What are the 2 types of chiropractic?

Chiropractic was traditionally divided into two groups, "straight" chiropractors and "mixers". This divide is no longer prevalent as the vast majority of chiropractors today would fit into the "mixers" category.

The "straight" philosophy, taught to early generations of chiropractors, rejects the scientific method and relies on vitalistic principles to support its theories.

"Mixers" attempt to combine science (research) with traditional values (holistic care).

The vast majority of chiropractors today engage in critical thinking and evidence-based care, which would clasify them as "mixers" in the traditional sense.
