Twenty years’ acquaintance permits me to conclude that in prosperity and adversity, Dr. Joy M. Loban gave more unselfishly and received less from Chiropractic than any other I know, and it is truly regrettable that the demoralized state of our profession prohibits a fitting tribute to his memory, or appreciation for the sacrifices so willingly made by his good wife and children.
Certainly those favored by his friendship, instruction, and advice, are better chiropractors, men and women, no matter what differences of opinion might have existed otherwise.
I trust that our distorted and mutilated Chiropractic records in this case may be complete and correct, in the interest of one to whom his every student owes much.
A victim of the mad penchant for prescribed massive thrusts upon vertebrae, in this instance designed to move the sacrum anterior, Dr. Loban suffered the effects for years, or until the date of his death.
Dr. Loban came into and went out of Chiropractic expecting from others only a part of that which he gave, and despite our turbulent scholastic and political affairs, was charitable even to his traducers.
He was an honest believer in what he preached – Chiropractic.
