Chiropractic - Beyond Back Pain


Many chiropractic patients have experienced positive health benefits reaching far beyond their musculoskeletal aches and pains. For many, there have been improvements in other conditions including allergy, asthma, breathing, circulation, digestion, hearing, heart function, ringing in the ears, sinus problems and urination, to name a few. In fact, the powers of chiropractic were initially discovered back in 1895 when an individual by the name of D.D. Palmer restored the hearing of a deaf person via a chiropractic adjustment. It thus comes as no surprise to most chiropractors and many chiropractic patients that researchers of a newly published study find that a minority of patients with self-reported nonmusculoskeletal symptoms report definite improvement after chiropractic care.
