The Chiropractic Center

Chiropractic is defined as "The science of chiropractic deals with the relationship between the articulations of the skeleton and the nervous system, and the role of this relationship in the restoration and maintenance of health."
 

The Chiropractic profession is the 2nd largest health care profession. What this profession is all about, however, is largely misunderstood. Having been a chiropractor myself since 1981 I'll give you some helpful insight into my profession.


Today, there are more than 70,000 active chiropractic licenses in the United States. All 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands officially recognize chiropractic as a health care profession.

The History of Chiropractic

The History of Chiropractic

Let’s start at the very beginning—chiropractic care has been around for thousands of years. While it has not always been researched or regulated, spinal adjustment for pain relief is not a new idea. In fact, Hippocrates, well-known as the Father of Modern Medicine, is credited to have stated: “Look well to the spine for the cause of disease.”


Though the most well-known, Hippocrates was likely not the first to begin looking to the spine for healing: historians have found ancient writings from China and Greece that date back to 2700 B.C. and 1500 B.C. These writings discuss manipulating the spine for the relief of back pain. Further evidence indicates that other ancient civilizations also turned to spinal adjustment, such as Japan, Egypt, Syria, Babylon, as well as the Mayans, Incas and other Native Americans.

This lengthy section explores the history of Chiropractic.

They rely heavily on hands-on procedures to determine structural and functional problems, and they use manipulation to promote normal bodily function correcting or preventing these structural deviations.

In medical practice there are two key parts to treatment; the diagnosis (identifying and/or naming the disease or syndrome) and the treatment (operation, drug, etc.). In Contact Reflex Analysis we do not diagnose or treat disease, but similarly we also have two key parts to treatment — the analysis and the personalized health improvement program (using designed clinical nutrition). Simply put, first we do an analysis and then we design a natural health improvement program to help you handle what we find in our analysis of your body and condition.
