This is the concluding article in a three part series describing a proposed vertebral subluxation model which is based on traditional and contemporary information. This article presents one strategy for investigating subluxation-based chiropractic and the vertebral subluxation. The holistic and mechanical aspects of subluxation-based chiropractic are discussed in conjunction with research methods for their study. Attention is placed on an eclectic approach to investigation which incorporates methods used in sociology/anthropology, as well as the basic sciences and biomedicine.
