HOW CAN CHIROPRACTIC CARE HELP YOU?

THE HISTORY OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Chiropractic care actually got its start in a story that tells of just how much of an impact spinal health can have on a person’s life. Daniel David Palmer performed the first chiropractic adjustment in history in 1895. His patient was a janitor with a hearing problem. After the non-invasive spinal adjustment, the janitor, named Harvey Lillard, found that his hearing had improved.
Since this first event, chiropractic care has come a long way. Today, chiropractors help patients find real solutions for migraines, vertigo, carpal tunnel syndrome, neck pain, muscle strains, injuries from work or accidents, and a wide assortment of physical ailments.
WHAT KIND OF TRAINING DOES A CHIROPRACTOR HAVE?
Did you know that chiropractors go to a college just for chiropractic care? For four years (at least) chiropractic doctors study with their teachers for over 4,000 hours. This is in addition to over a thousand hours of supervised clinical training. This experience is important to become educated on how the body works. After this experience, a chiropractor is able to examine a patient, take down their medical history, perform needed tests, and offer a knowledgeable diagnosis on the problem.
