The pamphlets listed below were published by Lewman Design Laboratories of Raytown, Missouri, between 1977 and 1978.  To see them, click here:

  • The Patient’s Guide to the Healing Art of Chiropractic
  • The Patient’s Guide to Allergy and Diet
  • The Patient’s Guide to Low Back Pain and Associated Leg Pain
  • The Patient’s Guide to Slipped Disc
  • The Patient’s Guide to Recurrent Headaches
  • The Patient’s Guide to Bursitis and Shoulder Pain
  • The Patient’s Guide to Enuresis (Bedwetting)
  • The Patient’s Guide to Sports Injuries

Headache falsely asserts that “many if not most headaches are caused by faulty alignment and mobility of one or more of the vertebrae of the neck and back.” The other pamphlets make vague, dubious claims that chiropractors can relieve symptoms and help establish and maintain optimal functioning.
