WHAT DO YOU THINK CHIROPRACTIC CAN DO?
Do you think Chiropractic is about fixing bad backs and necks? Yes and no. Chiropractic includes bad backs and necks, and takes care of them better and safer than anyone, but fixing bad backs and necks are not the sole purpose of Chiropractic, and should not be the criteria for whether you become a chiropractic patient or not. Besides providing: headache, migraine, whiplash, joint, muscle spasms, neck, middle, low back, sciatica, shoulder, arm, hand, leg, hip, foot, carpal tunnel, stress, insomnia, and arthritis pain relief, chiropractic offers so much more to your pathway to optimum health. From auto, sports, acute and chronic conditions, exercise and ergonomic to conditioning programs, we are here to help you.
The chiropractor works on the spine. Inside the spine is the spinal cord and the roots, or beginnings, of the spinal nerves, which constitute the communication link between the brain, and everything else. Old and new spinal injuries that have healed wrong, known as a subluxation or Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC), interfere with the normal flow of communication between the brain and the body, allowing disease to occur, or, at least, less than optimal function, dis-ease, an absence of wellness. Chiropractors remove, reduce and prevent VSC through the chiropractic adjustment, allowing the return of better health. Chiropractic is the only profession concerned with Vertebral Subluxation Complex.
Chiropractic does not diagnose or treat disease. That is the practice of medicine. Rather than fighting disease, Chiropractic allows better health.
WHAT CHIROPRACTIC CAN DO FOR YOU!
Chiropractic removes, reduces and/or prevents Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC) with chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic is always for the greater good of your body, physically, mentally and socially, allowing for the possibilities of: more energy, better sleep, decreased or no pain and stiffness, improved athletic abilities, improved breathing and posture, better digestion, a more balanced reproductive system, better elimination, improved circulation, a more balanced immune response, improved concentration, memory, emotional stability, improved interpersonal relationships, better healing, etc. You can expect to feel more vital in general, the way we were born to feel.
After beginning Chiropractic care, many people have told me that they had spent their whole life not living at their full potential and now they are.......It is never too late to take care of your health, and remember, "sickness is an expression of disorder and health is an expression of order"..... Welcome to Chiropractic.......
The Founder of Chiropractic
"I have never considered it beneath my dignity to do anything to
relieve human suffering."
Dr. Daniel David Palmer (1845-1913)
The Chiropractic Story
The principle of chiropractic was discovered September 18, 1895 by Dr. Daniel Palmer in Davenport, Iowa. On that day, Palmer was in his office carrying on a shouted conversation with the deaf janitor in the building, Harvey Lillard.
Lillard was explaining in shouts to Palmer that, about 17 years earlier, while working in a cramped, stooped position, something "popped" in his back. Since that time, his hearing had become progressively worse.
Dr. Palmer, a curious, intelligent man, examined Lillard's back and found a painful, misaligned vertebra at the spot where Lillard had described feeling the pain. He suspected a connection between this misaligned vertebra and Lillard's impaired hearing. He reasoned that is something had gone wrong in his back and had caused deafness, the correction of the misaligned vertebra should bring back Lillard's hearing.
Using his hands, Palmer repositioned the vertebra with a gentle thrust to Lillard's back. Lillard's hearing improved immediately. During the next few days, Palmer continued the treatments on Lillard's spine. Within a week, Lillard was able to hear as well as anybody and was telling anybody who would listen about Dr. Palmer's hand treatments.
Dr. Palmer's fame quickly spread as he proved that the hand treatments were effective in all sorts of disease disorders and dysfunctions. He became a world-renowned specialist in the spine and nerve system.
