The history of Chiropractic can be traced back to a Canadian living in Davenport, Iowa in the late 19th century. In 1895 D.D Palmer established the field of Chiropractic focusing on the subluxation and interference with the nervous system. Much has changed since that time frame but, the fundamentals remain the same. The art, science and philosophy of Chiropractic stresses the simple premise that when the nervous system is FUNCTIONING at its highest level….then you as a human being are FUNCTIONING at your highest level. It is the Chiropractors’ exclusive mission to remove the threats to this functioning posed by vertebral subluxations.
By doing this and realigning the various vertebrate along the spine, Chiropractic can ensure a happy, healthy lifestyle. Chiropractic in essence does not treat disease directly, but allows the body to heal itself through the natural processes developed in your body since the beginning of our kind on earth. You see it is not the band-aid that heals your cut; it’s the wisdom of your very own body!Back
