Chiropractic is attractive because it's simple.
By the second quarter in chiropractic college, many chiropractors have lost the simple elegance and minimalism of chiropractic. Obfuscated by technique, practice procedures, physiology and beneath layers of dogma and seminar rhetoric, many chiropractors emerge later as spinal therapists, medical doctor wannabes, patient pleasers or just confused.
The principles of chiropractic often take a backseat to the practice of chiropractic and the "how" of practice often eclipses the "why." In the process, patients rarely learn that their nervous system controls the whole show and reviving their ability to self heal, mediated by the nervous system is the focus of chiropractic care—not pain relief, posture restoration or even treating subluxations.
Obviously, this creates a major communication challenge. This week, resolve to tell the truth. And do it simply. Because as Einstein observed, "If you can't explain something simply, you don't understand it well enough."
