Chiropractic Journal of Australia : CJA December 2013
Chiropractic Journal of Australia Volume 43 Number 4 December 2013 135 conditions, it is diffcult to see how claims of an absence of a scientifc base for a particular modality could be substantiated, without detracting from practices of medical colleagues. Such medical practices are conducted primarily in non-English speaking countries. There would appear to be a distinct contradiction between those professionals who advocate and employ SMT for a variety of conditions, and those who cannot accept the concepts. The attitude portrayed by Catalyst is not unanimous within the medical profession. Support for chiropractic is emerging from medical circles in Australia and elsewhere. A recent survey indicated that 31% of general practitioners would 'seek treatment from a chiropractor.' 64 Given the traditional policy espoused by some practitioners, that is a surprisingly high percentage. It would seem that the television program 'Catalyst' either overlooked or was not aware of the existing medical evidence on the topic it presented. REFERENCES 1. Dwyer J.
