A principle, by definition, is a fundamental truth or law of explanation. If you take some time to peruse the following link describing the
"33 Principles of Chiropractic", you will learn that these are the basic "laws of explanation" of what chiropractic is all about. Therefore, a principled chiropractor is one who focuses his practice and the patient experience on adherence to those truths.

In a nutshell, this would entail a chiropractor who does spinal analysis for the presence of vertebral subluxation and accompanying nerve interference, and who utilizes various chiropractic adjusting techniques to address the subluxations with the intent of reducing nerve interference. Because the nervous system controls all aspects of human existence, the resulting physiological changes that occur with the reduction of nerve interference is the health benefit of this interaction. This response is not controlled by the chiropractor, but by the patient's own innate intelligence. As such, no two patients will respond to the same practitioner or technique in the same manner, as we are all unique.

Bottom line?
A principled chiropractor treats the patient's subluxation, not the presenting condition or symptomatic experience.



I am a Chiropractor working with the sciences of the universe by turning on the life thru the art of the adjustment.  I do not prescribe, treat, or diagnose conditions.  I use only my hands.  I work with that "mysterious something" which created my body from two cells.

At a time prescribed aeons ago, I was set in this body to experience.  That cosmic power which created me, which also moves the seas, rotates the earth, directs the heavens, gives life, takes it away, is everything.  And that power which set the universe in motion and created me did not abandon me when I came free of the security of my earthy mother's womb.  It is still with me and protects me as it moves all forms toward their final predestined goal.

It is not mine to educatedly ask "why" or "where", but to Innately live; and live to help my fellow creatures.  And with this Chiropractic adjustment, I use all the powers and energies moving this universe, to allow my fellow creatures the chance to live free of dis-ease.

I wish nothing in return, only the chance to GIVE.  I give with the only thing I have, LOVE.  And I love all by removing that which interferes with 100% LIFE.  I do not look to others for direction, I look within.  I am a perfect expression of God living 24 hours each day for others.
