Discusses chiropractic approaches to wellness and healing, and points to increasing evidence that the chiropractic is involved in wellness care. However, what is missing from this involvement in wellness care are good outcome studies of wellness interventions by chiropractors. Obtaining this evidence will require acceptance of a new research paradigm, one that moves beyond traditional empiricist methods to grounded, qualitative research whose purpose is discovery and understanding and not necessarily explanation.
