How Can Chiropractic Care Help You?
Many people dismiss Chiropractic as being something only for neck and back pain, but it can be beneficial for so much more. Chiropractic can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines, tension headaches, shoulder and elbow problems, carpal tunnel, neck and back pain, muscle/ligament strains/sprains, and much more.
The History of Chiropractic Care
The word “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” The first Chiropractic adjustment was given in 1895 by Daniel David Palmer (Father of Chiropractic) on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved following the adjustment.
D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with a variety of musculoskeletal and other ailments. Millions of people continue to benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.
What Kind of Training Does a Chiropractor Have?
Chiropractic doctors go through a minimum of four years of schooling at a chiropractic college, generally preceded by an undergraduate degree in the basic sciences or several years of experience in a prior relevant health care field.
Students of chiropractic care must spend a minimum of at least 4,200 hours with their teacher, and a minimum of 1,000 hours of fully supervised clinical training with an instructor as they learn the appropriate diagnosis and treatment techniques to help heal your body and restore it to its natural, fully functioning state.
