Doctors Send Warning After Video Of Chiropractor Cracking Newborn's Back Goes Viral

Would you crack a four-day-old baby’s back or let a doctor do it? This Australian Chiropractor did in order to treat a baby girl for colic and is now under fire after posting a video of the procedure on YouTube.

Dr. Ian Rossborough often posts videos of his work, but this one has other doctors concerned.

In the video, you can him performing the procedure on the baby girl, while explaining to the parents what was going on. You can hear the child cry after the loud crack.

“When you see the patients returned with these children, they always report that the child is just so much more comfortable, they sleep so much better, they eat so much better,” the doctor tells the parents in the video.

However, some doctors don’t agree, according to MailOnline.

“Well I think that this is an unnecessary and seemingly almost cruel process that there is actually no evidence to support,” Dr. Frank Jones, president of The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners told Daily Mail Australia. “Why would you do that?”

Jones says chiropractors shouldn’t advertise or practice on babies. Dr. John Cunningham of Melbourne went as far as to file a complaint with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency against the doctor.

'There is actually no evidence whatsoever that manipulating the spine makes any difference to things such as colic or asthma,' he said.
