The Chiropractic Facts
People’s opinions and thoughts about what chiropractic is varies from state to state, city to city, and in some instances family to family. The hardcore chiropractic facts are set in stone, it is just a matter of our/my generation messing it up for others. The year was 1895 and the very first chiropractic adjustment was performed by Dr. D.D. Palmer in Davenport, IA. The adjustment was for the restoration of a hearing loss! That is the beginning of some chiropractic facts. In 1895 Frederick E Blaisdell patents the pencil as well…..that is not chiropractic facts. It is pretty important what Dr. Palmer accomplished at that time. He also set a foundation to explore new values, principles, and an understanding of what the body is capable of. Before the first adjustment Dr. Palmer was a magnetic healer and tried many other different types of healing arts. After the first adjustment the study and foundation of chiropractic was established, no more magnets.
Did Dr. Palmer use some sort of blueberry enzyme soap, magnets, health plus Vit C, or some electrical laser for the first adjustment? NO! The only tools at his disposal were his hands. Chiro means hand in Latin. Practic in Latin means practice. Chiropractors use their hands to find and locate disturbances (subluxations = a bone, muscle, tissue pressing upon a nerve thus creating dysfunction in one’s system) and adjust them. Here are some chiropractic facts. If somebodies master control system (nerve system) is not allowing them to adapt to their stress in life, then your body will not express its full potential. How does someone not adapt? Your body will give you signs and symptoms: the flu, headaches, sciatica, ADHD, acid re-flux, hemorrhoids, infertility, and indigestion…get the picture? Chiropractic allows your body to adapt and HEAL by itself. No gimmicks, and no possible side effects like you see on drug advertisements. The only side effect that chiropractic produces is to express life the way you were supposed to. Chiropractic facts.
