The hypothesis of chiropractic is that mechanical, chemical and emotional stressors that exceed the natural ability of the body to repair, will inevitably lead to tissue malfunction and disease. The dis-ease state takes many years, and can be corrected, attenuated, or avoided by stimulating the central nervous system with a series of specific adjustments to spinal segments and other joints, and lifestyle changes in general.
The chiropractic hypothesis is a model. However it is broadly accepted that lifestyle is the major factor in the development of most modern diseases. Chiropractic care is a lifestyle that encourages us to move, eat and think well.
As with all healthcare approaches ongoing research is required to fully test the validity of the model. Anecdotal evidence from individual patient outcomes, group outcomes, and comparative studies are the main evidence at this time.
