Chiropractic Facts

Facts About Chiropractic:

The Doctor of Chiropractic analyzes your spine for vertebral Subluxation, a form of spine and nerve stress. A Doctor of Chiropractic uses his / her hands and other analysis tools, corrects / removes any spinal nerve stress using various spinal adjustment techniques.

Subluxations come from stress that may occur in infancy from a difficult birth or childhood falls. Subluxations may occur later in life from, emotional stress, tension stress, environmental factors, or violent injuries such as automobile accidents or sports injuries.

Nearly everyone will eventually get spinal nerve stress and is affected by Subluxation. This is the reason we need to have our spines checked even if we aren’t in pain, because pain is the last signal that arrives to tell us something is wrong. Just as we get our eyes, teeth, and blood pressure checked, everyone should be checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic.

Chiropractors perform treatments by working with the bones and nerves of the spinal column. Chiropractors spend years of highly specialized training in order to locate where misplaced spinal vertebrae are impinging the nerves which travel down the spinal cord and out through the spinal column to the muscles, organs, and glands of the body.

First Chiropractic adjustment was in 1895 by D.D. Palmer on his deaf janitor Harvey Lillard.
