  Title A survey of sets of principles of chiropractic
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2001 Jun;31(2):58-69
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes The author conducted a hand search of the RMIT University general collection, its Historical Chiropractic collection, and the author’s own collection, to purposefully select texts reporting or discussing principles of chiropractic. A search of the Index to Chiropractic Literature was also conducted to extract articles which contained evidence-based comment relevant to the principles of chiropractic. Early copies of the Journal of the Australian Chiropractors’ Association were also hand-searched. A contemporary context was found from a critical review of the Conference on Philosophy in Chiropractic Education sponsored by the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) and held in Florida in November 2000. This review is published elsewhere (Ebrall PS. Philosophy in chiropractic education—the importance of globalisation as opposed to Americanisation [guest editorial]. Chiropr J Aust 2001;31:1-7). Review of the selected literature in the contemporary context allowed the synthesis of the theme of consistency over time and congruence with the founding premise, providing a framework into which the published understandings of chiropractic principles could be placed. This survey documents the major contributions to the development of understanding of the principles of chiropractic and leads to the synthesis of three contemporary principles of chiropractic which encapsulates the historical principles and related critical comment in the literature base of the chiropractic profession.
