About Chiropractic

The word chiropractic is derived from the Greek language and means "to treat with the hands". The chiropractic history began over 100 years ago, when founder D.D. Palmer (1845-1914) through the application of a chiropractic adjustment assisted his first patient Harvey Lillard to regain the ability to hear. Thus D.D.Palmer postulated the first chiropractic theory of disease.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is an art, science and philosophy of natural healing, based on a principle that the body inherently has the ability to heal itself as long as there is no interference to the nervous system. Chiropractic education is a five year university program and prepares a graduating chiropractor for a career in providing safe, gentle, drug free healthcare. Ongoing research in chiropractic methods is providing a deeper understanding of the effect of chiropractic care and further establishing a scientific basis for its methods. Chiropractic care is focused on the improvement of spinal function and its resultant effect on the nervous system. Removing what we call subluxations and thereby reducing or removing interference to the nervous system the body can begin the process of reestablishing balance and begin healing.

What is a Chiropractic Subluxation?

Simply stated a subluxation can be defined as one or more vertebrae out of their proper alignment which causes interference with the transmission of the body’s communication (nervous) system. Interference creates chaos in the body which can be the source of most of the conditions affecting us. Removing this interference allows the body to find balance and return to optimal health. Chiropractic addresses this interference.

Research done by medical authors today such as Sir Sidney Sunderlund, Rene Calliet M.D., Ruth Jackson M.D., all concur on the original chiropractic premise that a vertebral subluxation narrows the hole between the vertebrae through which passes the spinal nerve and causes nerve interference.

With the advent of more and more sophisticated tools used to identify the nature of energy as it relates to the human body, the concept of the chiropractic subluxation will surely be further verified.

Subluxation = Interference

How do I know that a
chiropractor can help me?

The truth is you can't possibly know if chiropractic can help you unless you try.

What ever problem you might have, even if you don't associate it with the spine, it is directly related to your nervous system. Since chiropractic aids in the proper functioning of the nervous system, chiropractic care can have a positive effect on any condition that you are experiencing. An optimum spine and optimum functioning nervous system are two essential factors in your return to, as well as maintaining optimal health.
