Over a period of years DD Palmer observed the effects of chiropractic adjustments, not only in reducing symptoms, but having a positive effect on a variety of health concerns. He hypothesized that chiropractic was not a cure for all disease, but a way of allowing the body to function better by removing nerve interference cause by misalignments in the spine.
As a chiropractor I am reminded daily of the privilege I have in terms of helping people, not only in helping them get out of pain, but improving the quality of health and life in general. It is great to help educate my patients that health is not the absence of disease but much, much more.
Chiropractic is unique in that we help facilitate the body’s natural ability to heal itself, without the use of drugs or surgery.
