WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?
Chiropractic is a healing discipline firmly grounded in science. Although its main focus is the relationship between the skeleton (particularly the spine) and the nervous system that runs through it, chiropractic is concerned with the care of the entire body. Chiropractic focuses on addressing the source of your problem, not simply with treating symptoms.
Chiropractors use various diagnostic methods, which may include x-rays, to discover the state of your health, paying particular attention to your spine and bone structure. Spinal adjustments, or manipulation as it is also referred to, as well as other manual techniques are their primary methods of helping your body heal itself.
1995 marked the 100th anniversary of the evolution of modern chiropractic. In recognition of this milestone, centennial celebrations were held across Canada and throughout the world. Canada Post issued a commemorative stamp in recognition of the centennial of the profession, and to honour its Canadian Founder, Dr. Daniel David Palmer.
