What is a chiropractor?

A chiropractor is a health care provider whose primary focus is to restore and maintain optimal performances of the human body.

What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care focuses on removing interference to the spine and its enclosed spinal cord and nerves to optimize the nervous system functions. Chiropractic care is known for relieving pain in the spine, neck, and back when in fact these reliefs are just “side effects” of your body being able to function and perform better with a un-interfered nervous system.

Are chiropractors doctors?

Chiropractors are licensed doctors in the states of their practices. Chiropractors are also strictly regulated by their state agencies and the Chiropractic Board of Examiners. In short, chiropractors are doctors with extensive education and follow strict regulations.

What is the history of chiropractic care?

The word ‘chiropractic’ comes from the Greek words cheir (meaning ‘hand’) and praktos (meaning ‘done’), i.e. Done by Hand. The name was chosen by the developer of chiropractic, Daniel David Palmer.  A prolific reader of all things scientific, DD Palmer realized that although various forms of manipulation had been used for hundreds if not thousands of years, no one had developed a philosophical or scientific rationale to explain their effects. Palmer’s major contribution to the health field was, therefore, the codification of the philosophy, art, and science of chiropractic which was based on his extensive study of anatomy and physiology.

Palmer performed the initial chiropractic adjustment in September 1895. Palmer examined a janitor who had become deaf 17 years prior after he felt something “give” in his back. Palmer examined the area and gave a crude “adjustment” to what was felt to be a misplaced vertebra in the upper back. The janitor then observed that his hearing improved.

From that first adjustment, DD Palmer continued to develop chiropractic and in 1897 established the Palmer School of Cure, now known as the Palmer College of Chiropractic, in Davenport, Iowa, where it remains today. Following the first adjustment, many people became interested in Palmer’s new science and healing art. Among his early students were Palmer’s son, Bartlett Joshua (BJ), as well as members of the older healing arts of medicine and osteopathy. The first state law licensing chiropractors was passed in 1913, and by 1931, 39 states had given chiropractors legal recognition.

Today, there are more than 70,000 active chiropractic licenses in the United States. All 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands officially recognize chiropractic as a health care profession. Many other countries also recognize and regulate chiropractic, including Canada, Mexico, Great Britain, Australia, Japan and Switzerland.

Are chiropractors safe?

Chiropractic is safe for people of all ages. Our youngest patient is 3 days old, and our oldest patient is 98 years old.

Are there chiropractic adjustment side effects?

Side effects of chiropractic adjustments are: improved mobility, improved energy, and immune functions and feeling better overall.

How many chiropractic sessions do you need?

Care plans are based on the individual’s exam findings, history of injuries, age, and current level of health. Some patients require intensive care for the first 8 to 12 weeks while others come in less frequently for their wellness care.

Do chiropractic adjustments hurt?

98% at times, chiropractic adjustments are painless and while enjoyable. Many of our patients “miss” the adjustments between their visits. The other 2% could be uncomfortable but not due to the adjustments themselves instead it is the severity of the conditions the patients have.

Are chiropractic adjustments safe?

Chiropractic adjustments are safe! We have adjusted all of our own children since birth. If the adjustments are safe for our kids, they are safe for everyone.

Why do adjustments sometimes make a popping sound?

Sometimes the adjustments create popping noise. These noises are pressures along your spine being released by the adjustments.

Are all patients adjusted the same way?

No, each patient is evaluated and adjusted differently. Since we primarily focus on the 24 vertebrae of the spine, we tend to spend most of the time on your spine. But each specific adjustment serves a different purpose to stimulate a specific nerve to start the healing process.

Will I be required to remove my clothing at my appointment?

No, you will not have to remove your clothing during the adjustments.
