Davenport Iowa, 1895. Canadian D.D. Palmer performs the first vertebral adjustment. Chiropractic was born. Over the past 100 years, techniques were refined to give us chiropractic as we know it.
In a nut shell, chiropractic aims to reestablish communication between brain and body. Through slight manipulations, the chiropractor corrects subluxations (dysfunctional vertebral joints) of the spine. Once corrected, the nerve impulses can reach destination without interference. When the body is free of interferences, it can function at 100%.
