Chiropractic Philosophy

The chiropractic perspective on health and disease emphasizes two fundamental concepts:

1) the structure and condition of the body influences how the body functions and its ability to heal itself; and

2) the mind-body relationship is instrumental in maintaining health and in the healing processes.

Although chiropractic shares much with other health professions, its emphasis and application of philosophy distinguishes it from modern medicine. Chiropractic philosophy gravitates toward a holistic ("total person") approach to healing which combines elements of the mind, body and spirit and maintains that health depends on obedience to natural laws, and that deviation from such laws can result in illness.

Chiropractic Philosophy includes:

emphasis on patient recuperative abilities rather than surgery

recognition that dynamics exist between lifestyle, environment and health

understanding the cause of illness in order to eliminate it, rather than simply treat symptoms

recognition of the centrality of the nervous system and its intimate relationship with the capacities of the human body

balancing benefits versus risks of clinical interventions

recognition of the primary importance of monitoring progress closely through appropriate diagnostic procedures

a patient-centered, hands-on approach focused on influencing function through structure

focus on early intervention emphasizing timely diagnosis and treatment of conditions that are wholly functional and reversible.

Chiropractic philosophy blends an effective combination of conviction, critical thinking, open-mindedness, and appreciation of the natural order of things.

Chiropractic focuses on the establishment and maintenance of a relationship between patients and their environment which is most conducive to functional well-being.
