Non-Therapeutic Chiropractic--What Is It?
"The truth in Chiropractic is that if you have a subluxation you'd be better off without it. The non therapeutic model, is not about wellness, is not about health and and it is not about sickness.
Non-therapeutic, "objective straight" chiropractic is both more true to the founder's ideology and more modern of the two approaches. This group of chiropractors defines chiropractic by one simple objective. This objective does not duplicate the disease treatment objective of medicine. It deals with a particular, common situation called a vertebral subluxation--a silent spinal blockage between brain and body.
These two groups of chiropractors, like many in other branches of the healthcare system, have very different points of view and different objectives, although both have the title chiropractor. It is important that you be able to distinguish between the two so you can seek the type of services you want. You need to understand very clearly that the practice objectives of therapeutic mixed chiropractic and non-therapeutic objective straight chiropractic are quite different.

Chiropractic today is a far different creature then was originally intended. Like most professions, it has evolved over the years. The more we advance, the more we understood just how much some of the early chiropractors were ahead of their day.
"Therapeutic" chiropractors (other terms include mechanistic, mixer, or musculoskeletal), essentially treat a diagnosed condition, much like medical doctors. Most often they focus on pain. Frequently they minimize the adjustment, or tell you to just come in when you have an "ache." They use machines and zappers and shakers and lasers. I know. I used to be one. We accepted insurance, treated workmen's comp, and accepted personal injury cases. However, several educators and mentors along with ongoing education in chiropractic made me give it all up gladly. In spite of all the fancy machines and fancy paperwork, it became my belief that much of it was entertaining patients while the body healed itself.
