“Chiropractic is a system of complementary medicine based on the diagnosis and manipulative treatment of misalignments of the joints, especially those of the spinal column, which are held to cause other disorders by affecting the nerves, muscles, and organs.” David Daniel Palmer, the founder of chiropractic, gave the first chiropractic adjustment in 1895, relieving a man of deafness. Doctors of Chiropractic aim to heal the human body naturally for many different ailments. A Doctor of Chiropractic is highly skilled, trained, and educated to perform spinal manipulation to treat a misalignment. The big question about this field, is it an effective alternative choice for health care? Chiropractic care makes way to heal the human body in the most natural way, it allows a patient to live a healthy and high functioning life without medication; and the chiropractic adjustment allows the body to resist and fight against infection and diseases.
Chiropractic is a few different things a science, philosophy, an art. It is based on the platform that natural health and wellness is the human body’s true nature, and that having your body in a good state of wellness is what comes to the body naturally. The make up if the human body was designed to fight and heal the body all by itself. A chiropractors main goal is to ensure that the human body’s natural every day health processes are able to function without any interference in the nervous system due to misaligned vertebrae. Chiropractors aim to treat patient’s physical problems and the causes to those rather than just the symptoms that they patient may be having. If the human body has a normal functioning spine and healthy nervous system, the human body would be able to heal itself naturally. As a science, chiropractors have an understanding of the relationship that the spine and nervous system have with one another and how it controls how it has an effect on how the body maintains good health.

“Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on the relationship between the body's structure; mainly the spine, and its functioning. “ Chiropractors learn that the powerhouse of the body is the nervous system. When an organ or body part isn’t functioning properly that means there is a ‘subluxation’ causing the miscommunication to that organ or body part. “A subluxation is when one or more of the bones of your spine (vertebrae) move out of position and create pressure on, or irritate spinal nerves. Spinal nerves are the nerves that come out from between each of the bones in your spine. This pressure or irritation on the nerves then causes those nerves to malfunction and interfere with the signals traveling over those nerves.” A chiropractor stands by the table and uses their body and special equipment to adjust the misaligned (subluxated) bones of the spine. Many chiropractors may also use many different therapeutic methods such as, heat, ice, electrical muscle stimulation, massage therapy, decompression, and traction. They may prescribe exercises to correct health problems, especially those that involve the skeletal and nervous systems. Doctors of Chiropractic work to improve how the nervous system functions by performing regular chiropractic adjustments to help eliminate any type of interference that could be causing poor health. The human body’s organs, cells, and tissues are designed to function properly to resist and fight infection and disease without medication when the nervous system is functioning normally.
