June 20, 2008 — CNN’ American Morning is scheduled to air a segment about the purported association between chiropractic cervical manipulation and vertebral artery dissection on June 24.
A CNN production team visited the offices of the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and spoke with Kevin Corcoran, executive vice president for advice about how consumers should select a doctor of chiropractic and what they can expect during their first office visit.
To round out the segment, CNN also planned to speak with two doctors of chiropractic, a neurologist, and of a patient who suffered a stroke.
ACA is planning to monitor the broadcast and will respond as needed on behalf of the profession.
