Chiropractic Odyssey – A Journey of Practice, Observation and Reading Research
Dr. Faye’s new book “Chiropractic Odyssey – a journey of practice, observation and reading research” starts with him at 16 years old suffering from the Autoimmune, Polyarthritis of Rheumatic Fever that chiropractic manipulation helped his body return to normal. He relates his experiences and the references that caused his behavioral changes that lead to busy practices in three countries, the development of MPI Seminars, writing a textbook, and producing video demonstrations of hundreds of palpations and their concomitant manipulations to restore the function of the joints before rehabilitation. Dr. Faye realized that denying the dogma of early chiropractic is not enough, it has to be replaced with rational research, concepts, and models of practice that account for our clinical successes.
Dr. Leonard John Faye graduated from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 1960. He has had an unusual professional career associating, practicing in three countries, a founder and teacher at the Anglo-European Chiropractic College, clinician at CMCC, and technique instructor at Cleveland Chiropractic College in Los Angeles.
He was the first chiropractor appointed by the Canadian Track and Field Olympic Committee in 1984, he was one of the first three honorary fellows of the Royal College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences, started and originated the five, MPI 12 hour seminars, conducted a full five-day spine and extremities symposium for the Swiss Chiropractic Association, wrote a textbook published in 1985 on manipulation and its clinical application, produced VHS, DVDs and now online distance learning of spinal and extremity palpation and manipulation.
He has spearheaded the paradigm shift from a static misalignment model to a functional model of chiropractic practice.
