Fraudulent Blog Post Discovered by David Marcarian
In this blog post, the writer, Andy Lewis, claimed the MyoVision was just another example of the “uneducated making false, unsupported claims.” A distinct attempt to slander the Chiropractic profession. He goes on the write, “it would appear that the device appeals to chiropractors as it gives a scientific veneer to an invalidated diagnostic… The MyoVision device would not be the only type of questionable diagnostic procedure undertaken by chiropractors.”
Mr. Lewis’ opinion on the MyoVision and Chiropractic are outdated and simply untrue. He made made several false assumptions here, but the 2 that stand out: 1. The MyoVision test has no research behind it, and 2. That the examiner he was questioning was a chiropractor. It turns out that Mr. Lewis was wrong on both counts. David Marcarian quickly responded to this blog post, providing over 70 indexed research papers to support the proper use of Static Surface EMG technology, and informed Mr. Lewis that it was in fact an osteopath who performed the test at the clinic in question, not a chiropractor.
When you read the post, don’t miss the comments at the bottom – they are more informative and entertaining than the article itself. It is in the comments where you will find Mr. Marcarian’s response invalidating the whole blog post with his list of references and logical reasoning.
A friend, who is in criminology, once said that “behind a computer, everyone can feel like they have the credibility of a NY Times reporter, but the reality is, that’s simply not true.” Mr. Lewis proves this theory by posting a position where he has no support.
“The bottom line? Whether done in the name of religion or science, dogma is never an appropriate way to approach any position if you plan on winning the argument.”
