Sherman Philosophy of Straight Chiropractic
Straight chiropractic espouses the vitalistic philosophy of life and health, and is defined as the art and science of locating, analyzing and correcting vertebral subluxation in accordance with that philosophy.

Straight chiropractic is based on the premise that living things have an innate striving toward organization, and that vertebral subluxation is an abnormal, but most often correctable, condition which interferes with the expression of that striving.
