Tone, Tensegrity and Chiropractic
The Chronicle of Chiropractic
D.D. Palmer, wrote extensively about the concept of tone. According to Palmer: “Life is the expression of tone. In that sentence is the basic principle of Chiropractic. Tone is the normal degree of nerve tension.
Tone is expressed in functions by the normal elasticity, activity, strength and excitability of the various organs, as observed in a state of health. Consequently, the cause of disease is any variation of tone – nerves too tense or too slack.”
