If you came home, turned on the bank of switches in your hallway and noticed none of the lights came on in the back portion of your house, would you a) change out all the light bulbs that didn’t go on or b) go to the breaker panel in your basement to see which fuse blew? Obviously it would be smarter to take a trip to the basement first.

It makes sense to focus on the source of the problem rather than chase each individual malfunction. Likewise, in your body when you experience multiple malfunctions… would it also make more sense to check the ‘breakers’ in your nerve system for the source of the problem first before medicating the issue?

Therein lies the difference between mainstream health care and chiropractic. While everyone is entitled to more than one health issue or symptom, treating each one individually with drugs and surgery is really no different than changing all the light bulbs. Why not check your ‘electrical breakers’ for a common source (subluxation)?
