Based upon a vitalistic approach to health and the correction of the vertebral subluxation complex, LIFE views health care in the following manner:
► CONDITION-BASED CARE
Care that is provided to the patient for a specific health issue until that health issue is resolved or stabilized.
► CORRECTIVE-BASED CARE Care that is provided to the patient who either had no specific health issue at entrance or the health issue at entrance was resolved/stabilized by the condition-based care. The corrective-based care phase presumes that the patient has clinical findings consistent with subluxation or another health issue that is asymptomatic but requires correction through the point of maximum possible correction.
► WELLNESS DEVELOPMENT-BASED CARE
Care provided to the patient who has minimal or no consistent or persistent clinical findings. Care is provided for the purpose of reaching optimal performance within the aspects of Physical, Emotional, Social, Intellectual, Environmental and Spiritual well-being.
This vitalistic approach to health divides our continuing education offerings into the chiropractic-related courses, and courses whose content is offered through degree programs throughout the University.
