Spinal Health Assessment

The Evidence-Based Chiropractic Protocols Spinal Health Assessment (SHA) is the first spinal health assessment that allows the valid and reliable detection and severity rating of Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC) or segmental joint dysfunction. Using the peer-reviewed diagnostic criteria for VSC or segmental joint dysfunction (restricted segmental motion, segmental muscle hypertonicity, and segmental joint and muscle allodynia) we have created the first valid, evidence-based, standardized assessment protocol to assess both the presence and severity of VSC.


Health Risk Assessment

The Evidence-Based Lifestyles Protocols Health Risk Assessment is the first health measurement that assesses Allostatic Load (adaptive physiological status), Lifestyle Stressor Load, and Physical and Psychosocial Quality of Life and then analyzes and combines this data into a single and direct rating of current and predicted future wellness and prevention - the Wellness and Prevention Index.

The most easily understood, evidence-based, undeniable argument ever put forward regarding the indisputable facts that:

1. The era of diagnosing and treating the effects (symptoms, risk factors) of diagnosed chronic illness with drugs as the only offered solution has never worked, will never work, costs millions of lives, costs trillions of dollars, is destroying healthcare, and must come to an end.

2. A new evidence-based era of addressing the causes of chronic illness (chronic lifestyle and environmental stressors) will save millions of lives, will save trillions of dollars, will save healthcare, and must come to a start.
