Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

There's a Q&A thread with a chiropractor over on Lifehacker and the commenters, including a couple of real doctors and, surprisingly, another chiropractor, just tore her to shreds. It's hilarious.

does your average person who doesn't experience any great pain or discomfort need a chiro check up?

Great question! Most people don't know that only about 10% of your nervous system transmits pain. The other 90% is what controls the function of every organ, cell or tissue in your body. So yes, many of my patients are what I call 'Wellness' patients and come to get adjusted when they are not experiencing any pain at all.

As a neurologist I find your answer ambiguous and disingenuous. Chiropractic manipulation for non-musculoskeletal issues is more often detrimental than helpful, in my experience.
