    @HH,
    poor detective work on your part. From Stiles’ website it says:

    Dear Guest,

    As of June 7th, 2012 – Dr. Stiles has reinjured his shoulder (torn rotator cuff) and is unable to continue adjusting at this time. The physically demanding aspect of adjusting has aggravated and worsened the injury.

    Where do you get the bit about failed treatment from another chiropractor ?

    I can’t speak on Dr. Hall’s behalf, but I think she was including a reference to the shoulder as a little tongue-in-cheek dig at the fact that Chiropractors consider themselves MSK/Spinal specialists, yet the Chiropractor in question wasn’t (presumably) able to utilize the services of a colleague-in-quackery to repair his MSK injury, since it’s affecting his ability to work.

    Dr. Hall can correct me if I’m wrong.

    @rwk,
    “Where do you get the bit about failed treatment from another chiropractor ?”

    Chris’ interpretation is correct. I didn’t say that he had been treated by a chiropractor. I said “apparently” and meant that if chiropractic were all it’s cracked up to be, manipulation could presumably have restored him to normal function..
