Long before the advent of modern medicine – before pill-popping, IV machines, before any surgery more complex than amputation – people still had a need to take care of their bodies. In the earliest known medical documents of recorded history, we can find allusions to the chiropractic care people engaged in to soothe their stresses and woes. Hippocrates himself once demanded of his readers; “get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite of many diseases.” A little over two thousand years later, we can only conclude that Hippocrates gave excellent advice.
Over the years, increased knowledge of the body has allowed chiropractic care to flourish, become more nuanced, and accurately address a huge number of the imbalances and issues a body can accumulate. In the United States alone, there are approximately 77,000 Doctors of Chiropractic treating 27 million adults and children across the country. According to the Consumer Reports Health Rating Center, chiropractic outperformed all other back pain treatments available, and is now classified as a primary care approach for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of back pain and spinal disorders.
