This doesn’t refer to the group of friends who join a patient, and it doesn’t require tipping. The common insider names given to people in the chiropractic field are “Straights” and “Mixers.” Interesting, but both are affinitive names that highlight a practitioner’s background, philosophy, and approach to chiropractic medicine. Both types of chiropractors are available at a pain clinic in Memphis, TN, and they each can work miracles for total body wellness.
This philosophy of chiropractic medicine focuses on a very specific therapy. It is based almost exclusively on the spine, and palpation that corrects subluxation. Basically, Straights identify problems and pain in the body, then pinpoint areas in the spine where causal abnormalities exist. After the areas of the spine are identified, a series of manipulations by hand or therapeutic devices are used to correct it.
