Adapting to Chiropractic
The first chiropractic seminar I attended was in January of 1981 as I was doing research for what became the profession’s first patient education videos.
I still remember a huge insight from that three-day Renaissance seminar: the nervous system is the master system that controls and regulates every cell, tissue, organ and system of the body.
You know this. In fact you probably take it for granted. But trust me, most patients have never heard this essential, dot-connecting piece of information.
More troubling is the other takeaway I gleaned 31 years ago on the second floor of the Davenport Hotel in Spokane, Washington: the nervous system is responsible for our ability to adapt to the environment. Again. I know. Obvious. But rarely are patients presented with this simple physiological precept in a chiropractic practice.
The reason I bring this up is to ask this. Have you adapted your practice to chiropractic and its principles, or do you attempt to practice by making chiropractic adapt to you?
