012: SigTalks – What Is The Purpose of Chiropractic

With your host, Dr. Carey Pabouet-Sigafoose.

There are moments in my life when I understand chiropractic much better then other times and this is one of those moments. Don’t get me wrong, I know what we do as chiropractors, I have known all my life, for example when I was a child and the school wanted us to be vaccinated and I wouldn’t let them or when I got sick at school at the age of 6 and I asked the school nurse if I could go home to get adjusted, but then there are just moments like listening to this. Listening to my father explain the purpose of chiropractic and understanding that we as chiropractors still have so much to do and so much more to learn.

It floors me that even today we only see 3-10% or the population on our own continent and less then 1% of the population of the entire planet. It astounds me that even today we as chiropractors a still fighting each other as to what the purpose of chiropractic is. I love the part of this audio where Dr. Sig says he does not speak for any one group or association within chiropractic, especially seeing that the ACA has just taken the stance that drugs should be allowed within our profession. I love that my father says he learned chiropractic because he learned the principal of chiropractic.
