This study therefore sought to answer two research questions. The first asked what chiropractors mean when they speak about vitalism. The second asked what value do chiropractors believe that chiropractic thinking and practices based on vitalism might offer in addressing current global prevalence of non-communicable lifestyle-related conditions.
