Chiropractic Care at Chiropractic First

Chiropractic’s History & Global Impact

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 try to fix it. Though Palmer originally thought he’d cured deafness, as he continued to adjust people, other ailments improved. Chiropractic was born through experience.

Now, over a century later, millions of people around the globe have experienced the transformative effects of chiropractic adjustments. These adjustments correct spinal misalignments, or subluxations, that can interfere with the communication between your brain and body. Improving the brain body connection improves how our body functions.

The Health-Promoting Power of an Adjustment

Our central nervous system (CNS) governs every aspect of our bodies. It’s like the command center, sending and receiving messages through the spinal cord, which acts as a vital relay system. When this communication line is clear and open, your body functions optimally. The problem is when there’s static in your nervous system.


Spinal misalignments can exert pressure on nerves, impairing the CNS’s ability to send and receive messages properly. This disruption can manifest in various ways, from pain and discomfort to more serious health issues.


That’s where chiropractic care comes in. Through precise, gentle adjustments, Dr. G works to correct these misalignments, relieving pressure on the nerves and reactivating your CNS.


When your CNS heals, an incredible transformation occurs. Your cells regenerate, joint motion is restored, and the overall health of your body improves. You may notice a decrease in pain, increased energy levels, improved sleep, and a stronger immune system.

Chiropractic adjustments don’t just treat symptoms; they promote better overall health by addressing the root cause of many health issues. That’s why chiropractic care is such a crucial part of living a healthy, fulfilled life.

Remember, your body has a remarkable capacity for healing—it just sometimes needs a little help along the way. And that’s what Dr. G is here for—to guide you towards optimal health and wellness, one adjustment at a time.

He’s grateful that Palmer discovered this form of natural care and the remarkable benefits that come with it!
