When you get a paper cut, the logical thing to do (after getting over the intense pain) is clean it up and put a Band Aid on it to protect it from getting irritated. After a few days when the bandage comes off, the cut is hardly noticeable. The question is, did the Band Aid do the healing?
Band Aids and Chiropractic Adjustments have something in common… neither one has the ability to heal you. Both are helpful after an injury, but they can only provide an environment conducive for healing to take place. Band Aids approximate damaged skin to optimize the healing, adjustments approximate misaligned vertebrae to optimize nerve flow – but it’s the innate healing power of Life inside you that scripts the repair.
The next time you come for an adjustment to immediately ease your headache, your sciatica or your sleeping problems, understand it’s not the adjustment that produces the result. Chiropractors don’t perform miracles. The doctor inside you is the one who does that work.
