THE CLOVIS NEWS, THURSDAY, AUGUST U, 1921.
Many Diseases Originate in Spine (From College Journal, Kansas City College of Osteopathy and Surgery) If you are tick or deformed, or in terested ia any on who it, you will ke well repaid for reading every word of this short article. For, unlike nod article of thi nature, it doet not tell what a wonderful mn I am, nor doet it dwell upon the hard-to-understand features of healing, bu it tells about ycur body in a sensible sort of way and what nature demands in order to restore it to health. ! An you know, the humiin body is ii machine, a ciiibim.tuin of delicate, nnd very complex pieces of merhuM- j ini, and wlnti ir gits em of order it' must be tm.t'i j 11 st. us you would treat any utliir mathinc made up of I many delicate and nicely adjusted I parts. It should be treated by n' person who k lows the relet ion of all these parts, and who knows bow to j readjust them with the least incon-j vctiicticc and pain to the sufferer. , If your watch snould pet out of or der and you wuhed it repaired, you would not ht-.-itute to ehoose between n walehinaker and a blacksmith. Why? llccau.'c you know that the watchmaker lias been areii'dnnied to handle delicate iiiitiiuu,: :i. lie has studied cnrcfi.liy the relation of i.ll the little p.uts one lo the other. His finders are mi s'lsilive to the touch and so graceful that li. i.;n adjust wheels and springs and oilier little things that would be ed by thej clumsy and untrained finders of the j blacksmith. This is mi reflection on the black smith as a blacksmith, for he does his own kind of work well. He ih eimply out of his element when it conies to the repairing of a watch,' and so it. is with the care of the hu-l man body. If a delicate piece of mechanism gets out of order why j should you turn your body over to someone who will not handle it gently and with the same skill that the watchmaker repairs the watch? "That ia what I have always done," you may say. "My physician is just as gentle as he can be. He has studied the body, he knows how it is constructed, nnd yet he hH not been able to rid me of suffering or em barrassing deformities." True, the physician may be gentle and, no doubt, does the best he can, but he docs not use the best means. He does not set about the repair of your body as a watchmaker handles a watch. If he did he would not fill your body with poison which has the fect of dynamiting all the delicate tissues with which it comes in con tact. If drugs arc good things to tukc wc would' not have such spectres of suf fering and dispa'r as drug fiends, and persons who have long been Buffering with chronic diseases. No, the buoy ant, hopeful, attractive persons to meet are those who live near to na ture, who are free from contact with poisons, who love exercise and the great out of doors. If poison wcpj a good thing for the system, why not live in close rooms where the breath from your body would net pon.e in contact with fresh air? Why. you know that you would die under such conditions, that you ni.i t have ixer cise. You must live on foo !. not drugs, and you cannot eat, you can not digest that food if your bod ly mechanism is out of order. No Drugs Used Osteopathy is a system of healing Without the use of drugs, a system of healing which is in the nature of eiearcise administered by the hand of a specialist who understands and handles the human body in the same skilled, gentlr way that the watch maker repairs a watch. Through a highly developed sense of touch nnd a perfect knowledge f anatomy the osteopa'h light r ing nu ,-ha nicchanui'i Of the nsl. disoi i!, iv. . nal.'ed ilii- mi the b..di,y di-ei.lr. which, hi lanVul, must he ciiiid ly ;! me:, n-'. Thus t y move h is i"ic nf correct 'in; Anatomy Upholds Osteopathy. It is impossible to study the human body without being more fully con vinced that osteopathic principals are right. So complicated is the human machine that it is indeed a wonder that is does not more often get out of order. The spinal column alone is made up of twenty-six separate bony parts, the vertebrae, which join to the head above and the pelvis below. K'ach of the twenty-six bony purts is separated from, yet joined to, the one above by a yielding cartilage or cushion. The spinal column, when braced on every side by muscles and tissues, be comes strong enough to support all the burdens man carries. Now, it is conceivable that this spinal column will not get out of or der? And will not such disorders o. ei take the supporting framework of the. body the finely wrought, del icately set and perfectly balanced structures that occupy exact posi tions upon and within the skeleton framework? The conclusions of anatomy are unmistakable. The spine, by all laws of mechanism, is liable to get out of onier; it is subject to slips, wrenches, pressures, sprains, contractions, and congestions all of which reouire an intelligent specialist to relieve, to ad just, to cure. Thi specialist, when Nature conies to a deadlock, and the human ma chine won't work right, must be the osteopath, not the doctor with drugs. In a case of this kind all that is necessary is to correct t'le tpiu,al alignment, restore the vertebra? to its place, thus freeing III i neive branches and lestoring the vital func tio.i. A partial dislocation may be brought about in a hundred different ways, by a