Yea, I've only been to 3 chiros and I have a friend who's in college to be 1. So it's not like I have a huge sample to compare from. But from what little I have been exposed to, there's been some pretty nutty stuff said. A lot of other things I've heard said has come from chiro patients so I'm under the impression that the chiros made these promises.
I did try a baby yoga book when Ivy was an infant. It just wasn't our cup of tea and we have other ways of bonding. I don't think parents who do mommy/daddy and baby yoga are wrong. Just that I personally didn't see any benefit to me and Ivy. Totally not something I would call harmful or even "quacky." Different body types and personality types will have different methods of preferred bonding and relaxation. All I ask is that parents don't fling their babies around like poi balls.
We didn't do any classes with yoga, just at home with a yoga book. No flinging, flipping or anything like that in it. For ds1 and I it was worth it because I had PPD and was not nursing, so bonding was harder for me with him then it was with ds2 without PPD and nursing.

A good adjusting can be a great thing, but it's definitely not the cure all some think it is. There are plenty of quacks in that profession, just like any other.
We had a chiro tell my mom they could cure her degenerative disc disorder with adjustments. Freaking nutjob wanted to adjust parts of her that can't BE adjusted because they're held together by rods, metal plates, etc... In her case, even an attempt to adjust her would likely put her in serious pain, if not worse. He wasn't the only one who thought degenerative disc disorder was simply a different way of saying "back out of whack, in need of adjustment" either. Maybe for a small handful of people, it can help(temporarily), but for most, it will usually cause more harm than good. Especially later on down the road.
I do have one here who's really good, but he's expensive as all hell and I can't afford to see him even if I wanted to. Medicaid does actually pay for some treatments, especially if a dr signs off as it being necessary. But I don't exactly feel right having them done when I can't afford them and they aren't necessary. So I don't.
