On Being a Health Care Profession

1

Chiropractic is unique and arguably  outside the so-called health care
professions.  The fact is that a metaphysical aberration, an interference with
the transmission of metaphysical,  mental impulses (the 4th criteria of Palmer’s definition) is part of the profession’s
objective. That is not only not part of “mainstream health care’s”  professional objective,
for the most part they ridicule that objective.  Focusing on the anatomical and
physiological aspects and ignoring the metaphysical aspect destroys the
uniqueness of chiropractic. There is nothing wrong with chiropractic being part
of the health care profession as long as those other professions are willing to
agree that just addressing the physical for the purpose of changing the
physical and doing that to meet the desires of a profession’s objective solely
in the physical realm is not all there is to health care.

    Hey Joe,
    “There is nothing wrong with chiropractic being part
    of the health care profession as long as those other professions…”
    Hasn’t it always been the public that wanted us in, in spite of the “other” professions. Since when do we need their approval. Personally, I enjoy being separate and unique. Hey it’s a great job and somebody gets to do it, us.
