CHIROPRACTIC HISTORY

Spinal manipulation is traced all the way back to the beginning of recorded time. Writings from 2700 B.C. in China and Greece mention spinal manipulation to ease back pain. Hippocrates, the father of medicine wrote," Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases. "

Dr. Daniel D. Palmer named Chiropractic in 1895 after helping a deaf janitor regain his hearing with a spinal manipulation. Palmer read the medical journals of his time and developed a theory that misaligned spinal bones put pressure on the sensitive nerves and caused a whole host of problems.

In 1897 he established the first School of Chiropractic and today there are Chiropractic Colleges and Universities across the U.S. and around the world.

A New Zealand study published in 1979 strongly supports the efficacy of chiropractic care. It was influencial in expanding medical cooperation and acceptance of chiropractic care. In 1993 a study published in Canada pointed out the cost effectiveness of chiropractic and concluded that, it's natural and preventative approach, could save hundreds of millions of dollars annually in work disability payments and direct health care costs.

  • "No More Tests
    "My first visit was a couple of years ago. My right knee and ankle had been swollen for over two years. My family doctor kept sending me for tests, but no one knew why my right leg was swollen. After approximately two months of treatment at White Street Chiropractic, the swelling had decreased substantially and remains that way today.""

    "I am a skeptic at heart, and I have to admit that I was hesitant to seek chiropractic help.

Now I feel confident that my commitment to my health and support by chiropractic will make me more comfortable, stronger and healthier.""

  • "Small Adjustments for Pain Relief
    "For a number of years, I had been bothered by back and arthritic hip pain. Then the pain became acute. Doctors offered only surgery or heavy pain killers.
