Hindsight is 20/20. In other words, it’s easier to look back with “20/20 vision” and evaluate the decisions you made, than to predict the outcomes that will take place in the future.
Benefiting from chiropractic adjustments can be similar. It’s easier to look back on consistent care and see the value of each chiropractic adjustment than it is to predict what good will come from future visits to your chiropractor.
Chiropractic Hindsight is when you’ve been under regular chiropractic care and can see the value in each adjustment that has produced higher quality life for you. For those who use chiropractic consistently, there may likely be obvious indicators before and after the adjustment that demonstrate that it’s a worthwhile investment.
But, what about those who have never been to a chiropractor before? What if they’re interested in learning more about it, or even considering trying it? How do you encourage someone to do something without forecasting what the future holds for them while they’re under care?
Steve Jobs has a famous quote, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.”
In chiropractic, we like to trust that the “adjustments will connect” in your future through a logical conclusion that each chiropractic adjustment can provide positive influence to your wellbeing and quality of life. This logic is derived from the evidence that spinal health is linked to the condition of the brain and neurological system. Poor spinal health affects your neurological wellbeing.
Chiropractors focus on enhancing wellbeing through the detection and correction of vertebral subluxation. Vertebral subluxation are misalignments in the spine that create stress on the neurological system due to the intimate relationship of structure and function that spinal health has on the neurological system.
Over 120 years of chiropractic hindsight continues to produce connections between the relationship of structure and function. When there is proper spinal structure, neurological function is impacted and the innate recuperate powers to heal and coordinate proper function are fully expressed.
