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.
Chiropractic Health Benefits

Those living with a number of different health conditions that have so much to gain from chiropractic care. At our clinic, we have those that we could consider healthy individuals that are gaining benefits with maintenance chiropractic care. Life is hard and stressful but the amount of stress that it truly puts on the body is often underestimated. Receiving regular chiropractic adjustments will help the body function at its optimal potential, ultimately giving the body everything it needs to take care of itself.
Chiropractic is just as much about preventing injury and disease as it is about relieving pain from existing conditions. Because chiropractic adjustments decrease the stress that is put on the nervous system and keep proper motion within the joints, if a person becomes ill or injured, it is found that the healing process is much faster and often the need of medication is not necessary. The ability for the body to heal itself, decreasing the need for medication or surgery is increased if the person’s lifestyle combines chiropractic care with a health and active lifestyle.
