A San Diego, Calif. woman is suing a chiropractor she claims collapsed her lung during an unlicensed acupuncture treatment.
Jamie Del Fierro says she was injured about a year ago during a treatment for tension headaches at the office of Chula Vista chiropractor Walker Scott.
Her lawsuit, filed on Jan. 16, says Scott inserted fine needles in her chest even though he isn’t licensed to perform the procedure.
U-T San Diego reported the case Monday. It says Walker declined to be interviewed for its story.
