Spine effects

This App has been sponsored by some chiropractors in North America, hence it is free.

It shows a diagram of the human spine and describes some chiropractic theories. It claims a chiropractor could manipulate a part of the spine to cure an illness (for example, a sore throat or an allergy) without any evidence to support these claims.

Chiropractic medicine is considered by doctors to be “complementary” or “alternative”.

Lack of evidence to support its practice means that it is not currently recommended by medical doctors in the UK.

If you were considering visiting a chiropractor then you may wish to look at this App to find more about what may be involved.

I would not recommend this App and believe it to have no medical value.

App rating: 0/5
