ABOUT CHIROPRACTIC

Daniel David Palmer, better known as D.D., is the founding father of chiropractic and theorized the body had an ample supply of natural healing power transmitted through the nervous system. If a single organ was "sick" it must not be receiving its normal nerve supply. This led to the premise of spinal subluxation, and from there to a procedure for manipulating or adjusting the spine. D.D. performed his first adjustments in 1895, relieving one man of deafness and another of heart trouble.

Arrangements were made to train others in the application of the chiropractic principle. The Palmer School and Cure was founded in 1897 and was later incorporated under the laws of Iowa. The school later became the Palmer School of Chiropractic. Since the time of D.D.’s revelations about the intimate relationships of the human body and chiropractic, much research has been done to prove the efficacy and validity of this healthcare system.

The human body is a complex structure, with many complicated systems, especially the nervous, muscular and skeletal systems. These three systems, commonly called the neuromusculoskeletal system, have an intimate working relationship. It is our job as chiropractors to make sure that these three systems are properly communicating with each other so your body is functioning at its highest possible level. This is achieved through the power of the adjustment. The truth of the matter is—the force that made the body is capable of healing the body—and all that is needed is a little "push" to get the ball rolling. We provide that "push."
