Labeled as quacks and cultists, the chiropractic profession has long been the victim of strategic assaults waged by big businesses and powerful organizations like the AMA. Although the US makes up only 5% of the world's population, we consume over 50% of all the world's pharmaceutical drugs, while we endure worsening health. DOCTORED is director Bobby Sheehan and producer Jeff Hays’ entry into the emerging genre of health-focused feature documentaries and follows both patients and health care providers struggling within a broken health care system. Illuminating historical events such as the Wilk vs. American Medical Association case in which the AMA was found guilty of an illegal conspiracy to "contain and eliminate" the chiropractic profession, DOCTORED sheds light on this "doctored" system and opens a conversation on real solutions.
