Salutogenesis a different way to think about health!
Chiropractors have historically thought about Health as something that comes from inside the person. It was initially called “Innate” by DD Palmer the first chiropractor. Innate was described by a famous physiologist, William Stirling as a cell or organisms ability to react to its environment. The same idea follows through in our model of health care, we believe that when an organism is in it’s optimum state it is much better equipped to deal correctly with its environment and so remain healthy.
This type of thinking has become know as the Salutogenesis model, this comes from the language roots Saluto meaning Health and Genesis meaning the origin of.
