What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is the third largest medical profession worldwide, specialized in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanically induced dysfunctions of the human musculoskeletal system and their effects on the nervous system. The human being is regarded as a physical, mental and spiritual whole.

The term Chiropractic comes from the ancient Greek and means “to treat with the hand”.

As an independent health profession, modern chiropractic was founded in 1895 by Daniel David Palmer in Davenport, Iowa, USA, and has continued to develop ever since.

Today, the efficacy, safety and cost-effectiveness of chiropractic have been proven by many scientific studies. Chiropractic treatment does not involve drugs, injections or surgery.
