In Silicon Valley there is Palmer West which is one of the chiropractic colleges and they have a student clinic.
I need to be adjusted at times and they are cheaper than the regular chiropractor and so I made an appointment.
I see the student chiropractor in the student clinic and we go through a lot of introductory conversation and testing, which includes discussion of pain.
At one point I say, “I am one of those 1 in several thousand people who gets caned or whipped a few times a year. The pain in my foot is a lot less than being caned or whipped!”
The chiropractic student and I smile and laugh!!
