Chiropractors are experienced in non-invasive techniques that alleviate nerve pressure from acute injuries and chronic pain. This can resolve a wide variety of health problems, like chronic back pain, headaches, and pains in the arms and legs. A chiropractic treatment plan can provide immediate relief, as well as a long term solution to prevent recurring problems.
HOW CAN CHIROPRACTIC CARE HELP YOU?
Chiropractors see patients with a slight twinge in their neck and others who have lost their full range of mobility. Wherever you are in your health journey, they will evaluate your situation and create a personalized plan that works for you.
The History of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care actually got its start in a story that tells of just how much of an impact spinal health can have on a person’s life. Daniel David Palmer performed the first chiropractic adjustment in history in 1895. His patient was a janitor with a hearing problem. After the non-invasive spinal adjustment, the janitor, named Harvey Lillard, found that his hearing had improved.
Since this first event, chiropractic care has come a long way. Today, chiropractors help patients find real solutions for migraines, vertigo, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, neck pain, muscle strains, injuries from work or accidents, and a wide assortment of physical ailments.
WHAT KIND OF TRAINING DOES A CHIROPRACTOR HAVE?
Did you know that chiropractors go to a college just for chiropractic care? For four years (at least) chiropractic doctors study with their teachers for over 4,000 hours. This is in addition to over a thousand hours of supervised clinical training.
This experience is important to become educated on how the body works. After this experience, a chiropractor is able to examine a patient, take down their medical history, perform needed tests, and offer a knowledgeable diagnosis on the problem.
While most people suffering health concerns will turn to the internet to self-diagnose an issue today, there’s no replacement for years of experience and testing to find the true source of a health concern.
