The enemy of my enemy…


Just because people or organizations are against what we are against such as, outside-in thinking, addressing effects rather than cause, performing certain medical procedures or treating certain medical conditions  or diseases, doesn’t mean they are with us. We cannot count on anyone else but us to get our message out to the world.

    Which is why it’s so important to “educate” our patients to the reality of Chiropractic; each one that gets the picture becomes one of us. A patient was looking at her phone when I walked in to the adjustment room Friday. She said, “Doc, look at all these Groupons for Chiropractors” and she opened one for me. It was very pretty and high tech & offered a free examination and 30 minute massage for X dollars. I asked her to open another, same basic thing, some sort of exam and some type of massage for a small amount of cash with a much larger “retail price”. She said, “If I want a massage I’m not going to look at Chiropractor’s ads; I go to the Chiropractor because I want to get an adjustment”. Warmed my heart.

    There is also a flip side to this, I’m sure many have read or heard this before.
    First they came for the Socialists (medipractors), and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Socialist.
    Then they came for the Trade Unionists (mixers), and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews (TSC), and I did not speak out– Because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for me (OSC)–and there was no one left to speak for me.

    Somehow we need to respect those other (DCs) in our profession , but as you said we just can’t expect them to do our job.
