"We never know how far reaching something we may think, say, or do today will effect the lives of millions tomorrow." - Dr. B. J. Palmer
At the moment we make an adjustment, we have no idea what the end result may be. Our intent is to remove the subluxation to let innate flow through the body as intended. The immediate response can be the relief of pain, better mobility, return of function or no outward change at all.
But what is the long term result of an adjustment??? What is the impact on the quality of life for someone that has been unable to do even the simplest task due to prolonged pain. What is the impact to that persons family when they are not able to play with their children, be close to a spouse, share in the joy of life because they are struggling to move normally about the home. what is the impact to the mother whose infant is not sleeping for more than a few minutes at a time.
How can you measure the impact that that adjustment had when the baby now sleeps for several hours after being adjusted. How do you measure the impact on the family now that mom can do the things she enjoys around the house. What is the impact on the marriage now that a spouse can enjoy personal time together because they are no longer in pain.
How would your life change with a single adjustment???
