The chiropractic profession was founded in 1895 by D.D. Palmer. In 1897, the Palmer School of Chiropractic, which would later become Palmer College of Chiropractic, was started.
A chiropractor is a primary care doctor who specializes in spinal health and well-being. Chiropractors help their patients reduce pain, increase movement, improve performance, and enhance their quality of life, without the use of drugs or surgery. They focus on prevention, diagnosis and conservative care.
In addition to adjustments, chiropractors also provide soft-tissue therapies, lifestyle recommendations, fitness coaching and nutritional advice.
An estimated 50 million Americans see a chiropractor each year, according to a recent Gallup study. As a chiropractor, you’ll help patients of all ages and abilities live their greatest health potential.
