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.
