What Is Chiropractic
A complete lifestyle approach to health.
Chiropractic came about in 1895 when Daniel David Palmer was studying science and metaphysics. A gentleman had complained to him of suffering hearing loss after having a pop in his back some years earlier while working in a bent over position as a janitor. After Palmer worked on a lump in his back, the gentleman said that he regained hearing. * From here, Palmer went on to work with a patient suffering from “heart trouble." As he manipulated the spine the vertebrae area went back into alignment and the irritation resolved .* While today chiropractic is believed to be related to only back or neck injuries, it serves to treat the whole body.
