Washington Post publishes favorable ... 

The chiropractic profession recently received national attention, thanks to a favorable article in The Washington Post.

The feature story, titled “Mainstream Makes Adjustments,” appeared on the front page of the July 17 health section and includes the personal experiences of chiropractic patient and writer Buzz McClain, who — following three unsuccessful spinal surgeries — was referred by his neurologist to Glenn Loebig, DC.

One of the positive comments in the story is from William Lauerman, MD, chief of spine surgery and a professor of orthopedic surgery at Georgetown University Hospital. “I’m an orthopedic spine surgeon, so I treat all sorts of back problems, and I'm a big believer in chiropractic,” he is quoted as saying. “I'm more of a believer for acute problems like short-term back pain, although I know [chiropractic] can be helpful for some cases of more-chronic conditions.”

Several representatives from the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) were quoted in the article, including ACA Executive Vice President Kevin Corcoran, Bill Morgan, DC, of the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., and William Lauretti, DC, an ACA spokesperson and associate professor at New York Chiropractic College.
