THE HISTORY OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE
The word “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer. In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.
D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.
Chiropractic doctors go through a minimum of four years of schooling at a chiropractic college, generally preceded by an undergraduate degree in the basic sciences or several years of experience in a prior relevant health care field.
Students of chiropractic care must spend a minimum of at least 4,200 hours with their teacher, and a minimum of 1,000 hours of fully supervised clinical training with an instructor as they learn the appropriate diagnosis and treatment techniques to help heal your body and restore it to its natural, fully functioning state.
We focus on restoring the proper “ingredients” for health. Movement is hugely important to both health and performance, this is why you often hear sitting is the new smoking. Gross movement can often be improved with self-care, but specific small movement issues don’t respond the same way. Our Chiropractors focus on what you can’t do for yourself, to help you do what you can on your own, better. Nutrition is also huge; even some simple changes can go a long way to restoring health and function. Exercise is another pillar that helps to stabilize and maintain any movement improvements we can make. Giving your body what it needs to be healthy is a simple and effective way to improve.
We have a close group of health practitioners that work together as a team to compliment your existing healthcare team. We want your family physician, physiotherapist, or whoever else you have on your team to be able to do what they do best.
Movement is life. Our chiropractors focus on restoring proper movement and supporting that movement with, at a minimum, exercise and nutrition. A joint/muscle, or whole body that is moving better and getting better nutrition is better than one that isn’t. We have great results with all kinds of chronic sports injuries, pain syndromes, other health issues and we have great results with people who don’t have any “problems” but who want to prevent movement issues or perform and recover better. There is a difference between moving and moving well.
