The Palmer Tenets

The Palmer Chiropractic University System embraces the philosophy that life is intelligent; the human body possesses the inherent potential to maintain itself in a natural state of homeostasis through its innate/inborn intelligence.

The Palmer Chiropractic University System maintains that the science of chiropractic emphasizes the relationship between structure, primarily of the spinal column and the nervous system, and how that relationship affects function and health. Implicit within this statement is the significance of the nervous system to health and the effect of the subluxation complex upon the nervous system and, therefore, the body.

The Palmer Chiropractic University System maintains that a chiropractic examination incorporates the use of diagnostic procedures when indicated, including some or all of the following:

Patient history
Examination for subluxation complex
Biomechanical functional assessment
Spinal examination
Physical examination
Laboratory and imaging studies
The Palmer Chiropractic University System maintains that chiropractic care focuses primarily on the chiropractic adjustment and may include some or all of the following:

Exercise
Physiotherapy/ancillary procedures
Patient education
Participation in coordinated care
Nutrition
Extremity adjustments
Case management
Spinal hygiene, including ergonomics and posture





The Palmer Chiropractic University System does not accept as appropriate certain practices or procedures as forms of chiropractic care. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

Drugs
Acupuncture
Obstetrics
Manipulation and/or adjustment under anesthesia
Surgery
Colonic irrigation
Reduction of fractures
