What is Chiropractic?

The term “chiropractic,” meaning “done by hand,” was first coined by D.D. Palmer in 1895.  Since then, chiropractic has been known to be an alternative form of healthcare that focuses on the skeletal system, the muscles of the body, and their impact on the nervous system.  Chiropractors know that by making adjustments to the joints of the body, they are able to restore motion to hypomobile segments, reduce inhibition of the nervous system, and have a vast impact on overall health and quality of life.  Chiropractors do not prescribe drugs or perform surgery but rather facilitate the body’s natural healing ability by allowing it to move and function the way nature designed it to.
