Brief history pin he establishment of chiropractic care.

•Chiropractic care wasn’t officially developed until the late 1800s by Dr. Daniel David Palmer. A patient was complaining of hearing loss after a weird pop in his back. Dr. Palmer had the patient lay face down and proceeded with the first ever adjustment. The next day, the patient could hear again. Dr. Palmer opened up the first chiropractic school two years later.

•As the saying goes, the rest is history.

Why you should get adjusted even if your not in pain.

We here questions like this all the time; if I’m not in pain why should I have to go to the chiropractor?

Isn’t a chiropractor just for your back? They can’t help with leg/arm/head pains right?

WRONG.

The spine is made up of 24 individual working and movable bones. At each entry of these bones there are nerve ending that send impulses or pain receptors to different parts of the body. If one these 24 parts are not in correct positioning then the body sends out pain responses to the nerves or muscle groups that are associated with each section. So inherently, it’s all connected.

EXAMPLE

IF YOU HAVE A LOOSE BRICK IN A WALL, THE MORTAR AROUND ALL THE OTHER BRICKS SLOWLY STARTS TO CHIP AWAY CAUSING MORE SYSTEMIC PROBLEMS TO ARISE WITH THE WALL.

Chiropractors are here to help you strengthen that wall; your Spine. Chiropractic care allows gentle movement within the spinal column to restore your wall back to health.

But let’s think of regular maintenance adjustments-

When you think of what we can do in time of distress, think of what would happen if you routinely visited the chiropractor before issues arise.

Routine check ups with a chiropractor can help ensure the spine is moving effectively to prevent issues such as arthritis; bone spurs, pinched nerves, sciatica etc.

how often you need to check up with the chiropractor is different for everyone but everyone can benefit from routinely visiting your favorite chiropractor.

Let your body do the healing.

One reason many patients favor chiropractic therapy is that it is natural and noninvasive, avoiding surgery and pills. The basic philosophy of doctors in this field is simple: by removing impingements to the communication system that sends messages to and from the brain, health is improved. Through spinal manipulation, chiropractors allow your body to access its own innate power to heal itself – optimizing the alignment within your body rather than introducing external chemicals

Heavy bags could be a pain culprit.

Carrying around a heavy purse or laptop messenger style bag everyday? You could be really messing up that shoulder and alignment. If you’re experiencing migraines, aches and pains through out your back and shoulders your bag could be the culprit. Instead try carrying a backpack that is minimal and is no more than 5-10 percent of your body weight.

Beware of basic flip flops!

Boy it’s a hot one today! While you are trying to escape the heat and stay cool, like wearing those flip flops, make sure your not doing more harm than good! 

Your feet are your biggest support systems. Make sure to choose flip flops that have a good arch support. Stay away from one size fits all!
