Dr. Walton is constantly adjusting what he does in order to align his life and his business with his core purpose. As society changes, he changes too. He doesn’t change the principles of chiropractic. Those are constant. However, the application changes as culture and lifestyle changes.
Imagine a cardiologist who performs the same procedures now that he performed in 1997. It wouldn’t happen. Likewise, Dr. Walton seeks to always be improving and learning. He strives to be at the forefront of personal performance and chiropractic care.
He also strives to learn about people and how they live, function, adapt. Lifestyles, technology, and habits are changing, so Dr. Walton keeps learning so he can understand and relate and thus give a better adjustment. As he gives better adjustments, his patients’ nervous systems can better adapt to the stresses of thoughts, traumas, and toxins.
One of his desires is to help people realize how their lifestyle affects their health. How they eat, how they think, how they move or don’t move, how they process and respond to life, all play a role in how their bodies function.
He teaches his patients to examine the physical, mental, emotional, and biochemical aspects of their lives. Part of that is teaching them how to loosen up, lighten up, and see things with an optimistic perspective.
A chiropractor’s thinking, mood, and emotions can affect the chiropractic adjustments he gives his patients. A patient probably doesn’t want a chiropractor to be angry, complacent, unhappy, or bored. This is because the chiropractor is transferring a force into his patient’s spine and nervous system to help it function better. You wouldn’t want anger flowing through that adjustment. So Dr. Walton strives to live a life that allows him to be happy and interested and that sets others at ease.
One way he does that is by using laughter to help people relax, be happy, and feel better about themselves. When his patients are relaxed and happy, their bodies respond to chiropractic adjustments better, regulate themselves better, and heal better.
