The Story of Chiropractic History 

The chiropractic profession dates back to early 1895, when D.D. Palmer performed his first adjustment of the spine.  Dr. Palmer was responsible for developing the Philosophy and techniques of Chiropractic. He was also the first to define vertebral subluxation, which are misalignments of the spinal column that put pressure on the nerves, which can affect the body’s functions.

The daughter-in-law of Palmer, Mabel Heath Palmer, became the first female chiropractor in 1905, with her son David Palmer soon following in the family’s footsteps. Soon the Palmer School of Chiropractic was founded, which paved the way for new chiropractic professionals to learn about this unique practice.   Since then, dozens of chiropractic schools have been founded all across our nation.

Benefits of Visiting the Chiropractor Today 

Over the last 120 years, the practice of chiropractic has evolved for the better, as we have continued to learn more about the human body. Still, the core concept of this form of health care has remained the same: the body is self-healing, and correcting the interference of that natural system can encourage that health.

For instance, if you were injured in a slip or fall, the misalignment will be readjusted and can help you feel like new once again. Similarly, if you have poor posture, regular visits to Dr. Rachael Thompson can help realign your spine. Everyone from pregnant women to athletes, newborns and up can benefit from this all-natural, holistic form of health care.

In fact, anyone suffering from discomfort such as headaches, back pain, neck pain or stiffness can find relief with chiropractic care. Aside from less pain, you might experience an improved mood, sleep better and have more energy due to regular chiropractic visits. At Impact Chiropractic, we use gentle, hands-on techniques that can alleviate pain, and improve a lifetime of wellness.
