Read the following book preview about how Mr. McAndrews changed the course of chiropractic for the better when he represented the profession in an antitrust suit against the American Medical Association:
An Historical Account of the Legal Journey That Transformed the Chiropractic Profession
Attorney George McAndrews accepted the arduous task of representing the chiropractic profession in a lawsuit against the behemoth American Medical Association at the request of plaintiffs Chester Wilk, Michael Pedigo, James Bryden and Patricia Arthur. Having been weighed down by decades of oppression by the AMA and its conspirators, the chiropractic profession was on the brink of change. However, the health, scientific and legal landscapes were evolving and it was not clear if the future of healthcare would include chiropractic. The trial could turn the tide by determining if patients would be able to access chiropractic care and if chiropractors and other healthcare professionals could work together.
This historical treatise traces the trials and tribulations of this landmark legal case and explores decades of overt and covert tensions between the medical and chiropractic professions. Gritty facts found during the trials reveal persecution efforts to destroy chiropractic, weaknesses within both professions, and the personal sacrifices made that lifted a crushing burden. Important lessons can be learned from the tale of this historic legal journey as healthcare continues to evolve.
