Every so often people will ask, "Are you a doctor?" The answer is yes, but not like your physician or surgeon who specialize in medical treatment.
The chiropractor is a "doctor" in "chiropractic" which makes us specialist in chiropractic care, not the treatment or prevention of symptoms, conditions or disease.
September marks the history of chiropractic month. In 1895 chiropractic started with the first chiropractic adjustment given to Harvey Lillard. During this era chiropractic was mainly utilized when a symptom or condition was present. With limited understanding of the benefits from chiropractic care, chiropractors believed the adjustment made the symptoms or conditions disappear.
Overtime, chiropractic philosophy has created a greater understanding of the benefits from visiting your doctor of chiropractic; it's the exact opposite of visiting your medical doctor. Instead of only seeing a chiropractor for pain, it is now used to reach potential in all areas of everyone’s life, including children.
In order to understand where the future of chiropractic is, we have to understand the history. This month and everyday at ChiroWay, we strive to educate our members about the importance of regular chiropractic care.
