How Can Chiropractic Care Help You?
Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.
The History of Chiropractic Care
The word “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer. In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.
D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.
"I am a skeptic at heart, and I have to admit that I was hesitant to seek chiropractic help. But after almost three years of suffering daily and refusing to consider back surgery as an option, I came to Pudenz Family Chiropractic . The pain I had begun to experience in my wrists is gone and my daily dosage of medication has become unnecessary. Now I feel confident that my commitment to my health and support by chiropractic will make me more comfortable, stronger and healthier."
"My first visit was five years ago. My right knee and ankle had been swollen for over two years. My family doctor kept sending me for tests, but no one knew why my right leg was swollen. After approximately two months of treatment at Pudenz Family Chiropractic , the swelling had decreased substantially and remains that way today."
