I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant lower back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. So I decided to go to a chiropractor before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pains are gone and I am living my life to the fullest and pain free.

The word chiropractic is derived from Greek and means “ To Perform With The Hands”. Paintings from ancient Egypt and Greece have shown spinal manipulation was used thousand of years ago. However, it wasn't until 1895 when D D Palmer in the U.S established the science, art, and philosophy of Chiropractic.

Chiropractic is a health care discipline, which emphasizes the inherent recuperation power of the body to heal itself without drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine and nervous system and how the relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.

Chiropractors treat Subluxations.  Subluxations are a misalignment of the spinal joints which cause irritation to the nervous system.  The nervous system controls and coordinates all functions on the body.  If there is irritation to that system, there will be irritation to certain organ functions resulting in symptoms like neck pain, headaches, high blood pressure, infertility, and so on.  Chiropractors do not treat those symptoms, they treat the subluxations.  No other profession is trained in the detection and correction of Subluxations.
