Chiropractic today

The origin of Chiropractic dates back to 1895 ,Davenport Iowa USA. The narrative recounts a setting of an intellectual therapist ,David Palmer, adjusting the spine of a janitor causing subsequent increased hearing. David Palmer postulated that the condition of the vertebral column influenced the body’s ability to function correctly. Chiropractic came into existence.

Remember, in 1895, no antibiotics existed (Penicillin was not discovered till 1928). Imaging technology also initiated in 1895 with the first X-ray machine (knowledge of the deadly radiation came later). Some vaccines had been trailed and the germ theory monopolized as the acceptable medical orientation; excluding the terrain theory from medical teaching institutions. The birth of Chiropractic in 1895 gave credence to the terrain theory through its strong philosophy relative to the self-organizational properties of the living organism but also gave respect to the germ theory due to its acquired accomplishments.

For a mostly accurate description of the history of Chiropractic refer here. The Italian version lacks information, making the site referenced as a better choice.

Through time, Chiropractic in the USA endured the scrutiny of the Medical community. Now in most countries, Medical and Chiropractic professionals collaborate to ensure the best for their clients and their community. Chiropractic Institutions (staffed with certified Doctors, Chemists, Neurologists, Medical-Imaging roentgenology specialists, Anatomists, Chiropractors etc..) thrive in most well-developed countries.
World wide, Chiropractors contribute to the health of many communities. Its benefits are used by athletes, Olympic organizations, equestrian organizations, business companies, mothers, senior citizens and adults in general. These results have made Chiropractic a reputable form of primary care providers.

Chiropractic education envelopes many topics and maintains a rigorous educational program. Comparing Medical to Chiropractic curriculums, the professions prove comparable but distinct. On the basis of education, there exists no reason to doubt the preparation of a Chiropractor.

At this office, Chiropractic is the science, philosophy and art of managing the spine and reducing bio-mechanical blocks and neurologic physiological deficiencies to allow the natural capabilities of the body to heal from within. Symptoms are a result of the accumulation of such deficiencies. Chiropractic evolves with scientific advances and many Chiropractic techniques modify accordingly. In addition to the classic structural methods, we at Adjust Your Life principally apply two contemporary low force techniques subsequently summarized.

What kind of conditions does it treat?

A principled Chiropractor does not treat conditions.
You may ask yourself why would I visit a Chiropractor if not to treat a problem? If you can fantom the idea that the body has self-organizational properties. That the body uses the nervous system as the highway of communication to manage and respond to stimulus. In simple terms, if the logistics of this communication is not appropiate then the person becomes more vulnerable to injury and other disturbances. Even a direct trauma depends on the communication of all systems to heal efficiently and quickly. If you understand that. You understand the utility of Chiropractic’s ability to increase and advance this communication; assisting in any presenting condition. To name a few:

  • Spine pain
  • Shoulder/Hip Pain
  • Arm/Leg Pain
  • Disc herniation
  • Sciatica
  • Whiplash
  • Low back pain
  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Neurological Degenerative conditions
  • Gait disturbances
  • Concussion Rehab
  • Childhood developmental problems
  • Cognitive difficulties

But again, my objective is not treat your symptoms. Instead, helping your body to change tension patterns will cause positive changes in your presenting complaint. Increasing your natural breathing will increase oxygenation. Permitting a clearer representation of proprioceptive information will permit your muscles to respond more accurately. Such endeavors may improve or eliminate your chief complaint. This is my objective.

Infants, Kids and Adolescents

Senior citizens

Falls remain the greatest cause of mortality within this age category. As we age, some of our natural protective faculties diminish in speed. Communication between body parts slow down and become warped. This situation precludes senior citizens to falls and injuries. At our office, we monitor and apply low force methods to improve and balance your instability. The winner is that person who can age gracefully and for the most amount of time remain on this planet. Being involved with Chiropractic for over thirty-five years I am proud to represent this profession and the long term effects it produces. I believe I can say with certainty that Chiropractic, if only on a clinical assessment, has assisted people live long healthy lives.

Medicine is interested in the problem in the person. Chiropractic is interested in the person with the problem.
