What is Chiropractic?

Clear Lake Chiropractor Comments: From time to time people will still ask me “What is Chiropractic?” Chiropractic is a drugless healing art that uses manipulation, or adjustment, of a joint to alleviate a neuromuscular dysfunction. Chiropractic comes from the Greek words cheiros and praktikos, meaning “done by hand”. The American Chiropractic Association says that “Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic services are used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches. Chiropractic was discovered by David Daniel Palmer in 1895. Since then it has become an accepted form of conservative healthcare that is estimated to treat 30 million people a year.
