What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a science, art, and philosophy of things natural. It is one of the fastest growing health care professions in the world due to the growing realization of its effectiveness as a natural, non-invasive and drugless approach to health and life. Chiropractic is America`s third largest primary health care profession, exceeded in numbers only by dentists and medical doctors. Doctors of chiropractic practice a conservative, non-surgical method of care based on the premise that the body is capable of achieving and maintaining health through its own innate recuperative powers, provided that it receives the necessary elements including proper nutrition, clean air, water, rest, exercise, and a properly functioning nervous system.

After WWI, the chiropractic colleges experienced an exponential growth in enrollment, and several prominent chiropractors graduated from these post-war classes. Click here to continue reading...
