|About What Is Chiropractic Common Conditions|
Chiropractors are the 3rd largest group of health professionals who have primary contact with their patients, and their number is expected to double by the year 2010. Why is this? Because chiropractic is safe, non-invasive, natural, preventative health care that searches out what is causing a patient problems and fixes that. An example would be...if you have a headache take aspirin right? Why not find out what is causing the headaches and correct that. Taking an aspirin is like turning off the fire alarm in a burning house...
Your brain controls your entire body and relays all information down the spinal cord. In between each bone in the spine is a hole that a nerve feeds through and connects to every organ and cell of the body. When your spine is out of place your nerves may not be working properly. Why not at least get checked today to have a healthier tomorrow? Most people get their teeth checked for cavities and don't have their spines checked for misalignments.
Warning: Don't use pain as an indicator for care... First comes misalignment, then malfunction, next disease, and last is pain...
The principle of chiropractic was discovered September 18, 1895 by Dr. Daniel Palmer in Davenport, Iowa. On that day, Palmer was in his office carrying on a shouted conversation with the deaf janitor in the building, Harvey Lillard. Lillard was explaining in shouts to Palmer that, about 17 years earlier, while working in a cramped, stooped position, something ďpoppedĒ in his back. Since that time, his hearing had become progressively worse.
Dr. Palmer, a curious, intelligent man, examined Lillardís back and found a painful, misaligned vertebra at the spot where Lillard had described feeling the pain. He suspected a connection between this misaligned vertebra and Lillardís impaired hearing. He reasoned that is something had gone wrong in his back and had caused deafness, the correction of the misaligned vertebra should bring back Lillardís hearing.
Using his hands, Palmer repositioned the vertebra with a gentle thrust to Lillardís back. Lillardís hearing improved immediately. During the next few days, Palmer continued the treatments on Lillardís spine. Within a week, Lillard was able to hear as well as anybody and was telling anybody who would listen about Dr. Palmerís hand treatements.
Dr. Palmerís fame quickly spread as he proved that the hand treatments were effective in all sorts of disease disorders and dysfunctions. He became a world-renowned specialist in the spine and nerve system.
