Philosophy is Not Confining


Some complain that the chiropractic philosophy is confining? A philosophy is made up of principles and laws which are not necessarily confining. Laws with penalties are designed to restrict the activity of people who do not have integrity. They are not intended for people with integrity. Those people will do what is right with or without laws. For me it does not matter how much or what the state says I can do. I choose to only Locate, Analyze, and Correct Vertebral Sublxations to enable the innate intelligence of the body to be more fully expressed. Doing less than the law allows is not confining. Wanting to do more than the law allows makes the law confining. That is why there is usually some type of penalty for violating a law. Our philosophy is a set of principles or laws derived from common sense, science, concensus, reason, etc. In practice you have to be philosophical. If you are philosophical, then there is nothing confining because the philosophy meets your own rational standards and the self imposed limitations designed to meet those standards.

    Sorry Joe, but I find the philosophy liberating. It allows me to do what I need to do without the burden of extended consequence. You see philosophically I know that if I move the bone and free the nerve the body will have more survival ability. Will innate be able to restore normalcy? I don’t know. What I do know is that that body will function better without a subluxation than it did with a subluxation. That my friend is enough for me. As BJ said ” The proper adjustment given at the right place at the right time is priceless” My greatest reward is knowing I have helped remove interference.

    Pretty much like the driver of a car on the NJT doing 50 in a 65 zone. He is not worried about speeding tickets as he is doing less than the law allows. He is annoying to some other drivers though. May be that’s why those of us who practice chiropractic according to its philosophy are annoying to the others who do not? 🙂
