Chiropractic was founded by D.D. Palmer when he performed the first chiropractic adjustment on Harvey Lillard on September 18, 1895 .

The main method chiropractors use to treat their patients is by performing specific adjustments to the specific vertebrae that is effecting the patients condition. In addition they do patient education concerning exercises and proper body mechanics.

Chiropractics is a conservative form of health care that emphasizes the relationship between the musculoskeletal system (the spine and muscles) and the nervous system. It is non- invasive and drug free . Chiropractic is based on the principle that the human body is self-regulating and self healing.

The body is controlled by your nervous system which delivers and receives messages from the brain. These messages are sent to every organ and tissue in the body.

When you have a vertebral subluxation, a misalignment, this irritates the nerves and surrounding tissue thus compromising the proper functioning of various systems that the nervous sytstm regulates.

When the chiropractor adjusts your spine, this corrects the misalignments which improves how the body functions . If subluxations are treated at onset of the problem ,it will reduce the likelihood of further injury. If left untreated the problem could lead to further injury and degenerative disorders.

The doctor performs an examination to determine the cause of your problem and develop a plan of treatment. Chiropractic is interested in taking care of the cause of the problem , not just ridding you of your symptoms.
