Chi­ro­prac­tic Infor­ma­tion Comes to the Philip­pines

A very infor­ma­tive arti­cle on chi­ro­prac­tic appeared in the May 5, 2007 issue of the Manila Bul­letin, from the Philip­pines. What is unusual about this arti­cle is the qual­ity of the infor­ma­tion being pre­sented to the Philip­pine pop­u­la­tion, who for the most part, are unfa­mil­iar with chi­ro­prac­tic care.

The arti­cle, writ­ten by Leo Ortega Laparan, starts off by explain­ing the impor­tance of the ner­vous sys­tem and uses a cul­tural exam­ple. Mr. Laparan states, “It is a sci­en­tific fact that one’s brain, spinal cord and the rest of the nerves con­nect to and con­trol every aspect of his or her body, mak­ing it a lot like a bustling ‘cen­tral busi­ness dis­trict’. Hin­der­ing these vital con­nec­tions can result in ill health, much like step­ping on a hose that slows the flow of water to a gar­den, depriv­ing the lat­ter a chance to flourish.”

The arti­cle goes on to explain chi­ro­prac­tic to the Philip­pine peo­ple by say­ing that, “It is a branch of the heal­ing arts that is anchored on the prin­ci­ple that good health depends, in part, upon a nor­mally func­tion­ing ner­vous sys­tem, espe­cially the spine as its most vul­ner­a­ble part.”

The arti­cle even goes into an expla­na­tion of “sub­lux­a­tions” by explain­ing how these sub­lux­a­tions can cause inter­fer­ence with the ner­vous sys­tem and affect health. A Manila-​based, US trained chi­ro­prac­tor, Dr. Mot­ley was also inter­viewed for the arti­cle and he explained to the Philip­pine peo­ple how chi­ro­prac­tic adjust­ments help cor­rect sub­lux­a­tions by say­ing, “Using the hands, the spine is re-​adjusted or kind of reset, much like chang­ing the main breaker of the switch at home.” He con­tin­ued, “Any­body, from kids to peo­ple in their 80s and 90s, can enjoy the ben­e­fits of expe­ri­enc­ing chi­ro­prac­tic treatment.”

The insight­ful arti­cle, pre­sented to a pop­u­la­tion unfa­mil­iar with chi­ro­prac­tic con­cludes with a won­der­ful expla­na­tion of the very essence of the chi­ro­prac­tic con­cept. “Doc­tors don’t heal, and the very best ones remove inter­fer­ence to one’s heal­ing abil­ity, the true pur­pose of chi­ro­prac­tic and chiropractors.”
