Question: Why am I here?????

4 Stages of Competence

1.Unconscious incompetence

The individual is often unaware he/she does not
understand or know how to do something, because no situations have arisen to demand the skill and alert the individual to the deficit. He or she often knows there is a skill lacking but denies the usefulness of the skill. The individual must recognize his/her own incompetence and the value of the new skill, before moving on to the next stage. The length of time an individual spends in this stage depends on the strength of the stimulus to learn. The individual must experience an increase in motivation to add new skills to her/his repertoire.

2. Conscious incompetence

The individual becomes aware he/she does
not understand or know how to do something. She or he also begins to recognize the deficit is significant and it would be valuable to learn new skills in order to address the deficit and gain competence. The making of mistakes can be frequent and may be central to the learning process at this stage, as the learner refines the skills through practice.

3. Conscious competence

The individual understands or knows how to do something.
He/she can demonstrate the skill or knowledge but it requires concentration and effort. It may need to be broken down into steps or detailed processes. There is often heavy conscious involvement involved executing the new skill. The frequency of mistakes begins to decline.

4. Unconscious competence

The individual has had so much refining practice with a skill that he or she does not really need to think about what to do. It has become "second nature" and can be performed with very low frequency of errors. Because the skill is not occupying much of the individual’s conscious thoughts, it can often be performed while executing another task. The individual has become so comfortable with the skill she/he will often be able to teach it to others.


Chiropractic Physicians,
Chiropractic Medicine,
Chiropractic: A system of therapeutics based upon the claim that disease is caused by abnormal function of the nerve system. It attempts to restore normal function of the nerve system by manipulation and treatment of the structures of the human body, especially those of the spinal column.(Dorlands Medical Dictionary)

Chiropractic, that philosophy, science, and art of things natural, a system of adjusting the segments of the spinal column, by hand only, for the correction of the cause of dis-ease.(Stephenson's Chiropractic Text Book)

Define the conversation as to what you are or others will define what you are before you get the chance!
Vertebral Subluxation: That condition of a vertebra which has lost it's proper juxtaposition to the vertebra above, the vertebra below or both, to an extent less than a luxation, which impinges nerves and interferes with the transmission of mental impulses.( Stephenson's Chiropractic Textbook)

Subluxation: An incomplete or partial dislocation(Dorlands Medical Dictionary).

Vertebral: Of or pertaining to a vertebra(Dorlands Medical Dictionary)

What's the difference between the first and the combination of the last two?????

Adjustment-in Chiropractic, a manipulation of the spine, said to restore normal nerve function and cure disease.(Dorlands)
Manipulation: skillful or dextrous treatment by the hand. In physical therapy, the forceful passive movement of a joint beyond its active limit of motion.(Dorlands)
Other professions:
Physical therapist: a person who is licensed in the examination, evaluation, and treatment of physical impairments through the use of special exercise, application of heat or cold, and other physical modalities. The goal is to assist persons who are physically challenged to maximize independence and improve mobility, self-care, and other functional skills necessary for daily living. A physical therapist becomes qualified by studying a 4- to 7-year college curriculum leading to a bachelor's or master's degree in physical therapy (usually B.S., M.S., or M.P.T.).(Mosbys Dictionary)

Physiatrist: A physiatrist is a medical doctor or doctor of osteopathic medicine who specializes in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (also called PM&R physicians). Physiatrists diagnose and treat both acute pain and chronic pain and specialize in a wide variety of nonsurgical treatments for the musculoskeletal system.(spine-health.com)

Bonesetters: Bonesetters are practitioners of joint manipulation. Before physical therapists, osteopaths, and chiropractors, they were the main providers of joint manipulation. In Japan the practice is known as, :Sekkotsu." Bone setting has been around in one format or another long before modern treatments.

Osteopathy: a system of therapy founded by Andrew Taylor Still in 1874 and based on the theory that the body is capable of making it's own remedies against disease and other toxic conditions when it is in normal structural relationship and has favorable environmental conditions and adequate nutrition. It utilizes generally accepted physical, medicinal, and surgical methods of diagnosis and therapy,while placing chief emphasis on the importance of normal body mechanics and manipulative methods of detecting and correcting faulty structure.

Take out your clickers to answer the next question.
The answers will not be saved, the question is for
informational purposes only to get a sense of the group.
Earlier this week at Wimbledon, tennis star Andy Murray started to experience shoulder pain in the middle of his match. Murray called a timeout and was adjusted right on the court. Of course, he went on to win the match!

Think getting adjusted is just for low back pain? Think again!

Vision Statement of Life University

Our goal is to maximize the expression of the perfection within.

We recognize that all organic systems in the universe are conscious, self-developing, self-maintaining and self-healing.

We believe that these systems work best when they are free of interference.

We understand that the nervous system is primarily responsible for orchestrating the internal and external dialogue of the body necessary for life.

We acknowledge that there are three interferences to the nervous system: physical trauma, environmental toxins and emotional stress.

Therefore, our purpose is to correct these interferences, allowing the organism to express its innate potential.

Of critical importance is our Doctor of Chiropractic degree, which is focused on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system and the aberration, called vertebral subluxation, as well as its detection and correction, allowing a greater expression of the perfection within.
