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.
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.
