I use the term a lot, but few actually ask me what it means.
Straight... the same as it is when ordering a drink... not misxed with anything.
The term was coined by Dr. BJ Palmer, the Developer of Chiropractic. At the dawn of chiropractic education, a fair amount of MD's signed up as students. No, they weren't looking to change professions. They were looking for new tools to add to what they do. The problem is that Chiropractic, specifically the chiropractic adjustment, is not a tool or a procedure, to be used in the course of any medical treatments. It is used within the uniquely vitalistic (holistic) philosophy of Chiropractic, that the Power that made the body heals the body, and, so, Health only comes from Above-down, Inside-out.
Since the MD's didn't understand this, they ended up adding, or "mixing" all kinds of thins to the adjustment... hot, cold, electrical stimulation, traction, etc. They totally missed the point. BJ called them mixers. The chiropractors who practice like this are mixed up, for sure. They truly miss the point.
