all as doctors. But that's now.
