  Title In response to “The Knowledge of Our Knowledge”: 2 decades and not much has changed
Journal J Chiropr Humanit. 2012 Dec;19(1):Online access only p 40-43
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

The chiropractic profession has struggled with how it is viewed and perceived by those within the profession and the powerful forces outside the profession. This commentary suggests that the vast majority of professional unrest is largely due to lines drawn upon philosophical boundaries and how we perceive what we know. For the profession to advance, it is imperative that unsubstantiated claims are eliminated from our justification for being and that we continue to test theories using scientific methods. Theories espoused must be able to be supported by valid research, and we must be ready to accept the results of these investigations and either build upon that body of research or accept the findings and move in alternative directions that science will take us. In doing so, we will contribute to the philosophy of health and perhaps help to change the health care paradigm from disease focused to wellness, which is based upon evidence and not emotion.
