Interview - Ryan Armstrong on Chiropractic

Ryan Armstrong portrait

 

Jonathan interviews public health and consumer advocate Ryan Armstrong, in whom the College of Chiropractors of Ontario is now taking a special interest. They discuss the internal split between "straights" and "mixers"; the Canadian origin of the chiropractic discipline; the College's monitoring of Ryan's public criticism; the divine claims of some practitioners; the safety of fast thrusts; the chiropractor-antivaxx link; and more. Ryan weighs in on two important questions: can chiropractors self-regulate and can the profession be moved to a more science- and evidence-based position?

Ryan's blog is PostTruthHealth and you can find him on Twitter at @RyArmst.
