What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a natural, drug-free healthcare profession founded in 1895 by D.D. Palmer. Its primary focus is on the structure and motion of the spine and its relationship to the function of the nervous system.

Chiropractic was founded on the principle that your body is intelligent and thus self-developing, self-regulating, and self-healing. You will always move towards a state of health provided there is no interference to the intelligent design (AKA innate intelligence) of the body. This intelligence of the body is primarily expressed through the nervous system, the master communication system. The motion and alignment of your spine are intimately related to the health of your nervous system.

Chiropractors primarily focus on maximizing nervous system integrity through gentle, specific adjustments of the spine (like tuning a piano) to restore and maintain health.
