Chiropractic Thoughts was originally published in 1927 as a textbook for students at Drain’s Texas Chiropractic College.  J.R. Drain graduated from the Palmer School of Chiropractic in 1911 where he studied with D.D. Palmer and B.J. Palmer. Drain practiced chiropractic for 11 years and taught at Texas Chiropractic College for seven years before writing this book. He was president of Texas Chiropractic College from 1920 until 1954. His mastery of the philosophy of chiropractic is evident within the pages of Chiropractic Thoughts. The book is a rare gem and an excellent complement to Stephenson’s Chiropractic Textbook, published the same year. Drain wrote in the first person perspective, what he referred to as “street language.” The book’s chapters explain many core philosophical concepts such as, Retracing, Innate Intelligence, Cause of Disease, Spinal Cord Pressure, Positive Survival Values, Adjusting, Function, and Intellectual Adaptation. This book is one of a kind.  It is an absolute must read for every chiropractor.

Product Description

Chiropractic Thoughts is the first book in our Chiropractic Classics Series.

“It is the supreme privilege and imperative duty of all who love Chiropractic to become closely acquainted with its beautiful Philosophy. It is a calamity when the interpretation of the philosophy of Chiropractic becomes the monopoly of a few ‘authorities’ and when direct access to its treasures is denied to the mass of mankind. It is impossible to conceive of any better boon than that which opens the storehouse to everyone who has the heart to explore it.” J.R. Drain – from the Introduction to Chiropractic Thoughts

“I want every one of you to enlighten people on the Philosophy of Chiropractic—talk to your one patient or your twenty patients or your hundred patients as your ambition goes today. Every one of you have the ambition to adjust 100 patients a day. I had the same ambition but now I am interested in having people hear the Philosophy of Chiropractic and then live it.” J.R. Drain, from page 243, Chiropractic Thoughts
