Many years ago a person had a low back pain which sent a sharp pain radiating down his
left leg. So he went to see a Chiropractor. The doc took a look at the patient, poked around at his spine for quite awhile, then told the person that he had a subluxation of the 5th lumbar vertebra that needed to be adjusted. Sounded like the doc knew what he was talking about, so
the person went along with this, got adjusted and left the office minus the back pain.
Flash forward to 2015. Same person, same low back pain radiating down his left leg. So he
went to see a Chiropractor. The doc took a look at the patient, did some unusual tests, then
asked the person if he takes vitamins on a regular basis. The patient said no so the doc prescribed a vitamin program to handle this back problem. The doc sounded like he knew what he was talking about, so he purchased the vitamins and left the office with the back pain.
A few days later the leg pain became unbearable so he went to see a different Chiropractor. The doctor took a look at him, did some unusual tests, told the person that he believed that he has a low back strain and suggested a treatment program of physical therapy. The doctor sounded like he knew what he was talking about, so he purchased a six week physical therapy program, started treatment, and left the office with the low back pain. A week later the low back pain was getting worse. The person wondered why nobody had suggested an adjustment but were emphasizing other forms of treatment. I mean, they sure sounded liked
they knew what they were talking about, yet he wasn't getting the result that he wanted, which was no low back pain.
Moral of the story: True knowledge will give a correct emphasis and only a theoretical knowledge will give a wrong emphasis. The health professions today are absolutely strewn with wrong emphasis. And you can keep moving something farther and further afield with wrong emphasis, up to a point where the technology practically gets lost. Wrong emphasis, wrong emphasis. Maddening. And you wonder how a Chiropractic College could possible close up. If this rings a bell, you might really be interested in the money made by those who use fear to lead people away from the true dope in order to fill their own coffers. Check out The Truth About Cancer on the internet, I did and was amazed at how ignorant I had become about what is really going on in health care today. Time to start emphasizing the truth.
