Chiropractic is not a new concept. While the art, science and philosophy of chiropractic is still young, the idea of spinal adjustment dates back to around 2700 BC. Ancient Chinese, Greeks, Egyptians, and many other civilizations understood the relationship between a healthy spine and a healthy individual.
D.D. Palmer, the "Father of Chiropractic," discovered in 1895 that a specific force delivered to a misaligned vertebra can relieve nerve interference. His son, B.J. Palmer, developed chiropractic into the well-respected form of health care it is today.
As a chiropractor, my focus is to restore your bodies own inborn ability to be healthy. When under proper control of your nerve system, all the cells, tissues, and organs of your body are designed to resist disease and ill health. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and remove interference to your natural state of being healthy.
A common interference to the nerve system is the 24 moving bones of the spinal column. A loss of normal motion or position of these bones can irritate or impair the function of the nerve system. This can disrupt the transmission of controlling nerve impulses. With improved spinal function there is often improved nerve system function. We help remove interference that may be impairing normal health.
Since the primary focus of your chiropractic care is improved nerve system function, chiropractic care can have a positive effect on many health conditions not normally thought of as "back" problems. Each of us is designed to be healthy. Chiropractic care helps restore optimum function.
