E Pluribus Unum is a hopefully familiar phrase. It is found on our coins and means, “Out of many, one.” Besides being the original motto of the United States, it also applies nicely to chiropractic philosophy. Looking out for me We are made of trillions of cells and in our body; those cells have essentially […]
The correction of subluxation for the removal of interference to the mental impulse and the philosophy behind is often a new or poorly understood concept for many in the public who view chiropractic as a treatment for neck and back pain. Subluxation centered chiropractors work diligently to educate their patients about subluxation and the philosophy behind their care. Analogies can be a useful tool to help educate those patients.
We really do need each other. Chiropractors benefit when they join together with other chiropractors of like mind. Certainly, in PSCA membership, there are numerous benefits in belonging to an organization centered, from a vitalistic perspective, on the correction of vertebral subluxation.
Over a decade of design advances have happened since I have last been in the car market. Many of
those advances are now standard safety features which grace most models, from blind spot indicators,

Chiropractic philosophy is the basis for the “why” of what we do as chiropractors. We (hopefully) study chiropractic philosophy in chiropractic college and if not, many chiropractors found a way to learn it on their own from reading the green books, books by modern chiropractic philosophers, seminars, or small study groups.
We adjust vertebral subluxation giving opportunity for innate intelligence to respond and remove the interference thus beginning the restoration cycle.
In chiropractic, every chiropractor, organization and college shares a similar set of freedoms and constraints. The freedoms give all three the opportunity to define chiropractic and act upon that definition as they practice it, teach it or support it. The constraints, on the other hand, imposed on all three from outside sources, limit the expression […]
