The profession of chiropractic was first founded by Daniel David Palmer in 1895. Since then chiropractic care has evolved into a health care profession that has helped people all over the world.
Chiropractic focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. The word “chiropractic” means “to be done by hand”. This means the primary treatment is not through conventional means like drugs or surgery. Therefore, chiropractic care is implemented through a chiropractic adjustment.
Chiropractic adjustments are a very safe, specific, and controlled force applied to a joint to restore proper function and mobility, which in turn supports the nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments reduce pain, increase movement and improve optimal health and well-being.
