Chiropractic causes leak of CSF

The BMJ Family Highlights page in the issue of 21 June (p 1353) got its terminology confused. In the picture story we used the term chiropractor, whereas the paper in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry stated that a chiropractitioner did the treatment. Chiropractors undergo prolonged training and supervision; almost anyone, however, can set up as a chiropractitioner after a brief training, and the methods they use are not those that would be accepted as chiropractic in Germany (where the case report originated) or elsewhere.
