The Chiropractic Principles

by Terry A. Rondberg, D.C.

"THE CHIROPRACTIC PRINCIPLES" Deductive Reasoning: The sum of the parts is MORE than just some of its parts! 

A Universal Intelligence is in all matter and continually gives to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence.


The expression of this intelligence through matter is the chiropractic meaning of life.

Life is a Triune having three necessary united factors, namely, Intelligence, Force and Matter.

In order to have 100% Life, there must be 100% intelligence, 100% Force, 100% Matter.

A living thing has an inborn intelligence within its body, called Innate Intelligence.

The mission of Innate Intelligence is to maintain the material of the body in active organisation.

There is 100% of Innate Intelligence in every living thing, the required amount, proportional to its organisation. The amount of force created by intelligence is always 100%

The function of Innate Intelligence is to adapt Universal forces and matter for use in the body, so that all parts of the body will have coordinated action for mutual benefit.

Innate Intelligence adapts forces and matter for the body, but is limited by the limitations of matter.

The forces of Innate intelligence never injure or destroy the structures in which they work.

The forces of Innate Intelligence operate through or over the nervous system in animal bodies.

There can be interference with the transmission of Innate forces.

Interference with the transmission of Innate forces causes dis-ease.

Interference with the transmission in the body can be caused directly or indirecly by subluxations in the spinal column. 

Chiropractic has many basic principles upon which all its philosophy, art, and science is based. The ones listed here are some of the most important ones which have guided the profession since its earliest development. Many of them are only now being accepted by other sciences...others are almost universally accepted.

These principles follow a simple progression of deductive logic. If you accept the major premise, the other principles fall into place almost automatically.


Comment: When I was a child, there were many active churches.  Those who interceded upon the parishioner's behalf proffered the common options of eternal hell and damnation and the alternative of eternity in heaven 

My lifetime has seen society end that Christian cultural authority, many priests and parsons lost their influence and became as ordinary men. Empty churches, closed and sold.  For most, no personal God, no ten commandments, no eternal punishment or reward, lives distained for eternal oblivion. As Darryn Hinch proclaimed when being interviewed after his sacking; I am just an ant.

I remain comfortable with this couple of Albert Einstein quotes:   The deep emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.

"I cannot conceive of a personal God who would directly influence the actions of individuals, or would directly sit in judgment on creatures of his own creation. I cannot do this in spite of the fact that mechanistic causality has, to a certain extent, been placed in doubt by modern science. [He was speaking of Quantum Mechanics and the breaking down of determinism.] My religiosity consists in a humble admiration of the infinitely superior spirit that reveals itself in the little that we, with our weak and transitory understanding, can comprehend of reality. Morality is of the highest importance -- but for us, not for God." - Albert Einstein 'The Human Side', 1954

Harking back to chiropractic philosophy: "These principles follow a simple progression of deductive logic. If you accept the major premise, (re a Universal Intelligence) the other principles fall into place almost automatically."

As a chiropractor who puts nothing into the body, nor takes anything from the body, I work with the power that made the body and heals the body. I am the servant, not the master. Though now irrelevant to most people, my philosophy, the why I do what I do, remains central to my being.    

There are enormous ramifications, for the patient who comprehends chiropractic philosophy.
