What is Chiropractic?
The origination of the term chiropractic is derived from Greek, which defines its meaning as done by hand. Chiropractic care has been used to address pain and health issues dating back to ancient Egypt, though the organized practice of chiropractic has been documented as having arrived in the United States in the late 19th century. It is widely regarded as a natural approach to preventative and health maintenance care as well as a conservative approach to help mitigate pain and issues caused by a great number of illnesses and disease.
Chiropractic is viewed as a natural healthcare method because neither drugs nor surgical procedures are used; rather it is a health practice which is applied through manual manipulation of the spine to release the spinal structure of misalignments, encouraging the body to perform as it is intended and aid the body in self-healing. These misalignments, referred to as subluxations, can place pressure on and irritate the nerves which make up your spine, and many seek relief from the pain caused by this pressure when visiting a doctor of chiropractic for an initial visit. In time, patients can experience an overall improvement in their health making it clear that chiropractic care is an integral part of a routine wellness plan.
