Ask the Chiropractor

Ask the Chiropractor
by D.C., Steven J. Pollack

To me Steven J. Pollack, D.C. represents the vision and integrity, which form the foundation of Chiropractic health care. Over the past 20 years I've enjoyed the opportunity to be Steve's colleague and more importantly, his friend. Together we have endured and adapted to the dramatic changes to the "business" of health care. Despite these erratic changes "Dr. Steve" has never once lost his focus on the science, art, and philosophy of Chiropractic. One minute around him and you will know he has never been "in" Chiropractic. Chiropractic lives in him! --Paul Basile, D.C.
Philosophy and Practice of Chiropractic in Special Diseases 1921

Philosophy and Practice of Chiropractic in Special Diseases 1921
by George S. Blodgett

1921. In presenting this work, it is the attempt of the author to advance the relation of subluxations to disease, also the chiropractic interpretation for the occurrence of many diseases. Appreciating the fact that only rational chiropractic can stand the light of scientific investigation, it is the constant endeavor, in all diseases herein considered, to present the adjusting point, the nerve pathway from the spine to the organ, the physiological action of the adjustment and the chiropractic prognosis. The addition of the medical prognosis is to enable the chiropractic practitioner to draw into play the element of comparison which has as its object the revelation of the efficacy of the practice of chiropractic over the practice of medicine in nearly all instances.
