DEFINITIONS for the Next Generation of Healthcare


CHIROPRACTIC : is the Art, Science and Philosophy of locating and facilitating the reduction of interference to the Nervous System.



Neurological – An abnormal Neurological pattern in the brain and spinal cord.

Biomechanical – dysfunctional areas of the spine, pelvis and / or cranial bones and joints where the joints or bones are either improperly positioned or not moving appropriately.

The Neurological subluxation results in the biomechanical one.

CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT: This is a Chiropractic procedure performed either by hand or with instruments. It is a gentle stimulation or input into the spine/nervous system whereby the consequence of an action serves to continually modify further action within the nervous system with the intent of creating harmony within the body’s systems.

WELLNESS: We are going to introduce a change in this term to Peak Performance. Yes we all want to be well but since health is determined by how well your body performs Peak Performance is more accurate. It is a consequence of all the cells in the body working in harmony 100% of the time. Peak Performance at the integrated cellular level. This involves the CNS being balanced and in a state of homeostasis.

HEALTH:  According to the World Health Organization “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not just the absence of disease or infirmity. It has held this definition from 1948 and is still what they stand by today. This is also echoed by Dorland’s Medical Dictionary.
