Chiropractic care first became a treatment option in 1895. D.D. Palmer had a friend with deafness in one ear. Noticing a vertebrae out of place, Palmer adjusted his friend and restored his hearing.
Palmer had also had success in treating a friend with cardiovascular issues before, noting:
“I had a case of heart trouble which was not improving. I examined the spine and found a displaced vertebra pressing against the nerves, which innervate the heart. I adjusted the vertebra and gave immediate relief — nothing ‘accidental’ or ‘crude’ about this. Then I began to reason if two diseases, so dissimilar as deafness and heart trouble, came from impingement, a pressure on nerves, were not other disease due to a similar cause? Thus the science (knowledge) and art (adjusting) of Chiropractic were formed at that time.”
Dr. Smith is of the opinion that many symptoms and disorders can be treated with chiropractic care. When your spine is healthy, your body promotes natural healing, without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractic works by restoring your own inborn ability to be healthy by removing postural imbalances and structural misalignments that can accumulate in our bodies over time.
While not all conditions can be healed using chiropractic care, it does restore the body's balance and an ability for the body to communicate to itself and circulate healing throughout.
