I thought I’d share some articles from the past on topics such as subluxation, healing, energy, retracing, innate intelligence, objectivism and faith in chiropractic. Following is an assortment of articles organized in no particular fashion, authored by chiropractors and chiropractic assistants (and maybe even a chiropractic student or two), during the past decade or so
The following information is a synopsis of chiropractic’s rich and colorful history. The basic outline and data is derived from…
On October 6, 2012, Life Chiropractic College West will be hosting the 5th Annual Lyceum as well as celebrating Delta Sigma Chi, Nu Chapter’s 20 years of service. The Lyceum was first created by Dr. BJ Palmer in Davenport, Iowa. This year’s event will feature several high-profile speakers such as Drs.

John K. Maltby, DC, FICA, of Blythe, California has been honored as the 2007 Chiropractor of the Year by the International Chiropractors Association (ICA). Dr. Maltby was presented the Association’s highest honor at ICA’s 81st Annual Meeting in Washington, DC on April 28, 2007.

A few weeks ago I began compiling a list of the top 100 chiropractors in the world. My intention when creating the list was to find out which doctors of chiropractic had been the most influential to doctors in practice today. In other words, who were (or are) the biggest movers and shakers in the chiropractic profession. The names that came back were mostly what I expected. Chiropractic leaders such as BJ Palmer, DD Palmer, Reggie Gold, Sid Williams, James Sigafoose, Sylvia Ashworth, Carl Cleveland, Ian Grassam, Tom Gelardi, Joe Flesia and Guy Riekeman have been suggested several times and the list continues to grow. It appears now though that we will be creating more than one list as a result of an experience I had this past weekend.
The path of least resistance, according to BJ Palmer, “is what makes rivers and men crooked.” When I choose to look honestly at my chiropractic practice and my life (as if I’m fooling me when I choose otherwise), I see the truth of that statement. All too often. And after 15 years on a principled path, it is humbling, to say the least, to discover areas in which I haven’t quite gotten “there” yet. Areas thru which I still tend to take the path of least resistance. I already knew about some of them, of course. But recently a few more have floated into my awareness, and sometimes I wonder if “there” is even possible to reach in this lifetime.
