Yelp User Faces Lawsuit Over Negative Review of Chiropractor‏

A former chiropractic patient, Eric L. Nordskog, is being sued by his former chiropractor, Steven Biegel. Why? For publicly criticizing him!

This is yet another example of chiropractic's cultish tendencies. Just like Scientology, chiropractors attempt to suppress the free speech rights of individuals. Please support this guy.

Another lawsuit of a somewhat similar nature is occuring in England, where the noted journalist, Simon Singh, is currently being sued for libel by the British Chiropractic Association for comments he wrote in a column in The Guardian. They echo contents in his book, Trick or Treatment? Alternative Medicine On Trial, written together with another major authority in the alternative medicine field, Edzard Ernst, the first Professor of Complementary Medicine in the United Kingdom.

Yes, to the chiropractic profession, free speech is an enemy. The truth hurts.
