Chiropractic is a natural, holistic approach to health care that focuses on the body’s ability to recover. It involves spinal decompression and other forms of manual therapy to correct the underlying cause of an illness or condition, rather than just treating superficial symptoms.
What Is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic is a holistic health care system focused on preventing and treating disorders and diseases by adjusting the body’s alignment to correct subluxations. A chiropractor uses hands-on techniques, such as spinal adjustments, stretching, and joint mobilization, to restore normal function and relieve pain. Chiropractic care is typically provided by chiropractors who have completed a 4-year undergraduate program, but some states require additional training or certificates.
How Can We Help?
The human body is a series of bones that are held together by joints and muscles. If these joints become misaligned or compressed, they can cause pain and discomfort throughout your body, sometimes leading to severe complications over time, such as muscle weakness/spasms, joint arthritis, and other severe illnesses. Chiropractic care helps correct these misalignments by realigning your spine so it functions properly. Chiropractic adjustments can also improve blood flow and mobility in the joints and muscles, allowing them to operate more efficiently without further injury or pain.
History of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic is one of the oldest healthcare professions in the world. The earliest evidence of chiropractic care dates back to at least 2500 BC when the Chinese Emperor Shen Nung wrote about using the bones of animals as a method of healing.
The first chiropractors were known as “physicians” in England’s 13th-century medical system. In 1892, William Eames invented an X-ray, the emitter machine called an X-ray emitter. He later worked with his son-in-law, D.D. Palmer, who founded the College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, in 1895.
