Question 18. After first adjustment, when would next adjustment be given — on first return of pattern, or after three patterns that look alike?
Answer 18. This is a question of judgment. It is far better to err, if such be an error of judgment, on under-doing rather than over-doing. Much harm has been done many cases by over-adjusting. Occasionally, sick pattern will return for a day or two and, if let alone, will disappear in another day or two, and case continue to get well. It is better to wait and see than it is to “adjust” merely because a “sick pattern” returns for a day or two. See No. 17.
