What is Chiropractic?
Many Chiropractors would like you to believe they were smart enough to "invent" manipluations or spinal adjustments... The fact is, Manipulation of the Spine and Extremities extends all the way back to Hippocrates(460 BC). Yes, the father of modern medicine utlized maipulative therapy. Osteopathy then carried on the techniques, until DD Palmer back in 1895 developed the Art, Science and Philosophy for the Chiropractic Profession. For the past 100+ years Chiropractors have developed and mastered the art of manipulation as a natural and safe method for treating the spine and extremities.
Chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is lacking.
