Chi­ro­prac­tic Fea­tured In Sci­ence & Med­i­cine Mag­a­zine

The pres­ti­gious “Sci­ence & Med­i­cine” mag­a­zine pub­lished its first chi­ro­prac­tic arti­cle in the Sep­tem­ber /​Octo­ber 1999 issue. The arti­cle, writ­ten by Tedd Koren, D.C., was pub­lished in a series of arti­cles the mag­a­zine called, “Com­ple­men­tary and Alter­na­tive Med­i­cine.” The arti­cle itself cov­ers a vari­ety of issues in chi­ro­prac­tic from the his­tory of chi­ro­prac­tic to the under­stand­ing of subluxation.

One of the more notable areas of the arti­cle was a por­tion that listed three of the “vital­is­tic” views held by chi­ro­prac­tors. These were listed as:

  • The body is intel­li­gent and behaves in a pur­pose­ful way. Some­thing inside liv­ing crea­tures causes them to respond and learn.
  • Ill­ness is reac­tive, cura­tive response, and symp­toms are ben­e­fi­cial phe­nom­ena that should not be sup­pressed or eliminated.
  • Vital­ist ther­a­peu­tics seeks to strengthen the patient pow­ers of resis­tance and com­pen­sate for a pre­dis­po­si­tion to become ill.
  • Per­haps one of the best por­tions of the arti­cle was when Dr. Koren listed the many types of prob­lems peo­ple come to chi­ro­prac­tors for. After recit­ing this long list he summed the care up by say­ing, “It must be remem­bered that the pur­pose of the spinal adjust­ment is cor­rec­tion of the Ver­te­bral Sub­lux­a­tion Com­plex, not the treat­ment of these var­i­ous dis­or­ders.” Dr. Koren con­cludes by quot­ing the founder of chi­ro­prac­tic, Dr. D.D. Palmer, “Pres­sure on nerves causes irri­ta­tion and ten­sion with deranged func­tions as a result. Why not release the pres­sure? Why not adjust causes instead of treat­ing effects? Why not?”
