Chiropractic medicine has its genesis near the end of the 19th Century with D.D. Palmer, who founded the discipline as “a science of healing without drugs.”

It was this philosophy of drug-free treatment that freed practitioners to approach pain from a completely fresh perspective.  Chiropractic’s goal was to treat existing problems and prevent new ones from manifesting, with a discipline that precluded the need for drug therapies or surgery.

Chiropractic medicine was widely diffused throughout the 20th Century by Dr. Palmer’s son, also a practitioner.  Today, it’s a respected sector of the Western medical tradition, trusted by millions of people all over the world.

The benefits of chiropractic are achieved via spinal manipulation (known today as chiropractic adjustment and manipulation).  Chiropractic’s applications are diverse, enhancing muscle and joint mobility and range of motion.

It’s on this foundation that the innovative nature of chiropractic care has been built.  It stands as an important step forward in the evolution of Western medicine, because of its conservative, non-invasive nature and its ability to preclude the need for drugs.

Today, modern chiropractic techniques like flexion-distraction therapy gently improve and correct the posture of patients suffering from back pain.  Because of the progressive effects of regular chiropractic adjustment and manipulation, many patients are discovering a viable alternative to surgical solutions.
