The Chiropractic Adjustment and the Innate Basis of the Subluxation

The audience will gain a working knowledge of the biological evolutionary reason for the existence of the subluxation and the use of chiropractic adjustment.

  • An understanding of human evolution explains the biological basis of the chiropractic subluxation
  • A hypothesis is presented that logically argues as to why all humans should be checked for subluxations and adjusted as needed
  • A hypothesis is presented and supported in the scientific literature as to why subluxation correction through chiropractic adjustment and other means should be maintained throughout life
