"The Doctor of the future will give no medicines, but will interest his patients in the care of the Human Frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease"
attributed to Thomas Edison



"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."

One of Dr. Palmer's patients, a minister, is credited with attaching the name "Chiropractic" to the art and science of manipulation. He took the Greek words for "hand" (cheiros) and "done by" (pracktos) and put them together to spell Chiropractic, meaning "done by the hand."

There isn't a profession out there that is more misunderstood than Chiropractic. In fact, most people, when asked, think a Chiropractor is a "back doctor". While this is true in part, there's considerably more to this profession than that. We'll guide you through a detailed explanation of every component of this rapidly expanding art and science, once you begin treatment.


Chiropractic is a form of natural health care that focuses on treating a patient without the use of drugs or medicines.

When all of your body's inter-related systems, including your musculoskeletal, nervous and vascular systems are in balance and functioning properly, your body possesses a remarkable knack for healing itself. This state is called homeostasis.

Accidents, sports injuries, stress, and over-exertion, can cause your spine to fall out of its natural alignment. When this happens, your nervous system ceases to function properly. This could lead to back and neck pain, headaches, and other kinds of problems, seemingly unrelated to spinal misalignment.

This intricate physiological and biochemical interrelationship among the various body systems is what chiropractors dedicate themselves to exploring and treating. Many types of pain and disease can be linked to problems with your spinal cord, musculoskeletal, vascular and neurological systems. When one or more of these systems is compromised, your body fails to function normally and resistance to disease and further injury is compromised. Chiropractic also explores and addresses the areas of nutrition, exercise, as well as healthy environmental and emotional relationships. It is this "mind-body" connection that forms the tenet of the principles under which chiropractors practice their healing art.


A doctor of chiropractic is a primary care provider whose purpose, as a practitioner of the healing arts, is to help meet the health needs of individual patients and of the public, giving particular attention to the structural and neurological aspects of the body.

The application of science in chiropractic concerns itself with the relationship between structure, primarily the spine, and function, primarily coordinated by the nervous system of the human body, as that relationship may affect the restoration and preservation of health.

Further, this application of science in chiropractic focuses on the inherent ability of the body to heal without the use of drugs or surgery.

As a gatekeeper for direct access to the health delivery system, the doctor of chiropractic's responsibilities as a primary care provider include wellness promotion, health assessment, diagnosis and the chiropractic management of the patient's health care needs. When indicated, the doctor of chiropractic consults with, co-manages, or refers to other health care providers.
