What is Chiropractic
Chiropractic is built on this truth: Health is the body’s normal state. Good health is perfectly natural.
The chiropractic profession was founded in 1895 by a man named D.D. Palmer who began to develop a concept that the body has an internal power to heal itself. By choice, chiropractors choose not to use drugs or surgery, and utilize natural approaches to allow the body to heal. Chiropractors treat primarily the spine and its attachments to restore function and health.
They are facilitators of health and utilize a variety of approaches, including adjustments, physical therapeutic modalities, exercise routines, nutritional recommendations, orthotics, and daily living modifications.
There are roughly 70,000 doctors of chiropractic who are concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of many disorders of the body. A variety of conditions are treated, ranging from back and neck pain to shoulder, hand or feet disorders.
Doctors of chiropractic are fully accredited and licensed in every state and have become well accepted as a complementary healthcare.
Did you know?
The problem with a medical approach to health is that medicine deals with sickness care or crisis care, and not wellness care or true health care.
The side effects of drugs and surgery are the third leading cause of preventable death and the fourth leading cause of death in North America.
Chiropractic treatment neither removes nor adds anything to the body. It stimulates self-healing, the way our bodies were designed to overcome disease and distress.
