is a virtue only when truth is served. The, "vertebral subluxation", is
a,"sacred cow", term that does not exist. Definitions per Medical
Dictionary: "Luxation: term denoting dislocation of a joint".
"Subluxation: term denoting partial dislocation". Vertebra cannot
subluxate unless bone break or parajoint structure is torn. It is an
obvious fact the architectural design of the pre and post zygapophysis
and vertebral bodies bound together by the ligaments and intervertebral
discs provide functional mobility with limits of restrictions that
cannot be exceeded without dislocation.
|Other joints devoid of the
interlocking designs of vertebra can and do subluxate. Such subluxation
is common between the occipital condyles and atlas lateral masses (the
O/A joints) and between the sacroiliac articulations, rib heads and
joints of the extremities, but not between vertebra.
need to be maintained until the subluxation is eliminated. The priority
of adjustment/manipulation technique has been grossly neglected in the
past and present spine straightening techniques.
|Yet the cause of the health problem
is not recognized as NSI simply because the health care professions have
centered their attention on the adaptive consequences of subluxations.
|The sick world is
sorely in need of NSI specialists and for the chiropractors to upgrade
their clinical technology as explained above.
|Some progress in clinical technology
has been made since 1895 in vertebral manipulation but the arts of
eliminating NSI as identified herein has escaped attention except for
our research these past few years.
|We have focused our
attention on eliminating NSI in the specific categories mentioned above
and have the clinical records that prove its success. We no longer even
try to adjust vertebra. We do adjust subluxations of the O/A joints,
the sacroiliac joints and other subluxations of the skeletal frame and
use specific manipulation for any joint or complex of joints to restore
the ROM caused from the compensations from subluxations or trauma. We
have learned the compensations of subluxations
must be maintained until the subluxations have been eliminated and then
the compensations need to be addressed by constructive manipulation.
Also the skills of subluxation correction
have not been reliably developed and therefore
the primary cause of mechanical NSI has not been eliminated except by
the various manipulative techniques that have inadvertently lessened the
nerve insults on a random basis.
|We live in an age of rapidly
expanding technology. Our clinical technology of eliminating NSI is a
remarkable improvement over any procedures taught today. Failures of
yesterday respond to this improved technology and are constantly telling
us how much they appreciate their new found quality of life and ask us
to furnish them with the names and addresses of doctors we have taught
so they can refer friends and relatives to this improved quality of
health care. If your goal includes getting sick people well, then
please join us in this noble service. See
