What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic comes from the Ancient Greek words ‘kheir’ and ‘praktikos’, loosely translated ‘to do by hand’.

Chiropractic is a recognised health care discipline which emphasises the inherent, recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.

The practice of chiropractic is based upon the scientific fact that your nervous system runs and controls every cell, tissue, organ, system and function of your body.

Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.

Subluxations or misalignments of anatomical structures (cranium, vertebra and pelvic bones) and the nervous system, can cause malfunction of the nerves and organs and may create sickness and disease. Extremities have a fundamental effect on spinal structures and nervous system and can therefore, also be a cause of or contribute to spinal subluxations.

Modern chiropractic was first discovered in 1895 by a natural healer, Dr Daniel D. Palmer.

Dr Palmer’s janitor, Harvey Lillard, had been deaf for 17 years. When Dr Palmer examined Harvey’s neck and upper back, he found what we now know as a subluxation. Dr Palmer adjusted Harvey’s subluxation and his hearing returned shortly thereafter.
