First, start with mail,wire fraud and racketeering. The USPS need to be fully staffed with Attorneys to pursue fraudulent claims. Cyber rebates was a check Kiting scam where the company was previously required to pay all rebates. They were given a free pass to commit fraud. They engaged in the same practices that insurance companies do by falsely stating proof and paperwork was never received or was done incorrectly. Insurance companies are also paying doctors to make false medical claims. Racketeering is 2 felonies at the behest of third party. Given Citizens United, prosecutors should be able to file claims against companies without naming a person in particular. Currently, our courts are letting doctor and other simply make stuff up. They have a get out of jail free card in every state.
Entitlements are coming from people injured on the job and stiffed in workers comp. Someone not getting paid means the federal, local and state governments are getting stiffed too. That should be tax evasion and racketeering.
Here is a little bit about the nightmare of worker comp and medicine:
The OSHA (1993) safe limit for picking a box up off the ground is 51 lbs and 60 lbs for a suitcase (If you're ~5'10" tall). The shorter and heavier (muscle or fat) you are, the less you can lift. As the center of gravity of that object gets farther away from the center of your spine, the less you can lift. I have never met a teacher(not even an OSHA instructor), tradesmen, doctor, insurance rep or workers compensation attorney that knew this information. I verified this information with the people that wrote the OSHA ergonomics manual, Nelson and Associates of Texas.
Quality health care starts with diagnostics (blood & urine tests, imaging). Dr. Gerald Miller of Beaverton Oregon presents the following statistic in his lectures:
97% of women with mental health issues have hormonal issues. For example, while doing tech support, I chatted with a women who had depression after child birth. 11 years later, a doctor finally checked her hormone levels and found out she was not producing estrogen.
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) under the category of back injuries, it takes an MRI performed by a licensed radiologist (MD) to evaluate a soft tissue back injury. Chiroquacktic is just a hustle, scam and/or con which has no scientifically proven benefit but can cause: herniated spinal disks, nerve damage, loss of bladder and bowel control, the spread of cancer if a tumor is ruptured, death, your back to break, stroke, internal bleeding, etc. I have been to 9 of them. One cost me a million dollar workers compensation settlement through his corruption and incompetence. First, he proclaims that he does not need an x-ray to diagnosis the injury. Then, he feels up may back, proclaiming the issue is "low back" and that he knew it. Then, when pushed for a diagnosis not 2 minutes later, his diagnosis, "It's whatever I want!" Really. Subsequently, when in screaming pain, he indicates that with enough treatments everything will be fine. When that doesn't pan out and I badger him some more, he says there is no way to tell what is causing the pain. Medical malpractice plus insurance fraud = RICO (Racketeering) with a 10 year statute of limitations. The quack could have killed me and the state of Illinois will not prosecute. 8 out of 10 chiroquackers will do a pat on the back exam with no imaging according to a seller of workers compensation insurance (which insurance companies love).
While doing technical support, I spoke with an MD in Maryland whose specialty is internal medicine. He has had to tell about a dozen chiroquacktic patients that the problem is not low back, but terminal pancreatic cancer that will claim their lives in 3-6 months. In January 2009, I spoke several another chiroquacker survivors whose backs were broken by chiroquackers. If fact, the son of a co-worker ended up in emergency surgery at OHSU to have a massive tumor removed from his back that a chiroquacker not only missed on the x-ray but started braking up(the tumor). If my co-worker would have sent her son to this quack another month, the boy would be crippled or dead. I also spoke with a Neurosurgeon down in Florida. A chiroquacktic neck adjustment often severs arteries, resulting in death, stroke, or a trip to the emergency room for the lucky ones.
The legal requirements of a chiropractor is little more than a pamphlet. The legal requirements of an MD will just about fill a 60 lb. box of paper. Chiroquackers routinely claim skills and abilities such as legal services (workers comp), rehab (physical therapy), nutritional counseling (nutritionist, dietitian), the ability to evaluate back injuries (radiologist, orthopedic surgeon, neurologist) without having any training of consequence or licensing.
I went to orthopedic surgeon after seeing chiroquackers and actually received an exam, the necessary x-rays and MRIs as well as physical therapy. I also found out that I could never work in the trades again. I have 15 herniated, bulging and dessicated disks.
Blown disks are currently worth $30,000 -$50,000 each.
If a person has a blown disk, I recommend an inversion table. Try 30 minutes at 30 degrees past horizontal per day. Or try Back Magic. Additionally, try leg curls (5 sets of 25) on a bench that allow a person to be bent over (the dynamic loading takes the pressure off the nerves). Moreover, a brace (I recommend DeRoyal) often will cause realignment. They pretty much eliminate the need for a back stretcher.
Or watch the Penn and Teller show BullS**t
Doctors are often given a free pass to commit crime. Chiropractic and accupuncture are just out and out crap. Dr. Oz should have his license taken away for endorsing this crap along with hypnosis.
