The History of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care has been around for centuries, but it has just been in the last 100 years or so that it has taken the world by storm by introducing a non-invasive, scientifically-proven, holistic, effective approach to healthcare. Since chiropractic began, it has been regularly advancing in methodology and continues to do so today. Here at At Last Chiropractic, we are excited to educate you about the history of chiropractic and all the benefits it can offer to our Lithia community.
A Brief History of Chiropractic Care
The first individual to define a vertebral subluxation (or misalignment) was Dr. D.D. Palmer. He was also the first to diagnose an individual with a vertebral subluxation and he gave the first chiropractic adjustment in 1895. Dr. Palmer recognized the significant pressure on the nerves from the spinal misalignment, and he noticed an effect on the rest of the body’s functions from that nerve pressure. His son and daughter-in-law continued pursuing chiropractic over several more decades, which resulted in the founding of The Palmer School of Chiropractic, which has continued to increase research on the science of chiropractic and the overall whole-body and holistic approach to healthcare.
How Chiropractic Services Have Advanced
Since the inception of Palmer School of Chiropractic, additional chiropractic colleges have been founded all across the globe. These schools teach all the latest advancements in chiropractic, including the newest technology to identify subluxations and the innovative techniques that are used to correct them. Chiropractic has grown in effectiveness as advancements have been made and more research has been done, and countless people have seen first-hand the positive effects chiropractic has on the body.
