What Is Chiropractic?

A way to restore spinal and neural integrity

Chiropractic is the world's largest holistic healing art. Worldwide, over 60,000 Doctors of Chiropractic (D.C.) are practicing in over 60 countries around the world. Conventional chiropractors focus on treating musculoskeletal conditions, but your holistic chiropractor at Healing Wave Chiropractic knows that the spine has much more use for you than just movement, posture and pain sensation.

The spine has long been studied in the East for its role in consciousness and in moving energy. In the West, the spine is mainly valued for its biomechanical function and it is studied as a primary cause of back pain.

Near the end of the 19th century, a Canadian man named Daniel David Palmer blended these two important schools of thought when he started documenting and studying how interference with the spine's function can affect the integrity of the nerve system and therefore all aspects of a person's well-being. D.D. Palmer delivered the first chiropractic adjustment in 1895 and when his patients started to achieve amazing results with the care, he formally began the chiropractic profession.
