What is Chiropractic?
The journey of chiropractic medicine began in 1895 when Daniel David Palmer saw a deaf worker without his shirt on and noticed a disc in his spine was out of place. He asked what happened and the man said he felt a pop in his back and his hearing was gone. Palmer got him to lay on the floor and did an adjustment. The next day the man reported being able to hear again and chiropractic medicine was born.
What is the science behind Chiropractic Medicine?
Chiropractic medicine has come a long way from Daniel David Palmer's grocery store. Chiropractic Medicine is founded on the principle that the body is in large part a self-healing organism. Through adjustments, the body is returned to its proper alignment allowing all of the parts to communicate optimally and the body to heal itself.
Does chiropractic medicine replace traditional medicine.
We believe our patients are best served when chiropractic services are used in conjunction with traditional medicine.
How does this work?
It all begins with an assessment and x rays. During the assessment, you will meet with the doctor and share your health problems and concerns. You and the doctor will then develop a treatment plan that will begin your journey to wellness.
Can you tell me how many treatments I will need?
Regretfully, the human body does not come with a crystal ball. The length of your treatment plan is determined by how your body responds. Let's explain it like this, your body has what it sees as "normal", if your spine has been out of alignment for 10 years, then your body may think that the misalignment is "normal", it may take several adjustments to allow convince your body there is a new normal.
