3rd Paradigm Chiropractic
There have been several paradigms or models of thought specific to the chiropractic profession over the course of its history.
At Noosa Junction Chiropractic we deliver chiropractic care specifically through the 3rd paradigm model. We see this model as the best, most defensible, scientifically accurate model that describes how chiropractic can benefit the people that use it.
What is 3rd Paradigm Chiropractic?
One of the fore-fathers of the Chiropractic profession, Reggie Gold, D.C. introduced and argued for the acceptance of 3rd Paradigm chiropractic.
This model is truly what many (if not all) chiropractors actually do with their families and friends, yet they tend to avoid communicating about this idea with their clients or the general public.
It is about being regularly checked for subluxation, irrespective of condition, symptom or dysfunction AND if subluxation is present, correcting it.
The 3rd paradigm is totally non-therapeutic in its intent and practice. There is no claim to cure all (or any) disease, and there is no attempt to define a causal relationship between subluxation and any particular disease or symptom. There is no disease treatment focus at all.
The presence or absence of disease is irrelevant.
Every human being, sick or well, newborn or aged, regardless of nutrition, exercise, occupation, sex, race, religion, and all other factors of life, is better off without vertebral subluxation.
We live in a country that spends billions of dollars a year on the treatment of sickness and disease, but precious little on health.
As chiropractors we hope to lead the world into a new and more intelligent way of thinking, not follow the mistakes of the past.
3rd Paradigm Chiropractic is not about health and sickness.
It is about the recognition that vertebral subluxation causes more than just lost health potential and loss of every human potential.
The nervous system is the coordinating system whereby the countless billions of body cells interact in harmony to express mind, body, spirit, emotion, artistic talent, speed, stamina, coordination, and family relations.
