Chiropractic translated means “with the hand” and was established in1895 by D.D. Palmer in Davenport Iowa. It is the 2nd largest healthcare delivery system in the World with over 65,000 chiropractors in the US alone. We are Licensed in all 50 states and in most countries of the world.
Chiropractic adjustments remove restrictions from the body and nervous system to help it function more optimally thereby restoring homeostasis and balance to the person or animal (chiropractic is effective on other animals). Benefits: removes interferences such as nerve tension, muscle spasm, loss of motion, inflammation and pain. Promotes healthy function and healing/wellness.
Chiropractors are the only doctors specialized in the treatment of the neuromusculoskeletal system using conservative methods and without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractors are also trained in nutrition. Chiropractic is safe and effective. Malpractice insurance for chiropractors is about $2500/year because the risk factor is very low. Ask any MD, especially a surgeon what s/he pays for insurance!
Early detection and prevention can make correction easier – “if your tires are wearing unevenly, they may be under or over inflated”. It’s best to check the tires before any long trip. Chiropractors are trained to observe and diagnose neurological, muscular and skeletal problems before they become problems in our lives.
Prevention and correction are similar. Most people have the oil in their engines changed before they start seeing blue smoke coming out of the tail pipe. Why not have your body tuned up and checked periodically, before a problem gets worse or out of control. Before the problem starts is even better!
If you wear out your car, you can get another one, if you wear out your body, how will that affect your life?
