Medical Doctor Approval
More and more MDs are recognizing the value of chiropractic care.
Most medical doctors are unfamiliar with chiropractic and the principles by which it works. Many are still operating under the policy perpetuated by the illegal boycott of chiropractors by the American Medical Association in the United States and the Australian Medical Association in Australia.
On September 25, 1987, a United States Federal judge ruled that the AMA had violated Section 1 of the Sherman Act, and that it had engaged in an unlawful conspiracy in restraint of trade "to contain and eliminate the chiropractic profession." The judge issued a permanent injunction against the AMA under Section 16 of the Clayton Act to prevent such future behavior.
Fortunately, more and more enlightened medical doctors around the world see the value in chiropractic care.
"Instead of thinking of chiropractic as an alternative or some kind of therapy separate from other health care, we really should consider it equivalent." 1

"If your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail." This is why I frequently refer patients to chiropractors as well as acupuncturists, massage therapists, osteopaths, or to any one I feel may have something to offer my patient." 2
David Perlmutter, M.D.

"I'm a surgeon, and chiropractors don't threaten me. But they do threaten some of the primary care doctors. The bottom line is this: We're supposed to take care of folks. If doctors cannot move a patient from one player to the next in a team, we're not doing what we need to do." 3

I have been a patient of Dr. Pisarek for a few years now. Every morning I have to say "thank you Dr. P.!". Your care and your treatment renew my energy... no more pains in my lower back, knee and foot. With your help I lost 20 pounds and I am keeping it off. I am really grateful to you and your wife Hilda for taking care of me. My retirement got a new meaning, thanks to you.
