Hello, welcome to our Chiropractic office.

 My purpose in sharing with you this statement of clinical objective is to clearly define my approach to Chiropractic, to healing, and to those members of my practice whom I serve.  I wish to have a clear communication about both of our responsibilities in this exciting relationship.  The following concepts are central to the way in which I practice Chiropractic.  I am pleased to share these ideas with you, so that we can be in alignment of purpose, from the beginning. •  There is an intelligence within each individual which not only keeps that person alive, but also animates, coordinates, repairs, renews, empowers, and heals. •  The nervous system is a main coordinating system and distribution center for this Innate Intelligence. •  Alteration in the shape, position, tone, or tension of the nervous system, (especially at the spine) will block, inhibit, or redirect the expression of this intelligence. •  Subluxations of the spine (Vertebral Subluxations) are an interference to the proper functioning of the nervous system and its ability to send, receive, and coordinate life force and intelligence. •  Proper coordination, repair,   movement, inspiration, empowerment, healing, and genetic potential can not be expressed when Life's power and intelligence are blocked or redirected. •  The sole purpose of the Chiropractic Adjustment in this office is to release the vertebral subluxation, empowering a greater communication of this life power. •  Everyone, in spite of specific symptoms or ailments, can benefit from a nervous system, which is more flexible, elastic, and free of Vertebral Subluxations. •  Symptoms are not necessarily a sign of illness, but can occur to alert the individual of the need for change. •  Specific location of symptoms does not correlate to specific subluxations needing to be adjusted.  Severity of symptoms does not correlate to severity of subluxations. •  An individual may have symptoms and not need an adjustment on a particular visit.  An individual may have no symptoms and may require extensive adjustments on a particular visit. •  I do not name or treat symptoms, conditions (other than Vertebral Subluxations), or ailments.  I do not imply that any particular adjustment or series of adjustment will have direct effect on any symptom or condition a person may be presenting. •  I do not discourage seeking medical attention for naming or treating symptoms or ailments.  I actually encourage any individual, having concerns about symptoms or ailments, to consult with his or her physician. •  The Innate Intelligence, through the functioning of the nervous system, is the true agent of healing, empowerment, coordination, inspiration, movement, and joy.  Healing is an inside function of the body, coordinated by the same Power which develops and renews your body. •  By their very intent, various forms of treatment, may interfere with the functioning of the nervous system and are often incompatible with maximizing the benefits of Chiropractic adjustments.  This may include drugs, such as pain reducing prescriptions, muscle relaxers, anti- inflammatory compounds, and mood altering medication. •  Medication levels for a non-flexible body-mind stuck in sickness is not necessarily the same for a body becoming well. •  I will not venture into a practice of medicine by advising about  reduction of such medications.  I suggest that you speak with your physician to determine the objective and goal to be obtained by receiving the medical treatment.  Determine if this objective  is consistent with your desire for wellness, at this point in time.  Your physician may guide you in changing of any medication or treatments you are presently  taking to accommodate for your changing body-mind. •  Consistent with this concepts, I choose to help each individual member of my practice to a greater level of wellness, elasticity, personal growth, empowerment, and healing, by locating and adjusting Vertebral Subluxations, with whichever technique appears most honoring to that individual.  Sincerely, Joseph B. Clifford, D.C.    I, (practice member's name), have read this statement of purpose, and understand its contents.  I understand that the spinal adjustments offered in this office are not a replacement for any form of diagnosis or treatment provided by other types of practitioners.  I understand that I am not being treated for any condition or symptom.  This office offers Chiropractic as a form of wellness care, to promote the natural mechanisms for self healing and empowerment.    Signature:__________________________    Date:____________   THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENTS!                  Innate Intelligence, Inc., 1992
