“My spine is out of alignment”
Ever heard someone say this, or even hear a health professional say it to you or a friend? Well what a load of B*@#%£KS!!!! 💩
This is simply not true! You are not out of alignment and you cannot be realigned! ..
Don’t confuse and scaremonger the patient and don’t use terminology like this which encourages patients to seek an external locus and passive intervention - STOP!🚧
TO EVERYONE – Your spine is a STRONG, ROBUST structure, it doesn’t go out of alignment!💪🏻💯
