History Of Chiropractic Care

Did you know that chiropractic dates back to the time of Hippocrates?

He believed that if the spine was misaligned, it greatly contributed to the health of an individual.

The modern day school of chiropractic dates back to 1895, when Dr. Daniel Palmer adjusted a man that had lost his hearing 17 years prior. The story goes that prior to losing his hearing the man had heard something pop in his back. Upon the adjustment of the man’s misaligned vertebrae his hearing greatly improved.

While the medical community criticized this new technique for healing the body, the people who followed in these footsteps found an amazing new way of dealing with illness and disease. Dr. Palmer’s theories are still discussed in the chiropractic industry today. Without this man’s input into medicine in a time where he was greatly discredited, the millions of people today who enjoy the life-changing benefits may never have had this opportunity. There is still a school named after Dr. Daniel Palmer as well as over 20 schools and thousands of chiropractic students across the country.

What To Expect

Going to the Chiropractor is a new experience for many of us. Maybe we’ve heard through a friend or have done some research online. It’s possible that you are just fed up with living in pain and it’s time to do something about it. In either case, your first visit to the chiropractor will really be about getting to know the chiropractor and discussing your history, current condition and goals.

As with any doctor’s visit, you’ll start by finishing some new patient paperwork. Upon meeting with the doctor, you’ll discuss your concerns and expectations as well as have the chance to ask any questions you may have. We will perform a physical examination and most likely take a few x-rays to see what your current state is. Once this is complete, we’ll take a look at the overall results of our conversation and the exams. Together, we’ll come up with a plan of action which will begin when you are completely satisfied and ready to move forward.

About Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic treatment is a general way of examining the human anatomy. It’s centered on the notion that the body sustains and heals itself. The human body is essentially entirely controlled by the brain by way of its connection through the spinal cord and the extensive systems of nerves that structure the body. When this arrangement doesn’t function at top efficiency, the whole of the human body is deficient.


In the world of chiropractic treatment, pills and medication are not used as a go-to treatment for patients. While supplements and proper nutrition are virtually constantly a part of the bigger picture, medications and prescriptions are often viewed as quick fixes to alleviate symptoms instead of going straight to the source and mending the actual issue.

How Does It Work?

Chiropractic is based on the idea of removing imbalances both structural and postural in an effort to allow our body to heal itself. For this to happen the network of nerves and signals from your brain, down your spinal cord, to the network of nerves must be allowed to flow freely without any interruption. Chiropractors have the ability and skill to remove these interruptions or misalignments and allow the body to perform as it was meant to.

If you’ve ever been in a car accident, played a sport, fell down or just bumped into something too hard, it’s very possible that you are not functioning at your best due to a misalignment. While there are many potential mechanical or structural causes for misalignment, there are also chemical reasons. For instance, if you smoke or drink excessively or even just have a poor diet, the chemical issues in your body can eventually cause underlying conditions and disease to appear.

Allowing a chiropractor to get you back on track both chemically and structurally will bring your body back to the proper state it should be in to perform at its peak.

Wellness Tips

These simple movements or daily routines can end up hurting you if you’re not careful. Make sure to do these simple activities the right way as outlined below:

Posture. Posture. Posture. Make sure that you keep your chin up and don’t slouch. If you know that you are going to be standing for a long period of time, make sure that you wear comfortable shoes.

Make sure that you are getting up every 20 minutes to stretch. The type of chair you have is extremely important. It should fit you correctly so that your back touches the chair and your feet are on the floor with knees at a 90-degree angle. Try to avoid looking down at your computer screen. It should be at eye level.

Make sure you have a chair that is supportive. When you are forced to sit for a long period of time, for instance at a desk job, make sure to get up and stretch every 20 minutes. Sit with your back against the chair, feet firmly on the floor. Do not cross your legs.

Lifting objects are one of the most common ways to injure yourself. Even if it is a light object, twisting or pulling in the wrong direction when you’re not stretched out can have a damaging effect on muscles and the spine. You always want to bend at the knees and avoid lifting anything you know is too heavy.

If you know that you are going to be working or playing for a while, make sure that you are adequately stretched out and warmed up. Even if it’s something light like gardening or just pushing your child on a bike, it’s easy to pull something if you’re not warmed up.

If you’re forced to use the telephone for a long period of time, a speaker or a headset is a must. By all means, try to avoid cradling the phone between your neck and your shoulder as this could cause you to damage the muscles or vertebrae in that area.

Straining your neck or back while you’re sleeping is a very common occurrence. We often fall asleep in strange positions where we are not supported properly or our necks are at an odd angle. Make sure that if you are going to nap or watch tv in bed, that you are in a supportive position.

Adjustments, also referred to as manipulations are the slight shifting of vertebrae in the spine. The goal of this alteration is to straighten vertebrae that have been misplaced for a variety of reasons reaching from day-to-day activity to pain sustained during a car crash.

Once these vertebrae are displaced, it has a general intrinsic outcome from muscular to the central nervous system. Without appropriate configuration and movement of all nerves and systems in the body from the brain, humans are unable to function at their peak.

Going to the Chiropractor is a novelty for many people. Perhaps you’ve heard through the grapevine or maybe even did some online research. It’s likely that you may just be sick of with living in pain and discomfort and you’ve decided that it’s time to finally do something drastic about it. In any case, the first visit to the chiropractor will actually be about becoming comfortable with the chiropractor and discussing the history of your pain, and any current conditions or goals.

Chiropractic treatment is grounded in the notion of eliminating disproportions both structural and postural in an effort to permit the body to begin the healing process on its own. For this to occur the system of nerves and indicators from the brain, down the spinal cord, to the system of nerves should be permitted to move easily without any disruption. Chiropractors have the capability and dexterity to eliminate these disruptions or misalignments and let the body perform as it was intended to.
