By Dr. Marilyn Shore Special to The Pineapple Hi everyone! My name is Dr. Marilyn Shore, and I am proud to say that I am a Chiropractor. Prior to this, I was an RN in New York City. After working on many units, in several hospitals, I became disillusioned with medicine, especially for chronic illness. I went to Life Chiropractic University in Atlanta, Georgia and now have been in practice for 26 years. I currently have an office in downtown Delray Beach, and have been there for the last ten years. I am making my history brief, because what I want to share with you is what I do and what Chiropractic really is. Most people think that Chiropractic is for back and neck pain, and the reason why most people go see a Chiropractor is for that reason. I am here to shed that understanding. The first Chiropractic adjustment was in 1895 by a man named DD Palmer. There was a janitor in his building who was deaf, and Palmer noted that he had a misalignment in his spine, and proceeded to adjust it back into place, and amazingly his hearing returned. This was the beginning of Chiropractic. It was never intended to be a back pain modality. The purpose of Chiropractic is to find and correct vertebra in the spine that are out of alignment, blocking the nerve energy flow from the brain to all the tissues, organs and cells of the body, to give them back life. If your foot is on a garden hose and the water can’t get out, the plants die. If you have vertebra, interfering with the nerve flow, you start dying. My job is to find and correct these misalignments, so the innate or inborn wisdom of your body can heal you from the inside out. Thus, I am the master mechanic that moves the bone to allow the innate within you to do the healing. It is gentle, specific and effective for anyone who has a spine, from birth to the elderly. I have been getting my spine checked and adjusted, when needed, for the past 30 years. I have an 18-year-old daughter who has been getting adjusted since she was born. She has never had a pill or medication in her entire life. I make sure we are clear, and when you are clear of nerve interference, and your innate is on the job, then you have the best opportunity to heal and stay healthy. If you are interested in hearing more, I have weekly talks in my office that you are welcome to attend. For more information call 561-278-2727 or visit www.shorechiro.com.
