Chiropractic in West Bloomfield, MI
Chiropractic is a complementary alternative medicine primarily involving diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and their effects on the nervous system. Treatment focuses on manipulation of the musculoskeletal system; however, chiropractic theory is also a holistic approach to total wellness.
Chiropractic assists in identifying problematic areas in the musculoskeletal system that may prevent the body from maintaining full health. Chiropractic belief is that the body is capable of healing itself, if it is provided with the right ingredients, correct alignment, and the nervous system is unimpeded.
History of Chiropractic Principles
The principals behind chiropractic care are ancient in origin and can be traced back to the writings of Hippocrates, Galen, and various ancient Chinese and Hindu texts. Chiropractic was officially founded in the 1890s, the father of chiropractic, D.D. Palmer called it “a science of healing without drugs.” D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic college in Iowa in 1897.
What Types of Disorders can be Treated?
Central nervous system disorders that respond well to chiropractic care include joint pain, muscle pain, headaches, neck and back pain, mobility issues, pinched nerves, and sports injuries. Chronic disorders such as scoliosis or sciatica can also be treated. Reduction in stress on the nervous system from manipulation of the spine can result in an improved immune system and digestive function, which can assist with many facets of overall wellness, and treat a variety of diseases from acid reflux to asthma.
