People live by their philosophies of life. Without a philosophy, no one has an adequate basis for arriving at conclusions as to what should be the procedure in the problems of life. The person who understands the philosophy of chiropractic has no limits at all upon what he may do, except in his ability to apply the principles of chiropractic to the circumstances. Without the philosophy of chiropractic, one would not come to the conclusion that vertebral adjustment is necessary. Few chiropractors ever reason out the science of chiropractic unless they get fundamental philosophy in their early study of the subject and, therefore, they cannot apply the principles in practice.
