ChiropracTIC-TOCK

What is ChiropracTIC? When I think of ChiropracTIC, I immediately think TOCK. Then TIC, back to TOCK. TIC-TOCK, TIC-TOCK. Are you visualizing a clock? It’s the steadiness of the clock- its motion that let’s you know that it’s functioning. Put your hand to your chest. Feel that steady “lub-dub”? That in a sense is ChiropracTIC.
