    Was DD’s discovery a stumble or an observation or both?
    as an aside – If our leaders were only like Churchill (my opinion)
    “I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.” – Sorry, that one just caught my eye 🙂

      That was a good Churchill quote. My recollection is that Lady Astor was the recipient of that one and also one of my favorites:
      Lady Astor: Winston, if I was married to you I would put poison in your tea.
      Churchill: Lady Astor, if you were married to me, I would drink it.

      David, you wrote “Was DD’s discovery a stumble or an observation or both?”I believe it was both. As Churchill said, anyone can stumble across a truth. But it takes genius to recognize it as such and utilize it. DD’s problem, in my opinion, was that he utilized it in the frame of reference of the day, addressing medical conditions. He did improve upon the medical model of the day by addressing cause rather than effects. But he never quite got to the non-therapeutic, objective, chiropractic truth. It took almost 80 years to discover that truth. But it is built upon what he stumbled upon and observed. For that,NTOSC owes him and his son a debt of gratitude.

    In a way, most people, without knowing what OSC is, Stumble into our practices. It’s up to us NTOSC’ers to catch them and let them know that something Did just happen.
