Perhaps a confession can help clear the air so there's no misunderstanding.
But let me say a few other things, first.
Forty-nine years ago something happened that changed my life forever.
At the time I was 20 years old, a fry cook, and I was not happy. I was
tired, depressed and had recurring headaches that made life not worth
living. I started eating more natural food and felt some better, and then
a friend talked me into seeing his doctor. The doctor did an exam and
then "adjusted" my spine. The adjustment didn't hurt, it actually
felt good. Soon afterward, my headaches were pretty much gone and I felt
wonderful: the tiredness and depression had disappeared.
By the way, the doctor was a chiropractor.
Chiropractic worked so well for me that I went to chiropractic school
myself a couple of years later, even though my father and grandfather
were medical doctors. (Right here in Monument, incidentally, and, yes,
my dad became a regular chiropractic patient.)
Now people come to see me with their headaches and feeling bad. They also come to me with
their arthritis, neck
pain, shoulder / arm pain and wrist
/ hand pain, whiplash, backaches, sciatica, numbness
in the hands / feet / limbs, TMJ problems, athletic injuries, menstrual
problems and digestive problems, ADD,
just to name a few. Many come simply to optimize their well-being!
Several times a day patients thank me for helping them, but I can’t
really take the credit. My confession is that I’ve never
healed anyone of anything. What we do is perform specific spinal, cranial and other adjustments to remove nerve pressure
and relax the nervous system. The body responds by healing itself.
We get great results. It’s as simple as that.
