The Specific Adjusting Machine

History of The Specific Adjusting Machine (cont.)

"The movements permitted in this joint are (a) flexion and extension which give rise to the ordinary forward and backward nodding of the head, and (b) slight lateral movement to one or other side."

The atlas can slide-slip under the condyles of the occiput. This is the most common displacement. The axis can rotate under the atlas. All the rest of the vertebrae from the third cervical down are provided with locking processes above and below which prevent motion sufficient to put pressure on the spinal cord unless there is a fracture or dislocation.

The undeniable proof of this fact is to see so-called ruptured disc cases (even those who have undergone the surgical treatment) attain freedom from pain following one, single, precise adjustment of the atlas (or axis) vertebra.

Seldom does a patient come who has not been to chiropractors, osteopaths and MD's who have "treated" the area where the pain is located. These people come with severe doubts that they are doing the right thing, but the results that follow the removal of nerve pressure erase all doubts. They refer their suffering friends and relatives from great distances, and in fact, provide them with transportation and money to get this service.

The business of taking care of sick people is very highly competitive. Chiropractors, osteopaths, MD's and hosts of others treat the patient's symptoms for a fee. The program outlined in this article gets sick people well. The fact that there is a steady flow of referrals based solely on results speaks for itself.
