by Dr. Amir Rashidian, Chiropractor

About 13 years ago I was practicing in an urgent care center. I had the basement clinic and the urgent care center was above me. One day they had a new doctor. I went upstairs to type up the report and this doctor started asking me, “What is chiropractic?”.

I spent time explaining what chiropractic was. I went through the science of it, the fact that chiropractic is based on balancing a neurologic system, taking pressure off the spinal cord by balancing the spine and improving brain function, organ function, gland function, increasing the function of the immune system. I explained all of this to him and his response was, “You know what Doc, we can do the same thing with medication. Why do we need chiropractic?”

Turns out, that why he was really asking was that he had a problem in his neck and it was bothering him, it had been bothering him for years. I said, “Come downstairs. Let me check your neck. Let’s see what we find.”

We went downstairs and I did a thorough evaluation. I found a subluxation. A subluxation is a neurologic disturbance because of the spinal misalignment. We found it. I had him lie down on the bed. I checked it. I adjusted it. He stood up. Almost like he had tears in his eyes, he said, “Wow, it feels like a load has been lifted of my neck and shoulders. That’s amazing. There’s no way you can explain that.”

That’s the last time I saw him for two weeks. Two weeks later, I locked the door to my office. I get into my car. I’m getting ready to pull out. He comes, pulls in, comes to a screeching halt behind my car, blocks me in, jumps out, says, “Doc, can you give me one more adjustment. I need another one.”

Bottom line, chiropractic isn’t something you explain. It’s something you experience. Make sure you experience it.
