Chiropractic Chalkboard

By Editorial Staff
"There must be a doctor who is a specialist of the motor system. It doesn't yet exist, and particularly it must be a specialist who understands motor dysfunction and not just pathology. Established medicine does not go into understanding dysfunction. And it's getting worse because they (medicine) rely more and more on imaging techniques, which practically all show change in structure.

"There is a need for a profession that will develop a focus on the motor system as a whole. If the trend continues, it is quite possible that the chiropractors will do it. It will take another two decades, but the trend is there."

-- Karel Lewit, MD, pioneer in medical manual therapy, professor at Charles University and consultant to the Central Railway Health Institute in Prague, Czechoslovakia.
