Chiropractic Care at Chiropractic First

By definition of the word, chiropractic is done by hand. The history of chiropractic dates back to 1895 when D.D. Palmer applied a thrust to Harvey Lillard’s neck. A janitor, Mr. Lillard had been deaf since an accident 17 years before. D.D. Palmer felt a lump in the man’s neck and thought he’d see about fixing it. Though he originally thought he’d cured deafness, as he continued to adjust people, other ailments improved. Chiropractic was born through experience.

How We Create Change in Your Body

Today, we know that what D.D. Palmer did was make a change to Harvey Lillard’s nervous system. Your brain and nervous system control everything in your body. Your spine protects the relay between the brain and every other part: the spinal cord. If your spine isn’t working right, the relay that carries the messages to the body can’t get through. We make specific corrections with the chiropractic adjustment to fix spinal misalignments, or vertebral subluxations.

When an adjustment is made, it restores the motion of a joint. When the joint is in alignment, it no longer puts pressure on your nerves so that your body can work at 100% again. If you’re not moving as well as you could be, you’re not expressing the best of health.
