I don’t know the source of the material I’m sharing here today but I certainly thought it was worth sharing (it was worth me re-reading it as well – Guilty). I was in the garage cleaning out some old textbooks and notes from my days in chiropractic school and I came across this on two sheets of paper. It was amongst boxes of historical chiropractic information gathered over the years. I have a suspicion who the author is but I am verifying the information first.
Chiropractic is not the treatment of symptoms, nor is it the treatment of disease.
Chiropractic is not the treatment of symptoms, nor is it the treatment of disease. It is the correction of subluxations, which in turn is the separation of the spirit of man from flesh. It is the interference to the conductor of information which is being delivered to the tissue cell in the form of motion to be received as information. Physical therapy is not chiropractic, nor is acupuncture, massage, vitamin therapy, muscle manipulation, hypnosis or any other nosis.
When we begin to diagnose and treat conditions, we are into the practice of medicine, when we adjust the spine to correct nerve interference, thus allowing innate to do the minute setting of the vertebra, and allowing innate to do the healing, we are then practicing chiropractic at its fundamental best.
When the adjustment is made in the right place, with the right intent, though it takes less than a minute, we can depart, realizing it is now between that person and innate, or their personal God.
It may take more time than we wish or the recipient planned on, but time it will take. There must be time for replication, time for nerves to heal, time for the person to accept the changes that may go on as a result of the adjustment.
Far too many gurus are teaching the use of therapy, and the practice of psuedo medicine. There are far too many teaching: work fewer hours, use more modalities, and charge more money. They predicate that patient education and service aren’t as important. Yakking about everything but the value of the adjustment…. Saying oooh that was a good one… or, it’s loose now… or, doesn’t that feel better, doesn’t that feel good.
Sell the principle NOT the adjustment or some assumed garbage that appeared to be happening.
Banter, which has no place between the person and the chiropractor. Sell the principle NOT the adjustment or some assumed garbage that appeared to be happening. Let’s get real about what we do and why and share that with as many people as is possible. If some or many reject the idea, so what? The more you attempt to be rejected the less it will happen. Some will, some won’t so what, whose next?
Make a difference. Help change a sick and sorry society. Teach the Chiropractic principle.
