WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?
In 1895, Daniel David Palmer delivered the first chiropractic adjustment to a janitor named Harvey Lillard. Harvey was deaf and after DD Palmer manually adjusted his neck, his hearing was restored. From this the chiropractic profession was born.
To better understand the wonders of chiropractic, we need to take a closer look and appreciate the details, which include the brain and the nervous system, and how they work together.
Our central nervous system (CNS) consists of the brain and spinal cord, so all the nerves inside the skull and spine. These nerves allow us to see, smell, breathe, hear, taste, move, talk, walk so it’s important that these nerves are working at their full potential.
When there is dysfunctional movement of a joint, or misalignment, in the spine, it can affect the normal function of these nerve cells, interfering with the nervous system.
Chiropractors aim to restore normal bodily function and spinal joint movement through spinal adjustments, amongst other techniques, so the brain and nervous system can work at their optimal potential, in order for the body to function in complete harmony.
“Chiropractic is a hard nut to crack. It has developed a thick shell from years of defending itself. But look beyond the politics of health care, and you will discover that chiropractic is full of goodness and love for humanity. It holds within it the potential to dramatically improve people’s health and well-being, if only it is allowed the conditions to grow…”
