Chiropractic Care has been around since 1895 and was invented by a man named Daniel David Palmer. The word ‘Chiropractic’ comes from the Greek word ‘cheir’ which means “hand” and the Greek word ‘praktos’ which means “done” put together it means to “be done by hand.”
In 1913, the first state law licensing chiropractors was passed. Today chiropractic care is recognized by all 50 states in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Great Britain, Australia, Japan and Switzerland.
Chiropractic care focuses on the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. Most often patients that seek chiropractic care are looking for a healthy non-surgical way to correct ailments ranging from lower back pain, neck pain, sports injuries, car accident injuries, pain the joints, and even headaches.
Chiropractic Care is able to treat these ailments because the spine is the core of the body and the gateway which the entire nervous systems passes through. Without proper alignment of the spine, the nervous system cannot function optimally. Chiropractors, also known as Doctors of Chiropractors (DCs) or Chiropractic Physicians, practice a non-surgical, drug-free, holistic hands on approach to treat their patients.
This hands on approach is often called and most commonly known as Spinal Manipulation or a Chiropractic Adjustment. This technique or manipulation restores proper alignment in the spine and other joints in the body to allow proper nervous system communication to all areas. It is very common that once the adjustment begins, the function of your body can improve on every level. After experiencing Chiropractic adjustments many patients experience better health, reduced disease, infirmities, pain, and an overall improved well being.
