What is the history of chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care started in 1897 in Davenport, IA. David D. Palmer (D.D.) was a magnetic healer from Canada who theorized that nerve compression and irritation at the nerve root level in the spine would cause dysfunction and pain. He put his theory to the test and adjusted the janitor of his building. As the story goes, the janitor, Harvey Lillard, was deaf and after D.D. adjusted him, his hearing was restored.

D.D. taught chiropractic to his son, B.J., who made it his life work to develop and spread the profession of chiropractic.

While the basic principle of chiropractic remains unchanged, how doctors of chiropractic treat their patients continues to evolve and morph to help a wider variety of patients.

What does a chiropractor do?

Chiropractors are healthcare professionals who specialize in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders, particularly those related to the spine. At Tundra Chiropractic, our chiropractors provide a range of services to help patients improve their overall health and well-being:

  • History Exam: We begin by taking a thorough history of your health concerns, including any past injuries, medical conditions, and symptoms you may be experiencing. Understanding your health history helps us develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
  • Full Spine Evaluation: We conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your spine to assess its alignment, range of motion, and overall health. This evaluation may include palpation, range of motion tests, and other orthopedic assessments to identify areas of dysfunction and determine the most appropriate course of treatment.
  • X-ray if Needed: In some cases, we may recommend X-rays to further evaluate your condition and identify any underlying issues that may be contributing to your symptoms. X-rays provide valuable information about the structure and alignment of your spine, allowing us to develop an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
  • Adjustment: Chiropractic adjustments, also known as spinal manipulation, are the cornerstone of chiropractic care. During an adjustment, our chiropractors use gentle, targeted force to realign misaligned vertebrae in the spine, relieving pressure on nerves and restoring proper function to the musculoskeletal system. Adjustments can help alleviate pain, improve mobility, and promote overall wellness.

Overall, our goal at Tundra Chiropractic is to provide safe, effective, and personalized care to help you achieve optimal health and wellness. Whether you're seeking relief from pain, recovering from an injury, or simply looking to improve your overall well-being, we're here to support you on your journey to better health.

Does chiropractic work?

Absolutely! Chiropractic care has helped countless individuals find relief from pain, improve mobility, and enhance their overall well-being. Just take a look at our Google reviews– they're like a virtual high-five from our satisfied patients! From "life-changing" adjustments to "miraculous" recoveries, our office is buzzing with success stories.

Chiropractic care focuses on restoring proper alignment to the spine and promoting optimal nervous system function. This can have a positive impact on various aspects of health, including reduced pain, improved posture, better mobility, and enhanced athletic performance.

Whether chiropractic care "works" for you depends on your specific health goals, the nature of your condition, and how your body responds to treatment. If you're curious about chiropractic care and its potential benefits, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with us to discuss your concerns and explore how chiropractic care may help you achieve your health goals.

Are there chiropractic adjustment side effects?

Yes, you're absolutely right! While many patients feel great after a chiropractic adjustment, it's not uncommon to experience some mild soreness, especially if the body is in an inflammatory state or if there was tension or misalignment prior to the adjustment. This soreness typically resolves within a day or two as the body adjusts to the changes made during the adjustment.

It's also worth noting that some patients may experience other mild and temporary side effects after a chiropractic adjustment, such as fatigue or a temporary increase in symptoms. However, these side effects are usually short-lived and part of the body's natural healing process.

Overall, the vast majority of patients find chiropractic adjustments to be safe, gentle, and effective for relieving pain, improving mobility, and enhancing overall well-being. If you have any concerns about potential side effects or if you experience persistent or severe symptoms after an adjustment, it's important to communicate with your chiropractor so they can provide you with appropriate guidance and support.

How can I find a chiropractor near me?

Many of our patients come to us based on the referral of a loved one. It’s highly likely that someone close to you already receives chiropractic care. You can start by asking friends and family. The internet can also be a good resource. Online reviews and testimonials can be helpful when deciding on a chiropractic office.

Not all chiropractors treat patients the same way (and that’s a good thing.) Treatment methods offered at an office are another great way to pick the chiropractor that best suits your needs.
