A new reality programme for Dr. Pimple Popper and Botched fans is on the way, and it’s not for the faint of heart.
Crack Addicts, which will show on TLC, portrays patients who have their bones fractured and joints burst while their bodies are twisted into what appear to be extreme postures.
Dr. Alessandra Colón will star in the reality series, which will show her ‘curing patients with the power of chiropractic adjustment and a huge sense of humour.’
The trailer opens with the jaw-clenching noises of patients having their bones realigned, with them groaning with relief in between the clicks.
Dr Colón is seen twisting their heads in various ways, before explaining: ‘Everybody has their own canvas, I work with the body, that’s my canvas.’
Amidst even more cracking, she continues: ‘When most people think about chiropractors, they think I’m going to perform jujitsu, kill them, rip their head off.’
One patient worries: ‘I don’t want someone to break me.’
Another adds: ‘I’ve always been nervous with chiropractors.’
But in between even more cracks and clicks, Dr Colón reassures: ‘When you adjust somebody and you just see their eyes roll back into their head, that’s a chiropractic adjustment.
‘We are doctors of the nervous system, we do everything from ears to shoulders to elbows to hips to toes, knees.’
She is shown tugging on someone’s foot before telling a patient’s spouse that she will be’massaging your wife’s bottom’.
‘I’m a little bit extra, goofy, hopefully lovable,’ Dr Colón adds to the camera.
The two-minute clip then turns towards a more heart-breaking side, as patients visit the Florida-based doctor as their ‘last bit of hope’.
One wears a tiny corset clinching in her waist, to which Dr Colón admits being ‘shocked’, while another explains she was left needing help after a ‘boat accident’.
Someone else is attending Dr. Colón because other doctors ‘don’t want to touch’ her, before another patient sobs and expresses her desire to be ‘on her feet’ for her own daughter’s wedding.
‘It’s hard to be hopeful, but at this point, I would do anything,’ another patient admits.
Dr Colón ends the teaser saying: ‘My mission is to heal people one spine at a time, and have a lot of fun doing it.’
Crack Addicts will air on TLC in America from May 24.
