Two friends of mine happen to be fellow chiropractors from the St Louis area. One is an Upper Cervical chiropractor; the other is a Full Spine chiropractor. Interestingly enough, both of these men had newborn sons recently, just a few weeks apart.
I met with each of them for lunch, and of course got to hear all the stories about how wonderful it is to be a father. I asked each doctor the same question – “Have you adjusted your son yet?”
The Upper Cervical dad’s response was this: “I’ve checked him periodically, but so far he’s only needed one adjustment.”
The Full Spine dad’s response was: “Oh yeah, I adjust him all the time!”
Now I’m not suggesting that these answers are right or wrong… They simply reveal a very telling example of how two chiropractors can approach patient care differently.
And I’d like to hear your input on this issue… As a patient, which doctor’s approach to chiropractic care makes more sense to you?
