However, soon after uniting under the banner of the New Jersey Chiropractic Society, the “straight” leadership lost control of virtually all positions of authority within the new organization to the numerically superior “mixers”. Against this backdrop, the Garden State Chiropractic Society was formed by a handful of DC’s determined to maintain chiropractic as the correction of the vertebral subluxation only.
By the mid 1970′s the Garden State was influencing legislations in Trenton and informing the public about the Truth of Chiropractic. The organization contained some of the highest-volume and most successful practitioners in America and attracted members looking to understand and practice Straight Chiropractic.
To this day, some three decades after its creation, the Garden State Chiropractic Society continues to provide leadership, legislative influence, education for the public and the profession and mentoring support for the new straight practitioner. lf the issue involves Straight Chiropractic, the Garden State is there.
