ADJUSTMENTS AND THEIR REPETITION
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.”

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
