What is Chiropractic
Chiropractic is the world's largest drugless healing art. Today, over 60,000 Doctors of Chiropractic (D.C.) are practicing in over 60 countries around the world.
In short, chiropractic is the science, art, and philosophy of optimizing peoples well-being and life by maximizing the integrity of your master control system (spinal cord), your brain and nervous system. The founder of modern chiropractic is Dr. D.D. Palmer and he was mainly focused on the relationship between the integrity of the spine and its impact on a persons overall health. Your spine is the key to your health and inside of it is the infinite inborn capacity to heal. This divine wisdom utilizes your brain and nerve system to coordinate your body and healing capacity.
