Have You Ever Wondered How The Practice Of Chiropractic Started?
In the Greek language, the phrases chir (hand) and praktos (done) were joined to produce the word "chiropractic," which means "done by hand." In fact, Daniel David Palmer, the originator of chiropractic care, chose that exact phrase as his personal favorite. Harvey Lillard, who was deaf to a great extent at the time, was cured by D.D. Palmer during a chiropractic adjustment in 1895. Harvey Lillard subsequently said that the modification had resulted in a significant improvement in his hearing.
Following that, in 1895, D.D. Palmer founded the world's first chiropractic school, and for the next century, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, as well as a variety of other physical afflictions. Dr. Palmer's work has had an influence on millions of individuals and continues to do so today.
What Kind Of Schooling Does A Chiropractor Need?
Prior to entering the chiropractic profession, students must finish at least four years of training at a chiropractic university, which is generally preceded by an undergraduate degree in the fundamental sciences or several years of experience in a previous allied health care profession.
Student chiropractors are required to spend a minimum of 4,200 hours with their teacher, as well as a minimum of 1,000 hours in clinical training with an instructor, in order to acquire the necessary diagnostic and treatment procedures to help heal and restore your body to maximum performance.
