ChiroSH Online

ChiroSH (Chiropractic Subject Headings) is a controlled vocabulary created by members of the Chiropractic Library Collaboration, an organization affiliated with the Association of Chiropractic Colleges. ChiroSH is used by the Index to Chiropractic Literature’s indexers, and by catalogers in health sciences libraries. This online version (under development) is an innovation we hope will be widely used by students, chiropractors and researchers. The first edition of ChiroSH was released in 1984 and the seventh edition is currently in production.

Developed by Nicholas Spano, D.C. Suggested reading: Advanced Muscle Palpation [by] Dr. Nicholas Spano [2015]
AMP [Advanced Muscle Palpation] is a system of analysis that hypothesizes that “resting segmental muscular activity is homeostatic in nature.” It theorizes that the central nervous system coordinates muscle activity such that the muscles are acting in attempt to restore balance and normal structure. Therefore, assessing “working” muscles gives the doctor insight into how the body is attempting to correct misalignments and informs the clinician on the line of force application for the corrective thrust.
