  Title The treatment act: An analysis of the clinical art in chiropractic
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 1991 Jan;14(1):5-13
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Review

This paper discusses the nature of healing as it applies to the clinical art of chiropractic. General concepts of the phenomenology of illness and healing are developed and then applied specifically toward chiropractic care. The role of metaphor in medicine and chiropractic is discussed; chiropractic may make better use of root metaphor than does the practice of medicine. Finally, the paper discusses certain implications of the clinical art of chiropractic as they relate to teaching and research within the chiropractic profession.
