Chiropractic emerged from a time and a place. It has a history. The history of chiropractic has shaped its philosophy. The cultural and social forces are the collective ground of chiropractic’s history.
There are many approaches to history. We aim to be inclusive of all perspectives. We do however give more weight to those perspectives on history, which include the most perspectives. We aim to provide a history that includes the personal, behavioral, cultural, and social. Thus all of the histories herein may be integrated and viewed through one framework.
