How wonderful that 1985 Super Bowl champion Jim McMahon experienced a life-changing health miracle because of a discovery by MRI pioneer Dr. Raymond Damadian, and the noninvasive Atlas Orthogonal technique expertly delivered by Dr. Scott Rosa ["Jim's McMiracle," Sports, Oct. 12].

McMahon praised the almost instantaneous relief after decades of debilitating suffering as soon as Rosa gently realigned the bones in his neck.

Why did Newsday not mention that Rosa, a "cranio-cervical specialist," is a chiropractor, and that Atlas Orthogonal is a chiropractic adjustment?

Maybe if the public were informed about the great results people get in chiropractors' offices, they would be more open-minded about this form of health care.
