What is it?
Chiropractic’s roots can be traced back to writings from China and Greece, 2700 B.C. and 1500 B.C respectively. However, chiropractic in the U.S. did not gain momentum until 1895 when D. D. Palmer, the “father of chiropractic” founded the profession and then the first school in Davenport, Iowa. Since then, chiropractic has spread throughout the United States and overseas.
The meaning of the word “chiropractic” means “by hand,” and this word was formed because chiropractors perform adjustments to return bones that have moved out of their optimal structural position back into place using their hands, rather than drugs or surgery. When the bones are realigned, this allows the body to heal itself to alleviate a variety of conditions, like pain and numbness and tingling.
Chiropractic is typically associated with “headache, neck pain, and back pain” relief, but the reality is that chiropractic can do so much more than just relieve pain – it can realign your spine to allow the brain to send unimpeded nerve impulses down the spinal cord, out through the nerves to the rest of your body. In other words, it helps restore optimal functionality to your central nervous system. Because your nervous system controls your whole body – organs, muscles, cognitive thought – restoring the proper functioning to it through chiropractic care can help with many neuromusculoskeletal problems, ranging from asthma to frozen shoulder to numbness and tingling.
