CHAPTER III
SUPPLY AND DEMAND IN CHIROPRACTIC

 

    THE great science of chiropractic has aroused the thinking public, as well as the student of research, to seek knowledge as to the cause and effect in human ailments, relative to abnormalities and disease, with an earnestness equal to that expended in any branch of learning, and this curiosity is not becoming lessened by any means.  The scrutinizing eye of the many who suffer and who have been duped by all sorts of quackery is open wide to the fact that chiropractic does go after the cause and has amazingly produced relief.

    The demand, therefore, for the skilled Chiropractor is greater than the supply.  People are not looking for theory, they are wanting results and results are obtained when the Chiropractic Doctor adapts his practice to common sense rules, yet scientific manipulation in adjusting the vertebrae.  When a uniform method of Painless Chiropractic is practically adopted by the profession, the universal demand for the Chiropractic Doctor will create a permanency for service unequalled in the history of our healing art.

    Let the reader study well the illustrated methods given herein, and practice them until thoroughly familiar with every move.  Then he or she will realize advancement and receive due praise and remuneration from those who come to their office to get well.  When a person unacquainted with chiropractic is induced by a friend to give it a trial, the first statement made by the inquirer is that Chiropractors hurt.  The next is a question as to what school the Chiropractor graduated from.  What is the reason for all this regarding a Chiropractor?  First, because he has hurt others by severe adjustments.  He has helped some, that is true, but his remedy for getting folks well is more feared than the disease.  Second, because the Chiropractor has been controlled by just what knowledge he acquired at school, without investigating for himself or thinking independently, thus confining himself to the satisfaction of methods first learned.  Chiropractors are usually known by their methods of adjusting, while the medical men are uniform, inasmuch as they all give about the same kind of  pills.

    If we could have a uniform chiropractic based upon painless adjustments the  public would look upon our profession as one and the same thing, varying only in degree of the artistic and scientific application of our remedy.  This can be done and will be don, since the thinking, studious chiropractic mind is turned in that direction, and hundreds are already giving painless adjustments thereby realizing speedy and remarkable results.

    The Demand creates the Supply and when efficiency in service is rendered, the Supply creates the Demand.