fall, a blow, a strain. They may be incurred in alighting from a street car or a fall upon an ice cover ed or wet pavement. One frequently has these seemingly trival occur rences and gives them nothing but a passing thought, then in a few months, or a year later, when disease becomes noticeable, the real cause is forgotten. In order to be thoroughly success ful in locating and correcting disor ders of this nature, it is essential that the mechanical theory of disease must be uppermost in the practitioner's mind; for instance, a pain at the in side of the knee he traces the ncrvo very carefully from the spine to this place, in search of a pressure or ob struction. Very frequently he finds that a pain of this kind is caused by a slight slip at the hip joint which causes a contraction of the muscles to press upon the nerve the pain be ing referred to the nerve terminal in stead of the point of irritation. An extremely slight "wrench of this kind has "laid up" many a strong man causing great pain and lameness. A very few treatments properly di rected correct the unnatural position and the patient's health returns to normal. Krom the foregoing it is not to be inferred that all diseases are caused by dislocated bones, although that is frequently the case. Sometimes a muscle becomes contracted because of congestion and interferes with the distribution of nerve force or energy. At other limes the flow of the blood becomes mechanically obstructed, cutting off nutrition to some portion of the body, thereby causing disease. In conditions of this kind is it not far better to remove the cause of the disease, allow ing u free and unob structed blood flow lather than re sort to shone "drugs"---in many en-it po'sor.s (n stimulate, to put move force behind these life-giving forces to i nalile llnhi In pass by the IrcM ruction'.' If a drain p'pe becomes obstructed, the caref'il pin mlii r goes to work to mm remove the obstruction rather than resort to the use of dynamite yet this is practically what you do when you take bottle after bottle of medi cine just literally jam your whole system full of drugs and poisons. Which method do you really think is the more conducive to perfect health? Everyone knows that the single act of sneezing can easily be prevented by pressing the center of the upper lip with the finger. Thousunds of us know that hiccough may easily be slopped by simple pressure along the course of the phrenic nerve. It is an everyday occurrence for the writer to stop diarrhoea for somebody by press ing upon the spinal nerve branches at the second lumbar interspace. Did j it ever occur to you that this is ull : simply osteopathy, and that a thor oughly competent osteopath can in a like manner stimulate or inhibit (du-' sensitize) any nerve or set of nerves in the body and in that way control any of the actions of the vital or gans? j Very often the dreaded disease paralysis is only the inhibition of the affected nerve and may be cured in a few days by removing the nerve pressure. Not Indelicate. , The treatment is neither indelicate nor painful. Women are often deter red from taking osteopathic treat ment when they need it badly because of u misapprehension of our treat-! incut. Some believe it is administer- ed upon the body ns massage usually j is. This is so absurd that it seems j scarcely worthy of refutation, andj yet the fact is that many a sick wo-' man will actually let this idea itn..d between her and her rescue from the grip of disease. A Wjid to Old People. Osteopathy is a boon to the aged. I am firm In the belief thet u general osteopathic treatment once a woek toj a person of 50 year or over will lengthen his life at least tun to twen-i ty-five years beyond what it would otherwise; grow to be. About the 50th year the vitality of the bodily organs begins to decline and as. age advancer, we find a tendency, greater in som? than in others, toward fatty degene ration and hardening of the arteries. This causes an impairment of circula tion, and through this condition a lessening of nutrition generally. Most of the organs decrease in size, and respiration rate is increased. Osteop athic treatment is in most cases spe cific, but in these cases the treatment must be a general one, the action of the skin, lungs, liver and bowels regu lated and circulation and nerve force equalized. This being done and your daily habits regulated you should reach a "ripe old age" and, more over, enjoy life while you are living it. The Cure of Deformities I suppose, of course, that all will agree with me in this the saddest sight in the world is a deformed child. In this field of practice alone osteo pathy has nmmiplishcd enough in n few short years to commend it for ever to American people. Let me tell you of one instance: About eight months ago a mother brought her lit tle girl to my office a beautiful child, It! years of age, yet no larger than she should huve been at 8 or 9. Her head was drawn over her left shoulder and spine affected by three curvatures. Every physician of their acquaintance had been consulted und there seemed to them absolutely nol hope, By mere chance she wn brought to my of fee. Slowly but' surely the disease iraci way to osteo-: put hie treatment. Sin. is now fast re-J gaining health and il i simply a ques-i lion of treatment until sh" is in per fect hcaMi ami happiness.
