Chiropractic care is the treatment of injuries or misalignment of the spine and today, chiropractic care is becoming more mainstream than it was just 20 years ago. It is a natural way in which to heal the body without the use of drugs or other pharmaceuticals.

Many people think that chiropractic treatment just came about in recent years, but in fact, its origins date back to Greece and China in 2700 B.C. and probably even earlier. In the United States, it actually began in 1895 by Daniel David Palmer in Davenport, Iowa. Much has changed since its early beginnings, but just like all medicines, technology has allowed it to advance to a point that chiropractors are seeing patients for a variety of reasons and finding ways in which to treat them without the use of medications

You will of course, be asked to describe the pain, where it is, when it hurts, and the level of pain you are currently in at the present time.
