Chiropractic is the healthcare discipline that centers on the relationship between anatomy and physiology, with a primary focus on the movement and structure of the spine and how this affects the musculoskeletal and neurological systems. The practice of chiropractic utilizes this natural connection between structure and function to help the body heal without the use of medication or surgical intervention.
Written records and depictions of chiropractic care date back thousands of years. Most notably, the Greeks took a keen interest in the spine and the nervous system. Hippocrates, “The Father of Medicine,” wrote several pieces on spinal and joint care and their interconnectedness with good health. He is noted for writing, “Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases.”
Daniel David Palmer further developed chiropractic care in the late 1800s. He chose the name Chiropractic based on the Greek words cheir (meaning “hand”) and praktos (meaning “done”), or “done by hand.” Today, chiropractic doctors study extensively in spinal analysis and are the only health care professionals trained to deliver chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic doctors make gentle adjustments to an affected joint with either their hands or using a tool such as an Activator. These chiropractic adjustments are intended to clear any joint restrictions, fibrous adhesions, inflammation, spinal nerve irritation, or bulging discs. Adjustments are quick and painless and are performed as such to help reset the nervous system, initiate healing, and ultimately, restore optimal health and function.
