Chiropractic practice is a form of alternative medicine. It is used to heal people through ways that are not similar to the traditional medicine. Chiropractic medicine mainly deals with treatment of health problems related to the spine, or the nervous system and make the patient much healthier and comfortable in the condition he is in.
Chiropractic was found by D.D Palmer during the late 1880s. The first experiment or the cure he had conducted was on a deaf janitor when he found that the janitor had lost his hearing while stooping to do work. He concluded that it was due to the injury caused to the spine that the janitor had lost his sense of hearing.
D.D Palmer cured the janitor by setting the lump between the shoulder and spine back to normal. The lump was perhaps a result of the injury to the spine. With the cure of the janitor he got confidence and two years later the he opened a school for chiropractic. Since then it has been popular for treating the health issues related to the spine or musculoskeletal system.
The experts in the field of medicine were skeptic about the practice of such an unconventional form of medicine, and even today there are medical practitioners who remain silent on the benefits of the chiropractic therapies and practices. But the fact is it has helped many people to get cured of their injuries or other issues related to health.
Chiropractic is popular in the west and people have opted for this as a form of treatment. The benefits of the practice can only be determined when it is taken seriously and it has a scientific base.
