|The Woes Of Chiropractic
By James Sigafoose, D.C.
The greatest problem we have in chiropractic is the failure to have a clear understanding of chiropractic and ourselves. There are those who think chiropractic is a therapy to treat symptoms and disease, others think it ought to include the use of drugs, casting and sutures, as if medicine and osteopathy did not exist.
The principle and philosophy of chiropractic aren't taught at all in some schools. And in others, it is barely touched upon. Thus, the major part of chiropractic is without direction, as to the reasons why chiropractic is different, and is considered a separate & distinct science, art and philosophy. Many young graduates are afraid to enter into practice, and many others are failing. As a result we have many management groups attempting to teach everything that should have been taught and mastered in school.
Chiropractic is not a therapy, nor is it to treat symptoms, and disease. It is to locate and correct vertebral subluxations that are interfering with the expression of principle, within the body. In reality, we prepare the body to receive the healing from God, of any disease known, and not known, if we are specific, loving with proper intent, and realize that only God does the healing ultimately.
The subluxation interferes with the nerve and reduces mental impulse. Because of pressure on the brain stem, the all or none law is executed and thus we have millions or trillions of fibers not firing to various parts of the body, and of course those parts are in a state of dysfunction, and can replicate abnormally, which is a bit more serious then the musculoskeletal problems chiropractors seem to have limited themselves to.
Education of the recipient of care is mandatory to get them to understand what and why we do what we do. Education of the chiropractor is mandatory, so that they may educate the recipient. Find a mentor and learn how to think correctly, and to apply the philosophy of chiropractic, with the clear understanding of the relationship of Universal Intelligence and Innate.
When we are careful whom we rent the upstairs to, and learn to make constructive choices, we can then improve our environment, and make great change. When we can have certainty in our principle, our technique, and ultimately ourselves, we can move on and have everything we want, we just can't have everything. Procedure has to be based on education of the reasons why, and videos are a great help, then at least each week a short lesson, on what we do, what we don't do, and why, thus we have a long-term relation with our people and can make lasting differences in their lives.
