"Chiropractic" comes from the Greek word Chiropraktikos, meaning "effective treatment by hand".
It addresses diseases not by the use of drugs, but by locating and adjusting a musculoskeletal area of the body which is functioning improperly.
Chiropractic is based on the concept that dysfunction in the spine can alter the function of the nervous system and create pain and illness.
Over 100 years ago, D.D. Palmer (the Founder of chiropractic and Palmer College of Chiropractic) had a "big idea" – the idea that good health can be sustained naturally, without drugs or surgery, through chiropractic care.
Today, chiropractic is the second largest licensed health care profession.
Chiropractors use natural, drugless, non-surgical health care and rely on the body’s ability to heal itself.
Although Chiropractors assist people that have been in accidents or suffered injuries, chiropractic specializes in preventative healthcare, and encourages people to be proactive about their health to prevent future injury or illness.
