The Buxton Technological Course in Painless Chiropractic
A. G. A. Buxton, D.C.


    PERIODICAL adjustments came into vogue in the early days of chiropractic, when a hard thrust was presumed to be necessary in order to work a cure, and sad to say, they continue until this day.  I have known people to resort to the use of liniments in order to relieve the soreness caused by the adjustment.

    With the course herein taught, I have given adjustments as often as ten times in one day and in one particular case, where a young man was brought to me in consultation with three other Chiropractors, I gave ten complete adjustments before the patient left the table.  This was a bad case of scoliosis upon which two Chiropractors had been working for three years and who were surprised to see the segments being adjusted easily and without the slightest uneasiness, or discomfort to the  patient, who upon rising from the table made the statement to all present that he “felt fine and believed now that he had found something that would straighten his back.”

    Turn to page 46 and note carefully the position of the spine in a case of this kind and you will see the intelligence of making adjustments in the way taught by The Buxton Technological Course.  Do not fear the giving of adjustments too often, according to your best judgment, by the technique you have learned herein.  Your patient wants to get well so stay by him and  nature will be at your service in her own natural way of moving these segments upon their facets.  You will be surprised how readily these mal-alignments are brought into submission by your skillful application.

    Another instance of some years ago was that of a typhoid fever patient, after the fever had been running for seven days, and the patient delirious.  I visited this case as many as eight times in one day and gave as many adjustments.  The malady soon yielded to my methods because they were applied as I am teaching you.

    Many other cases could be mentioned where adjustments close together brought on a speedy recovery.  Use your best judgment as to how often you should adjust your patient, but keep at it until the desired result is obtained.
