The science of Chiropractic Care began in 1892 when D.D. Palmer administered the first chiropractic adjustment. D.D. Palmer understood that the nervous system, which is composed of the human brain, spinal cord and the peripheral nerves that exit the spinal cord via the vertebra in the spine controlled and coordinated all aspects of the human body. If pressure, through a subluxated vertebra or other cause is placed upon the nerves, the body will begin to function improperly and produce symptoms.
It is the role of the Doctor of Chiropractic to remove the pressure placed upon the nerves caused from a vertebral subluxation to allow the body to restore proper function.
