The Buxton Technological Course
in Painless Chiropractic
A. G. A. Buxton, D.C.
WHY THE BUXTON TECHNOLOGICAL COURSE
During my many years as a practitioner and my travel
over the field teaching the profession a painless technique, I have found
from both Chiropractor and layman that the only thing that would save our
noble science from becoming a lost art is to have a more comfortable method
I have taught hundreds of Chiropractors in the last
two years how to adjust painlessly and have yet to hear one speak favorably
of the older systems. Many and many of them have told me time and
time again that unless chiropractic adjustments can be given in a less
severe manner, they feared that the science would lose its great hold upon
The laymen have repeatedly complained and scores
have given up visiting the Chiropractor’s office on account of the adjustments
hurting. This fact they have published to their friends and inquirers
and such publicity has done untold damage in keeping hundreds of people
away and robbing our offices of many patients that should have returned.
The out-spoken language of the public in general
is that we do hurt when we adjust them, hence whatever good we may be able
to do them must remain unaccomplished unless we have them present to work
upon. What a pity all this is, when we hold within our hands
the power to do suffering humanity so much good, and how anxious every
Chiropractor ought to be to give his patients the very best and to acquire
a technique that would not discommode the patient and give him results
in much less time.
The very reasons given above are what prompted me
to prepare such a curriculum The Buxton Technological Course in Painless
Another great obstacle to having universal painless
chiropractic is that most of the systems invented have been so high priced
as to be beyond the reach of many practitioners, not because they were
so great in technique, but because of making the inventor quick money.
It is therefore my intention to put my course of
training in Painless Chiropractic at the lowest price possible as I want
that all shall possess it and be able to give to their patients the very
best. My heart was saddened more than once when I found Chiropractors
pay for a system that ought to have been given at a much less figure, and
that they could pay for without borrowing money to do so.
If I have something that is beneficial for a few
Chiropractors why should it not be given to the struggling practitioner
at a price within his reach, whose purse is not weighted down with remuneration
because of a large practice.
I am sure, therefore, that my many friends in the Chiropractic
Profession will appreciate my efforts to impart to them my methods and knowledge
in the way of painless adjusting, and to do this at a price that will give me
a fair profit for my labors and so low that the poorest in purse can buy.
