Enhancing a Biopsychosocial Approach

Part of the Evidence in Action series by Palmer College of Chiropractic

The concept of caring for the whole patient is not new. As early as the 5th century BC, Hippocrates described the importance of attending to the person behind the disease rather than the disease itself. He described psychological, social and physical elements that variously combine and contribute to a person’s health. Assessing and addressing all three components (biological, psychological and social conditions) contributing to health is called a biopsychosocial approach.
