DD Palmer, founder of Chiropractic, in his original office in Davenport, Iowa.

CHIROPRACTIC comes from the Greek words “cheir“ (hand) and “praktikós” (practice) meaning to practice or done by hand.  D.D. Palmer, the founder of Chiropractic, coined this term in 1895. 

The word ch’i or qi (energy flow, life force) originates from traditional Chinese culture; which describes a vital life-energy within all living things.  Chiropractic is founded on the fundamental principal that an organizing intelligence is inherent in all life.

Chiropractic focusses on improving the structure and function of the spine and nerve system; the master control network of the body. This improves the communication pathways between the brain and body, resulting in better health.

Chiropractors do not diagnose or treat symptoms using drugs or surgery.  Chiropractic is simple.  ADJUSTMENTS to the spine clear interference in nerve system, allowing the body to heal itself naturally.
