At Last: The Hidden Factor that Causes Vertebral Subluxations to Occur and Recur

Since I started in chiropractic about 40 years ago, I have been troubled by the vertebral subluxation. It’s not that I question whether subluxations exist. The problem is that I can feel subluxations, but I don’t understand what’s going on and why they happen.

The Kinetic Chain of Lateral Joints

The lateral joints of the body are the most mobile, complex, and subject to injury. They form a deceptively interrelated chain of movement and function in which malfunction of one component often does affect the others. The kinetic chain of lateral joints consists of the temporomandibular joint, shoulder, sacroiliac, hip, knee, ankle, and foot joints.

The Chiropractic Stress Evaluation

You might ask why do chiropractors need a stress exam? First, I believe our profession desperately needs a simple, convenient, noninvasive test with which the public can easily identify. Second, stress is something that everyone experiences to a greater or lesser extent, and the public does not associate chiropractic with treating stress.

“Gifted” Practitioners and Interoception

There has always been a small percent of “gifted” practitioners who have developed exceptional perception skills and been able to perceive subtle physiological changes that most other practitioners don’t perceive. Until recently, neuroscience wasn’t able to explain why only a limited number of practitioners have been able to develop these exceptional abilities.
