Brief Description



It is evident, after almost 50 years in the musculoskeletal pain relief field as a science-based chiropractor, that the Wellness concept is still fractured into multiple ideologies to the point that one needs to ask what kind of Wellness one is talking about when one hears the term Wellness being used.

WRM developed from the clinical observation in a chiropractic practice, that people were not doing all that they could be doing to help themselves. That problem impacted their recovery. People often became cyclical in their Chiropractic needs. Helping people with that problem brought its own problems in that it was quite time consuming for the clinician. A more effective use of professional time combined and balanced with a client/patient's own self-help time was needed. When the idea that not doing what Wellness science was suggesting, would bring clear Risk along with it, then the concept of Wellness Risk was born. AND, then well, we need to manage that risk. Without numbers it is very difficult to manage anything.


Brief Description of a Major WRM Goal

- - - - - - -

To achieve this goal a three-phase process has been developed.

  1. A comprehensive, thorough, anonymous measurement process was created to indicate numbers representing a person’s compliance with the science on multidimensional Wellness.
  2. A Wellness Risk Management Workshop program was developed to help teach people how to help themselves following the leadership offered by science in the measurement process.
  3. A statistical gathering program was drafted to help business and industry monitor WRM within their own workforce.

The measurement process measures three basic modules plus one add-on.

There is a nutritional Add-On module to flesh-out the nutrition category more effectively for complementary and allied professions.

We put numbers to multidimensional Wellness. The field of Chronic Disease Prevention Strategies pretty much speaks for itself. The following five pillars are each important for healing and for maintaining Wellness. The WRM client involves themselves exclusively with the science on these five pillars.

Dr. Ouellette’s Five Pillars of Optimal Health Secrets:
• Nutrition
• Exercise
• Spinal Health
• Rest & Relaxation
• Attitude & Perspective in life


Wellness Risk Measurement Protocols:
A Dual Functioning Measurement Tool Online

There are thirty questionnaires in one online measurement questionnaire program at TheQ.ca many of which were used in clinical practice during the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and onward. The timely endurance of this science data attests to its lasting value.

Wellness Risk Measurement Scores:
Thirty eight numbers are provided in a one page Wellness Risk Management Progress Chart indicating a percentage of 100% optimal health on each score. These scores illuminate a Wellness profile on the client. Progress is tracked by comparing subsequent measurements.

Wellness Risk Management Workshops:
After we measure, analyse, identify, prioritize and motivate. We provide Wellness Risk Management Workshops to help motivate people to complete their eight items in their customized Action Plan. Completing that plan will improve a client's Wellness Risk score numbers bringing their health closer to optimal health. Workshops are where Chronic Disease Prevention Strategies are provided through the Action Plan List.

Wellness Risk Management Action Plan List:
Eight items are on an Action Plan To-Do List located in the 35 page Wellness Risk Management Report of Findings. This report is provided in workshops after measurement at TheQ.ca. Additional action plan items are provided to clients as needed. These science-based actions are customized to an individual's needs and are posted to the codename Report of Findings for anonymous protection. The total number of action plan items suitable for the list is 126. If people are performing all 126 items then they are going to be very healthy indeed. Eight prioritized actions are initially provided for completion by the client.


Note: The Present State of Wellness Risk Management

WRM is designed to put numbers to Wellness Risk via an online self-help measurement program. This self-help issue is a gap that is left in the very large clinical field in our society. Wellness Risk Management intends to plug that gap. That gap is involved with helping people help themselves at home with multidimensional Wellness and Chronic Disease Prevention Strategies identified by science. The particular place for the Workshops in WRM, is in the HOMEWORK field a client is asked to become involve with. The problem with HOMEWORK for a client, or patient, is the multitude of ideologies out there in the healthcare field. WRM is standardising this problem. Once measurement is done and numbers are known, then workshops begin.

A brief questionnaire is simply inadequate to address the program model needs. The measurement questionnaire must be thorough, comprehensive and complex sufficiently to detect people filling the form out in bad faith. A model now exists and we are waiting on a final statistical test phase before launching.
