Because it's (a) neat and (b) actually periodic.
Where's the animism? Pantheism? If you weren't trying to piss people off, you could replace the "Religions" with "irrational" doctrines of the religions, such as reincarnation, transubstantiation, transmigration of the soul, theism, "hard" atheism ("I *know* there's no god, [array of arbitrary scientific assertions] proves it!"), scientism, predestination, free will, etc. Some of the quackeries just seem to be practices which piss off the author - what exactly is irrational about trepanation, for instance? Where's bleeding? Or humour theory? Also, I'm not sure if the "Zombies" thing is about people who expect Night of the Living Dead or the Haitian abomination, which seems to be a real enough practice of kidnapping and assault-via-drug-abuse & manipulation.

(They are also litigious and not overly bright.)
Not sure what your operation was for, but chiropractors, when they skip all the voodoo, can be adequate physical therapists for some courses of treatement, albeit unlicensed and poorly trained for that role.

If they were genuine medical practitioners, they would have studied medicine. If you want to be a physical therapist, there are degree programs in that field that don't involve rampant pseudoscience. Or you can do the hard yards and earn an MD, and specialise in that field.
Or you can throw rationality and responsibility to the winds and be a chiropractor. They're not all lunatics, but they sure ain't doctors.
The field of chiropracty has no reason to exist. Where it overlaps actual medicine, it's redundant; where it doesn't, it's ineffective and potentially dangerous.
