Introduction
 
Although as a principle Chiropractic is ancient; as amodern,
working
profession among the sciences of healing it is slightlylessthan ahalf  century old.During this short space of time as an organized
profession
it hasmade remarkable progress. Itisfor the purpose of opening
a
vistainthe clouds of doubt and showing a panorama of achievementswhich
Chiropractors
can truthfully
claim
,
 that thisbook is offered
an
intelligentAmerican
public.
 You are going to be surprised at our accomplishments as you
read
and look through the following pages. As you visualizethe

understand
thatourprofessionis no transient or ineffective institution. You
will

grams, allmadeespecially plain for thebusyman or woman
concerned
with their own daily problems,that Chiropractic is indeed a scientificmethod for the prevention and adjustment of disease. Therehave beenthose who somehow could not come to think of Chiropractic as a sound, ethical, effectivemethodof handlingdisease. Because of subtle and,
in
some instances, insidious forcesthat held
our
professionup tothe pubEcinthe wronglight,and encouraged
doubt
in our capacity and education, wehavesought to paradethese
achieve
ments intlus book. This work 
is
gratefullydedicatedto thosewho have early
understood
the meritinthe science of Chiropractic and who have made our achievementspossible while they themselves wereregainingor
maintaining
abundant
health.

of 
thought
and
understanding
onthe problems of sick

 Thepresent dayprofession of Chiropractic isthedirect outcome of his efforts.Today, his principles
have

the

Hisprinciplesof correct· ing displacements of the
articulations
of thespinal column
have
 
 
since
been
practiced in almost everycountryof the world. The greatest credit which can
be

is 
that he
brought
