Therapeutic v. Traditional Chiropractic


The only difference between the mixer and the traditional chiropractor is the means or the tools by which each group desires to accomplish their identical objective, addressing disease or its supposed cause. The mixer wants to use every tool (including medical diagnosis, referral, therapies, and in the future-drugs), the traditional chiropractor wants to confine his efforts to the correction of the vertebral subluxation (sometimes) by hand only. Both desire to address disease or its perceived cause.

    The challenge is: HOW do we reach and include both camps so we can demonstrate to them that there is so much more to chiropractic than what they may think.

      Claude, I’m not sure we can. I think that all we can do is discern and explain how we understand that discernment. Discerning means judging, however it does not mean condemning which is so often and aptly pointed out by you. I think there are more and better ways that we can point out and explain that discernment to those that are willing to listen and learn.
