medically oriented chiropractic
medically oriented chiropracticChiropractic
A philosophy that diverges from the principles delineated by DD Palmer (the founder of chiropractic), medical orientation refers to the adoption of a mainstream (allopathic) medical perspective for understanding disease, thus widening chiropractors’ usual scope of practice and resulting subspecialisation in areas that are not the usual domain of alternative forms of healthcare (e.g., obstetrics and surgery).
