What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic was founded by D.D. Palmer and established in 1895 as a healthcare system in the United States. Chiropractic is a science, art and philosophy. The science is based on the physiological fact that our bodies perform better and are healthier when there is no neurological interference. The art is in the skills of each doctor and the technique they choose to use to treat the patient and remove spinal nerve interference. The philosophy is rooted in the understanding that each of our bodies has the inborn ability to heal, control and regulate itself.

Chiropractic is about freeing nervous system interference in the spine, which then allows the body to function at its optimum. This allows communication from the brain to all organs and areas of the body to flow properly. Many life-changing benefits can arise from this rather simple correction and maintenance, which is why chiropractic is the third largest health care profession in the nation. When your body is functioning the way it was designed to, without interference from within, many areas of health will improve.
