Most people think that a chiropractor pops, cracks or snaps back pain and neck pain away but ironically, the science that is the foundation for chiropractic has nothing to do with back or neck pain. In 1895 the first chiropractic adjustment was delivered when a man that had lost hearing in one ear. Following the adjustment his hearing was restored. The founder of chiropractic, DD Palmer believed that by removing a subluxation many conditions could be healed with the body’s natural strength. Through the science of chiropractic, passionate doctors are setting out to improve the health of millions without interfering with the body’s natural processes with proper eating, exercise and chiropractic adjustments and without medications and surgery.
Chiropractic is a type of health care that works with the nervous system as well as the musculoskeletal system. Doctors of chiropractic are trained to diagnose and treat injuries and disorders that involve the nervous system, muscles and bones. Chiropractors in San Antonio work directly with the nervous system to remove any interference that may be preventing the body to heal itself and to restore natural processes within the body. Like all other areas in health care, new patients will undergo a consultation that involves reviewing past and current health conditions, medications and surgeries as well as a physical examination. It is common to take x-rays in order to further establish the cause of pain and make sure there is no underlying condition which can only be found on an x-ray. Once this whole process is completed, the doctor will use all of the information to establish a diagnosis and create an individualized treatment plan.
