I received word via text message about an hour ago that legendary chiropractor Reggie Gold has passed away. Reggie was undoubtedly one of the most influential chiropractors to ever walk the planet. He will be greatly missed.

Structure is always related to function. You must alter structural design to change the function. A vertebral subluxation is a change in the structure of the body. Changing the structure of the body, changes the function of the body. If you alter the structure of the body, with a vertebral subluxation, you alter the function of the body.
Every vertebral subluxation without exception has a negative effect upon the body, not necessarily upon the symptoms of the body. This focus on symptoms has choked and destroyed the chiropractors ability to know his own profession.
Symptoms are not the first stage of disease. Doesn’t it make sense to keep a person subluxation free all the time whether they have a symptom or not?
You don’t know your sick until you manifest symptoms, and by the time you manifest symptoms the sickness is already well advanced. You must know that when there is a vertebral subluxation, whether you can find symptoms or not, the body is not perfect. The body cannot function perfectly in the presence of a vertebral subluxation. And incidently, a subluxation also interferes with mental health, with spiritual health, with speed, with stamina. What the hell is this linking chiropractic to medical symptoms?
