8 Modules to boost confidence, win debates, and clearly grasp the value of chiropractic care!

Why AST?

Intellectual Ammunition

Chiropractors throughout the world need to stand up for their practice and their patients on a rational, scientific basis. Chiropractors who address subluxation in their practices should not live in fear of being attacked.


Because the chiropractic profession has been under attack by organized medicine in the past and modern day ‘skeptics’ currently, we suffer from ‘negative brand equity’…meaning the general population doesn’t get chiropractic or think they have a reason to go to one – and further when they do come and you recommend extended care for addressing subluxation, patients many times don’t embrace it. Building credibility is a critical part of today’s strategy for the DC to break through to heightened success and more fun in practice!


A big challenge for DC’s is that the vertebral subluxation and the corresponding models of human health are vague and fuzzy in their minds. The result is that they feel a degree of dread and uncertainty in going to market and offering this service. A boost in confidence when you clearly connect the dots related to vertebral subluxation is a game changer that leads to more fun, less stress, and more profit!

The vertebral subluxation (VS) has been a paradox in the culture of chiropractic since its inception. On one hand, the concept of VS was the basis on which D.D. Palmer founded the profession of chiropractic. On the other, there are several chiropractic schools that don’t allow the use of the term in their clinics and organizations in the profession that recommend we abandon the term…and in extreme cases the very idea of it. It has gotten so ridiculous that we now have some regulatory bodies describing the subluxation as a historical construct and they forbid the use of the term in chiropractic marketing and advertising. We would not stand for this absurdity.

The evidence supporting and validating VS has grown significantly over recent years. Drs. Kent and Gentempo have been reviewing the literature monthly on the science portion of their extremely popular and world-famous On Purpose audio series. Dr. Kent, one of our profession’s most valuable intellectual assets, has now assembled the most important and up-to-date course on vertebral subluxation and you can experience it on line at your convenience!

What's In AST?

Unfortunately, even though there is a ton of compelling evidence for vertebral subluxation, access to this information is scarce. Very scarce. Some pieces are taught in some places, but the comprehensive case for VS is not…

until now!

AST is an online, 8 module training course that covers the critical, must know topics related to VS. Accompanying each module are 2 key things:

1) Action Guides. These are effective notes that keep you engaged as you absorb each module.

2) Enrichment Notes. These are reference articles for your personal library that provide additional information. These will come in very handy when you want to do a quick review or put together presentations of your own. Here is a brief outline of the modules:


Perhaps one of the hottest topics in science and healthcare today. Learn how lifestyle changes and chiropractic care affect genetics and future generations. The relationship of vertebral subluxation to epigenetics is profound and needs to be understood by all practitioners who wish to engage in conversation related to today’s science.

Neurophysiological Models of Vertebral Subluxation

It is so critical for every DC to have a fully thought through, integrated model of vertebral subluxation. It needs to be complete and in a sense, bullet-proof. One thing that many DC’s fail to realize is that there isn’t just one neurophysiological mechanism at play related to subluxation, but many. This is foundational stuff that every DC needs to know and know well. This is a big part of the critical intellectual ammunition that enters the interprofessional conversation about subluxation and chiropractic.

Experimental Evidence of the Adverse Effects of VS

Learn how animal models, advanced imaging and human studies validate what you do. Not only are there many forms of clinical evidence proving the effectiveness of adjusting subluxations, but there are also additional modes of experimental evidence that further bolster the incredible virtue of chiropractic care.

Biological Communications

This is at the center of the ‘new’ understanding in human physiology. Today’s science goes far beyond the limitations of synaptic transmission. There are semiconductor models, energetic models and holographic models that will help you understand the incredible power of the chiropractic adjustment. This module will excite as you learn the relationship between vertebral subluxation and 21st Century physiology.

Physics and Emerging Biological Models

Learn why and how biology must catch up with physics. Old biological models have fallen short in explaining so much about the expression of life and health in the human body…and especially failed to fully relate to why chiropractic works so well. However, new and exciting vitalistic models of biology that integrate with modern physics give a powerful context for why subluxation inhibits the expression of life in the system and why chiropractic so important.

Philosophy, Epistemology and Rules of Evidence

When you have contradictions in your basic philosophical premises, your arguments crumble, your confidence wanes, and your certainty falters. In this module we examine why you practice the way you do; and learn how chiropractic care saves money and gets results. Further, in this module, you will learn the proper rules of evidence and you will be able to shoot holes in the skeptics who seek to discredit you!

