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.
