    Sometimes I don’t know where people’s common sense is, John.
    I learned from my friend a few days ago (who is a long time patient of my chiropractor) that my chiropractor and his assistant had both got their first vaccines. My friend said that it was because they had to in order treat his cancer patients. And my chiropractor had also expressed to my friend that they wanted him to get the boosters as well. My friend didn’t have any more information than that.
    And I don’t know exactly who it is who wanted him to get the vaccines. His cancer patients themselves or maybe their medical doctors? I may be tempted to pry next time I go in.
    But I was surprised to learn this. My chiropractor seems to know his profession well. I would have thought that he would have had more common sense. I would have thought that he would have been more knowledgable, and would have fought something like that from happening. Although it does sound like there was some hesitancy on his part, but I don’t think he wanted to turn down his cancer patients.
    But hell, what about his own life!
    They seem to find a way to snaggle people into taking the jabs one way or another!

      Unfortunately, Lisa, there are many chiropractors out there that are medically oriented and big supporters of the medical paradigm. Within chiropractic, there is a huge divide between the practitioners.

      I have met some chiropractors in my career who were more medical-based in their approach to caring for patients than some medical doctors.

      You can’t assume that a practitioner is truly holistic in their thinking unless you interview them and know the right questions to ask.

      We chiropractors all graduate with the same degree and become licensed to work within a practice scope that is very wide.

      Many chiropractors are practicing medicine and legally doing so under many state laws.

        Thank you for your response, John. It does seem like there is a wide range of different types of chiropractors.
        I guess I’ll just be happy that mine has helped me with my problems and I continue to improve.
        I do believe that it is an extraordinary profession. I know many people who go to a chiropractor. And to think it took me this long to visit one myself.
        Although, John, I think you may have had an influence on me in my choosing this path of wellness as well! 🙂

        You are welcome, Lisa. I am glad your chiropractor has helped you. 👍🙂

    John, as long as we are talking Chiropractic care…
    Is there any truth to what my wife is hearing that a Chiropractic doctor can help alleviate knee pain?

    • Dr. John Reizer November 2, 2022 / 1:45 am

      You know, Kenneth, when someone asks me a question about chiropractic, people who know me and are nearby moan because they know I can and will speak for long periods on this subject.

      In a nutshell, traditional chiropractic is performed by chiropractors to correct bony misalignments in the spinal column that inhibit the expression of nerve functions throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems.

      Most of the nerves in the spine do not affect or cause pain in the body, but greatly affect the expressions of body physiology. In other words, the nerves being compressed by spinal misalignments are often not perceived as pain by patients. The nerve interference may however inhibit the functions of vital organs that are essential to our health.

      There are some spinal nerves in the lower back that can cause leg and even knee pain if compressed. So, in some circumstances, knee and leg pain can be alleviated by spinal adjustments. But this is not the professional objective of chiropractic.

      Keep in mind, many things can cause knee pain that chiropractic adjustments in the spine will not affect.

      Some chiropractors can realign knee joints that have become misaligned, but these procedures are more orthopedic in nature than they are chiropractic.

        Ahhh – good to know. Thank you, John.

        I for one know a bit about back injuries and Chiropractic care. It’s been many years but I will be looking into getting my neck and shoulder looked at soon. A pinched nerve has been bothering me for quite some time and I don’t like it anymore (never really like it at all) 😉

        This is great information that you wrote about chiropractic care, John! I printed it off.
        Also, have you heard of TENS Units, (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) ?
        “It is a method of pain relief involving the use of a mild electrical current. A TENS machine is a small, battery-operated device that has leads connected to stick pads called electrodes.”
        “The electrical impulses can reduce the pain signals going to the spinal cord and the brain, which may help relieve pain and relax muscles. They may also stimulate the production of endorphins, which are the bodies natural painkillers.”
        My chiropractor uses a TENS Unit on me everytime I go in. In addition, to his chiropractic care. And I like it so much that I bought two of my own. One from my chiropractor’s office, and one from Amazon.
        I believe them to be helpful with reducing pain. And it helps get the blood circulating which aids in healing.
        Kenneth, you and your wife might benefit from this device. You can place them anywhere on the body. And the price range is not bad, it can go from $30.00 to nearly $100.00.

      • Dr. John Reizer November 2, 2022 / 2:04 pm

        I am well aware of the TENS technology, Lisa! Thanks for sharing! 👍🙂

        I figured such, John. But I wanted to ask. 👍🙂
