In 1895, Daniel David Palmer founded the modern profession of chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Palmer was a self-taught healer and a student of healing philosophies of the day. He observed that the body has a natural healing ability that he believed was controlled by the nervous system. He also believed that subluxations, or misalignments of the spine (a concept that had already existed in the bonesetter and osteopathic traditions), interrupt or interfere with this “nerve flow.” Palmer suggested that if an organ does not receive its normal supply of impulses from the nerves, it can become diseased. This line of thinking led him to develop a procedure to “adjust” the vertebrae, the bones of the spinal column, with the goal of correcting subluxations.

What Is Chiropractic Therapy?  Chiropractic is a form of health care that focuses on the relationship between the body’s structure, primarily of the spine, and function.  Chiropractic is most often used to treat musculoskeletal conditions, problems with the  muscles, joints, bones and connective tissues (such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons).

Doctors of chiropractic, who are also called chiropractors or chiropractic physicians, use a type of hands-on therapy called manipulation (or adjustment) as their core clinical procedure. Manipulation is passive joint movement beyond the normal range of motion. The term adjustment is preferred in chiropractic.  The basic concepts of chiropractic can be described as:

  • the body has a powerful self-healing ability
  • the body’s structure (primarily that of the spine) and its function are closely related, and this relationship affects health
  • chiropractic therapy is given with the goals of normalizing this relationship between structure and function and assisting the body as it heals

So, the next time you feel a twinge or a deep ache in your joints, consider the alternative world of healing in Chiropractic therapy.
