Founded in 1895 by Danial Palmer who treated janitor for a condition by spinal adjustment / manipulation with dramatic results. Danial Palmer realized that as the spine was the main highway for the central nervous system any damage to it could interrupt or restrict the flow of instructions carried along it to the brain and therefore lead to symptoms in any part of the body.
Palmer opened the first college of Chiropractic in 1898, which flourished despite initial skepticism. Today Chiropractic treatments are commonplace around the world with around 2,500 chiropractors working in Britain alone.
Doctors of chiropractic are specialists in the diagnosis and treatment of joint and muscle disorders which are a major cause of irritation to the nervous system.
Many people from pregnant women to athletes to the elderly can benefit from Chiropractic care.