Clinical Assessments

None of this information truly matters unless you can deliver the vision through the use of appropriate, reliable, and valid assessments on a patient by patient basis. All this science must be applied in a way that is congruent with your understanding of vertebral subluxation. This means there must be an operational model of subluxation that you work from and meaningful indicators to tell you how to manage your patients for a lifetime. In this module, you will learn how this all turns into a daily reality in your practice.

Overview and History

Learn how the care you provide changes lives and review the extraordinary relevant history of our great profession. Understand how the concept of vertebral subluxation has evolved from the time of Hippocrates through today. Become familiar with the health care crisis facing the world today, and how chiropractic can play a crucial rule in formulating effective solutions

"Dr. Christopher Kent has long been one of our professions best educators. His ability to explain the philosophy, science and art of chiropractic has helped chiropractors to develop a greater understanding of vertebral subluxation. In a time when chiropractors are striving for greater certainty, credibility and clarity on the impact of vertebral subluxation, they are also looking for validation as to the effectiveness of the chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Kent is a master at bringing greater clarity to both concerns by presenting research and technology that allow the chiropractor to leave his presentation with a higher level of certainty and confidence in communicating the chiropractic message."

"Dr. Chris Kent has been a central figure in the contemporary chiropractic dialogue in areas of identity, research and international affairs. I have watched his influence in and impact on the profession grow as witnessed by him being named chiropractic researcher of the year in 1991 by the ICA, chiropractor of the year in 1998 and was the first chiropractor elected to chair the united nations NGO health Committee. It was my pleasure to aware Dr. Kent the first ever Life University Lifetime Achievement award in 2007. He continued his dedication to become an attorney for the purpose of using his degree to help preserve and defend the chiropractic profession. More than that a phenomenal speaker who brings scientific accuracy, interdisciplinary research, and precise chiropractic principles to audiences around the world. If I could only expose Life University Students to two or three speakers during their four years at chiropractic college, Dr. Kent would be in this elite group. He always finds a way to empower individuals to discover and design lives of both success and significance and science this is the mission of Life University he is a friend and resource of profound importance."

"To whom it may concern,
In my over 30 years in the chiropractic profession, that essentially started with the writing of a treatise on the vertebral subluxation from the available literature from dr. side Williams, then president of Life Chiropractic College, no single name came up more frequently within the chiropractic profession than that of Dr. Christopher Kent.
That Said, today there are no more living chiropractors who, in my experience, can and do communicate about the devastating effects of the vertebral subluxation on a human health more elegantly or effectively that Dr. Kent.
He has been a mentor and inspiration for thousands of chiropractors who, in many cases, learned about subluxation and became purposefully directed to communicate about it as well as correct it as a result of Dr. Kent’s teachings.
In 2010, I can think of no other person within the chiropractic profession with more credentials, communication skills or passion to teach about the vertebral subluxation than Dr. Kent."

"Dr. Christopher Kent is an icon in the chiropractic profession. He is one of the most sought after speakers today. after his inspiring speech at the parker Las Vegas seminar to thousands, he received one of the best standing ovations I have ever seen. If you are ready to have a defining moment in your life and in your practice, then Dr. Kent is who you want to experience. You will be glad you did!"

Dr Fabrizio Mancini
President of parker College and Seminars.

"I believe that Dr. Christopher Kent not only knows so much more about the entire subluxation complex, its causes, effects and how to deal with them as anyone alive today. but more importantly he has the ability to take extremely complex and difficult concepts and boil them down to something so simple and easy that even mere mortals like you and I can understand.

If Dr. Kent is teaching a class on subluxation I am going to be there and if we are to take our rightful place as the recognized leaders of a true health care system worldwide we all need to be on these calls"

"I believe that there are very few people who have spent more time, money and mental capacity on the understanding of the devastating effects of the vertebral subluxation than Dr. Christopher Kent, J.D. His early pioneering research into the first-generation subluxation station was the first major step in chiropractic detection of subluxation technology since X-rays and the old hand held nervo-scopes from the 1030’s. as a result of a brilliant mind and significant commitment, no one has had the ability to spend more time studying, quantifying, documentation and objectifying the vertebral subluxation than Dr. Kent. The result is a genius linguist with the purpose and certainty that is unmatched in many realms, including that in the understating of the vertebral subluxation."
