Journal of Philosophy, Principles & Practice of Chiropractic ~ October 24, 2013 ~ Pages 1-3


Objective: To review the history and research regarding chiropractic, emotional and psychological health.

Discussion: The scope of chiropractic is as broad as the scope of influence of the nervous system. Although many chiropractors and those they serve tend to focus on disorders associated with the physical body, it is obvious that abnormal nervous system function may also affect emotional and psychological health.

Conclusion: Research addressing mental health issues and chiropractic care have been published, ranging from single case reports to randomized clinical trials. It is recommended that further research be done to explore the relationship between reduction of vertebral subluxation and mental and emotional health.

Key Words: Chiropractic, mental health, vertebral subluxation
