Why Chiropractic

The Story of Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a healing discipline firmly grounded in science. Although its main focus is the relationship between the skeleton (particularly the spine) and the nervous system that runs through it, chiropractic is concerned with the care of the entire body. Chiropractors use various diagnostic methods including orthopedic exams, manual touch, and  diagnostic imaging to understand the nature of the pain and dysfunction impairing optimum health and wellness.

‚Äč

The word chiropractic comes from a combination of the Greek words “chiro” and “praktikis”, meaning “done by hand”.  Treatment by hand was an accepted form of therapy in ancient Greece. Hippocrates, who is regarded as the founder of medical inquiry, made the first recorded references to spinal manipulation.
