  Title Chiropractic, health promotion and the potential for synergy
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2002 Mar;32(1):7-13
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes The philosophy of chiropractic draws on a paradigm of thought involving beliefs about both the body’s and people’s self-healing propensities. This paradigm suggests health care workers would be interested in the expertise people bring to their situation, and fostering healthy and empowering dialogue. In contrast, when chiropractors share knowledge with their patients about improving and maintaining their health, they often use a traditional health education approach based on a “one-way expert” model. This paper addresses some of the issues involved in moving beyond this model. Health promotion, an increasingly advocated approach since the 1980s, involves strategies that encompass and extend existing educative and health-promoting efforts within the philosophy of chiropractic. The different forms health promotion takes will be discussed, some brief examples of this work in relation to spinal health provided, and the steps that could occur on a national level to build the potential for greater synergy will be identified.
