  Title Concepts in the study of complexity and their possible relation to chiropractic health care: a scientific rationale for a holistic approach
Journal Clin Chiropr. 2003 Mar;6(1):15-33
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Complexity theory is forming the basis of an emerging paradigm, one that is primarily holistic, non-reductionist and defines limits on predictive power. Many natural phenomena show deep similarities in their behavior due to the fact that their connectivity and dynamics of interactions between system elements (and not the nature of the elements themselves) dominate. The presence of power laws and the large impact of the historical development of the system (amongst other characteristics) may allow the verification of relevant behavior in systems such as the human spine.

The human spine as a system is highly connected and may fall within the descriptions of complex systems and display the universal behavior of known complex systems. Given this possibility, the paradigm articulated by complexity theory and its approach and language may be appropriate in describing both some characteristics of the human spine in health and disease and interventions and approaches such as chiropractic in the treatment of spinal dysfunction.
