You’ve graduated from Chiropractic college, opened your office and had the normal “run of the mill” backache, headache, sciatica cases. You gotten better results with these patients than anyone before you. Your confidence level continues to rise.
Then it happens….the phone rings. On the other end is a mother in whose voice you detect absolute desperation. “Doctor….my father is a patient of yours. He suggested I give you a call. It’s our daughter….she’s nine years old. We’ve tried everything….she has Brights Disease and has been given no more than 30 days to live. My dad said Chiropractic might be able to help her. “Do you think you can help her?”What will you do?
This is a true case…it did happen. This 25 year old doctor was convinced “if the body is sick it has subluxations causing that sickness, remove the subluxation and the body will restore itself to a healthy state so long as the disease process has not exceeded the limitations of matter.”
The first thing he did was pull out his Merck’s Manual and try to find out what in the world it was this child had. Didn’t take long to discover her disease was indeed a killer…her kidneys were not filtering properly. Her body was poisoning itself to death on its own waste.
He examined and x-rayed this child who was brought to his office on a stretcher. She was so weak she couldn’t walk on he own…could barely talk. Through his Chiropractic training he determined the problem was at the area of T-9, T-10. He followed Parker procedure, gave a written report recommending daily adjustments for 3 weeks, adjustments 3 times per week for another 6 weeks then re-examination/re-evaluation. He also advised the parents to continue with medical monitoring so as to track her response. The parents agreed. After all what did they have to lose?
Within 3 weeks this child was up and around. Her medical doctors were flabbergasted…all her blood/urine tests were now normal. She was playing with her siblings and friends, riding her bicycle and back in school. She would come to the doctors clinic bringing her cat Tom in the front bicycle basket so he could get his “bingo” (adjustment).
The moral of this true case is Chiropractic Works…It Gets Results….and that’s all that matters. Please don’t pigeon hole yourself into a position of being a “back doctor, neck doctor, whiplash doctor.” Chiropractic is so much more than that. You are so much better than that. As you proceed with your mission, talent and destiny do so acting with loving service based on free will, react with faith based on Gods will.
When that call comes and the question is “doctor, do you think you can help me?”
What will YOU Do?
Makes no difference whether you think you can or think you can’t…you are right. Choice is yours!
