What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic (from the Greek: "Done by hand") is a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the musculoskeletal system in particular of the spine, and the effects of these disorders on the nervous system and general health.
(World Federation of Chiropractic)
 
 
Poor, inadequate or incorrect function in the spine can cause irritation of the nerves that control posture and movement. The spinal nerve stresses (which may be caused by factors such as accident, poor diet, lack of exercise or sport injuries, repetitive activities, poor posture and anxiety) can lead to the symptoms of discomfort such as back pain, neck pain, joint pain and headaches.
 
Chiropractic is an effective and safe approach to attain a healthy spine. To achieve good health you have to achieve good posture. Forward leaning head posture is a major problem of our modern society at work and at home. Good posture is as important as exercising and breathing properly, sleeping well, hydrating correctly and eating adequately. Also, chiropractors can help with other common musculoskeletal conditions.
 


Brief  History of Chiropractic

In 1895, at Davenport, USA, Daniel David Palmer was with Harvey Lillard. Mr Lillard had suffered hearing problems for over 17 years, following an injury to his back. Palmer discovered a 'lump' on his upper back and though that a joint might be out of alignment and pinching a nerve going to Lillard's ears. Palmer manipulated (adjusted) the joint, and immediately Lillard's hearing improved. After several treatments, Lillard's hearing was totally restored and Chiropractic was born.

Palmer's son, B J Palmer helped build Palmer College in Davenport into one of the largest Chiropractic Colleges in USA. He assisted build the school to the needed prominence to have Chiropractic accepted by the public and legislators. In the UK, from 2001 the title of 'Chiropractor' has been protected by law and it is a criminal offence, liable to prosecution, to describe oneself as any sort of chiropractor without being registered with the General Chiropractic Council.

Today, there are over 30 chiropractic institutions and over 90,000 chiropractors practising in more than 88 countries worldwide making Chiropractic one of the largest health care regulated professions. In recent years, The World Health Organisation requested from the World Federation of Chiropractic to write a report about the status of the profession. Please, read more about.
