History of Chiropractic Care
According to many historians and the American Chiropractic Association, the origins of chiropractic care can be traced all the way back to the beginning of recorded time. Ancient writings from China and Greece written in 2700 B.C. and 1500 B.C. mention spinal manipulation and the maneuvering of the lower extremities to ease low back pain. Greek physician, Hippocrates (460 to 357 B.C.) also published texts detailing the importance of chiropractic care. In one of his writings he declares, “Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases.”
The primary belief is in natural and conservative methods of health care. Doctors of Chiropractic have a deep respect for the human body’s ability to heal itself without the use of surgery or medication. Chiropractors devote careful attention to the biomechanics, structure and function of the spine, its effects on the musculoskeletal and neurological systems, and the role played by the proper function of these systems in the preservation and restoration of health. A Doctor of Chiropractic is one who is involved in the treatment and prevention of disease, as well as the promotion of public health, and a wellness approach to patient healthcare.
With nearly two decades of experience, I can tell you firsthand, that Chiropractic Works. My patients have been amazing! As a healer, I am overwhelmed when I witness personal growth, success, and the pain-free lifestyle that so many of my family, friends and clients have acquired. Many people have reclaimed their life by
rejecting the “status quo” and adopting a lifestyle that includes total body
awareness. This “awareness” allows for healing within ~ through mental preparedness, diet, exercise, and chiropractic care.
