CHIROPRACTIC AND PROPRIOCEPTION: TIC VLOG EPISODE 3

Chiropractic and proprioception have been intertwined for over one hundred years. In TIC VLOG Episode 3, I answer a question about this topic in relation to the book Segmental Neuropathy. Arthur Heintz, DC, linked chiropractic and proprioception in 1912. He also influenced Verner and R.J. Watkins. They were two of chiropractic’s most important theorists of the last century. Much of today’s subluxation theory can be traced to their research.

BIG IDEAS FROM THIS EPISODE

  • Arthur Heintz was not only the first person (besides D.D. Palmer) to integrate chiropractic and proprioception but he may have also been the only chiropractor to have met Speransky.
  • Heintz brought together chiropractic and proprioception and the concept of Innate Intelligence.
  • R.J. Watkins was inspired by Verner and Heintz to make sense of the “reflex technics.”
  • One of Watkins’ greatest achievements was to describe the neurophysiology of “light” adjustments (such as Logan Basic).
  • One central idea from Segmental Neuropathy was Local Sensorial Conversation Tone. The subluxated joint segment included a “buzz,” a “detuning,” and led to “neurological disintegration.”
  • Stephenson’s concept of the Normal Vertemere Cycle was congruent with these theories.

    This is wonderful, thank you for making me want to go to my office and pick up my copy of The Bigness of the Fellow Within.

  2. I was taught by Dr Watkins for 3 years at life college from76-79 and still use many of his techniques , I also have all of his books and original class notes from that era, I was one of the lucky ones to be taught chiropractic before the CCE changes

  3. Amazing! I haven’t met any of his Life Students. Those notes should be treasured and then archived! ; )
