Susan M. Brown, DC, LCP

Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research ~ June 28, 2007 ~ Pages 1-7



A philosophical model of subluxation is represented in which the subluxation is viewed as a necessary component of the evolution of consciousness. A summary of current basic science and clinical models is also presented, and the commonalities of these models is used as the first step in developing the philosophical model. The value of philosophical study is addressed.


Subluxation is likened to a separation from Innate Intelligence. This separation creates polarity and perspective which are necessary components of the deepening of awareness.


The concepts of polarity and perspective are addressed along with a discussion of evolution of consciousness. These concepts are incorporated to create the proposed philosophical subluxation model. In viewing the subluxation from a philosophical perspective, the full potential of Chiropractic can be explored and ideas for new areas of investigation can be inspired.


Key Words: Subluxation models, Polarity, Perspective, Evolution of Consciousness, Awareness, Philosophy
