There can be interference with transmission of universal forces.
This is a very basic principle, but because it is one of the 33 Chiropractic Principles we will discuss it briefly. If you remember the last principle, universal forces can be very destructive in nature, but often they are not.
Snow melting in the spring, then traveling down a mountain in the form of a stream is an example of universal forces at work. Wind blowing leaves through the air is another example. Gravity is also a universal force. The list can go on and on.
Universal forces can definitely be interfered with. A dam is an example of interference to the transmission of a universal force in the form of a flowing river. A firehose spraying water on a burning building, extinguishing the fire, is an example of interference to the transmission of a universal force.
So how does this relate to Chiropractic? If you are walking along during a windy day, chances are your spine won’t suffer from a vertebral subluxation caused by the wind. However, your body will block the wind from blowing straight ahead, so it will diverge around your body, weakening its force. This is another example of interference to the transmission of a universal force.
What about a fall off a ladder? When you fall off a ladder, gravity pulls you down. As you fall down, your body gains momentum in the form of kinetic energy. One of the laws of thermodynamics is that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. So when your body hits the ground, that energy has to go somewhere. Your body absorbs that backlash of energy, via the impact on the ground, through your vertebrae and/or other bones and muscles. This interference in the transmission of a universal force, results in an injury, the likes of which will surely need Chiropractic care, or even a cast in some cases.
