WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?
“The Doctor of the Future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and the care and prevention of disease.” -Thomas Edison
Chiropractic is a philosophy, art, and science of natural healing. Chiropractic as we know it was not founded until 1895 when Harvey Lillard’s a deaf janitor had his hearing restored after D.D. Palmer adjusted his spine; However methods of manipulating the spine to restore health have been recorded as far back as the Egyptians.
It was B.J. Palmer, son of D.D. Palmer, who took the concepts of Chiropractic his father discovered and developed them into our modern understanding of this unique health profession.
Chiropractic is the most POPULAR, fastest growing healthcare system in the world. We promote a healthy, DRUG-FREE lifestyle which is a true alternative to drugs and surgery.
Chiropractic for pain is widely popular; however Chiropractic was never intended to be for pain reduction. Principled Chiropractors analyze your body for SUBLUXATIONS which are interferences in the Nervous System that affect body function and overall health. Yes these Subluxations can cause pain, but quite often subluxations have been noted as “silent killers” as they can affect any and all of our bodily functions. While the adjustment is not different based on symptoms, Chiropractic has profound results with everything from infantile acid reflux, constipation, digestive issues, High blood Pressure, Psychological issues including depression, anxiety, autism and ADHD. Much research has been done to also indicate that by restoring the health of the nervous system through the removal of SUBLUXATIONS, that women with previous infertility issues have been able to conceive.
By removing the Subluxations that interfere with the normal healing process of the body, Chiropractors can restore that innate ability of the body to heal itself from ABOVE, DOWN, INSIDE, OUT without the use of drugs or surgery in order for you to achieve YOUR best Health.
