Hippocrates, “the father of Medicine”, said, “Look well to the spine for the cause of disease.”
Spinal manipulation has been used by many cultures for thousands of years. It was advocated by healers, including Hippocrates, from Africa, China, Egypt, Greece, India and Rome. Spinal manipulation is probably the oldest form of “therapy” known to mankind. In those early days, spinal manipulation was very unspecific and possibly not too different from yesterday’s traction techniques.
Chiropractic as a distinct health profession developed in Davenport, Iowa, USA in 1895. History describes the recovery of a patient from deafness by a skillful, manipulative thrust to the mid-spine delivered by D. D. Palmer, “the father of Chiropractic”.
Chiropractic (Greek: chiro=hand, praktikos=to practice) was expanded in the early 1900’s by his son, B. J. Palmer. Since the inception of the first spinal adjustment in 1895, chiropractic has become more advanced and precise with the assistance of technology.
Chiropractors locate spinal subluxations. A spinal subluxation is when a vertebra (spinal bone) has lost it proper position and is impinging on a nerve and interfering with the transmission of that nerve. In my office, I locate spinal subluxations with the Pulstar
Computerized Technology. The Pulstar is a state-of-the-art instrument that locates the patient’s unique areas of spinal subluxations. Once those areas are located, the Pulstar also starts the process of gently and precisely moving that vertebra (e) to the proper position via vibrating impulses with the goal of removing interference in the nervous system. In order for your body (ALL your organs, muscles, tissues, cells) to work optimally, your nervous system HAS to be working at 100%. If spinal subluxations are present, your nervous system is working less than 100%, which possibly can present as neck PAIN, low back PAIN, mid-back PAIN, fatigue, loss of energy, heartburn, indigestion, menstrual cramps, allergies, just to name a few.
Why live in pain and misery? Have you been afraid to see a Chiropractor because you thought they will “crack your neck and back”? DO NOT be afraid anymore. With the Pulstar, there is absolutely NO CRACKING, TWISTING, or POPPING of the spine.
