THE PHILOSOPHY OF CHIROPRACTIC – THE SCIENCE OF CHIROPRACTIC

This series of lectures explores the questions of how to define chiropractic separately from the dogma that attempts to make it more like a fundamental religion and he makes it more like common sense scientific information. Dr. Leach explores his own and other research pathways that have led many to understand how and why chiropractic works. He distinguishes that chiropractic must have a sound philosophy on which to base its science, and science on which to base its practice. In doing this he helps the attendee realize that there are numerous studies in chiropractic in which animals have been used as models for humans, but where they can also serve as models for animal chiropractic practice.

  • THE PHILOSOPHY OF CHIROPRACTIC – THE SCIENCE OF CHIROPRACTIC

    The Philosophy of Chiropractic – The Science of Chiropractic is a lecture by Dr. Robert Leach in which he explores the questions of how to define chiropractic separately from the dogma that attempts to make it more like a fundamental religion and he makes it more like common sense scientific information.  Dr. Leach explores his own and other research pathways that have led many to understand how and why chiropractic works.  He distinguishes that chiropractic must have a sound philosophy on which to base its science, and science on which to base its practice.  In doing this he helps the student realize that there are numerous studies in chiropractic in which animals have been used as models for humans, but where they can also serve as models for animal chiropractic practice.  The Philosophy of Chiropractic – The Science of Chiropractic 2 is a lecture by Dr. Robert Leach.  In this lecture Leach discusses the role of modern science and how it shapes a professional practice.  In this lecture Leach also takes some time to explain how the media inform the public of their view of chiropractic and the fact that this view, while incorrect, shapes the majority of public viewpoints with regard to the profession.  He makes a stand for chiropractors doing more clinical research and publishing more scientific research on their findings in a variety of journals in the hopes of changing the public view.  The Philosophy of Chiropractic – The Science of Chiropractic 3 is a lecture by Dr. Robert Leach on how Modern Theory of Chiropractic Informs Practice.  This lecture explains the need for chiropractic philosophy within a chiropractic practice in order to make the practice successful.  Leach outlines the early theories on stress and its role in the subluxation complex, using several early researchers work to show how this is modeled and ways in which the non-inflammatory subluxation can be seen in daily life.  The Philosophy of Chiropractic – The Science of Chiropractic 4 is a lecture by Dr. Robert Leach.  In this lecture Dr. Leach outlines the physics of the spinal adjustment using research from both his own practice and that of several others, including Dr. Joel Pickar who has done several studies in using the cat as a model for the human spine.  This of course is interesting to the animal chiropractor because it gives a direct example of the forces used by animal chiropractors on animal patients.  Here he shows how the frequency of firing of the neurons are directly affected by the spinal adjustment in a positive way.  He uses many other studies suggesting that clinical outcomes correlate well with the physical data that illustrates the function of the improvement in spinal movement.
