A Brief History of Chiropractic Science

The first big step in chiropractic care becoming an accepted science happened in the late 19th century. While it has been around for centuries, it wasn’t until 1895 that Dr. D.D. Palmer became the first person to define spinal misalignment or vertebral subluxation, and diagnose a patient with the condition, as well as correct it using a chiropractic adjustment. Dr. Palmer understood how the body could benefit from proper spinal alignment and the significance relating to spinal pressure on the nerves caused by misalignments.
In the following decades, Dr. Palmer’s son and daughter-in-law worked hard to advance the understanding of chiropractic care. This resulted in the opening of the Palmer School of Chiropractic, which is now a leading research institute for holistic approaches to health care and for scientific advancements associated with chiropractic care.

Later Advancements

Since the Palmer School was established, various other facilities and institutes opened across the globe. In their own way, they have continued to advance chiropractic care techniques and science. Every day, there are new advancements in technology, methods, and techniques. In fact, technology continues to improve the effectiveness of diagnosing spinal subluxations.

State Of The Art Chiropractic

The latest scientific and most research-based development, Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP), is a highly-advanced chiropractic technique proven to correct and restore your spinal curves back into alignment. CBP uses a combination of biology, physiology, physics, anatomy, and even geometry, making it unique compared to other chiropractic techniques. At PCH Chiropractic, Drs. Palmer and Catherine Peet specialize in the CBP technique because of its advanced procedures and proven lasting results.
CBP aims to not only provide relief of symptoms but identify the cause of symptoms and correct the spine’s structure, so patients can live an optimal life and function with lasting health and wellness.

Benefits of Chiropractic

There are endless benefits of chiropractic adjustments. These benefits can help those who prefer a non-invasive and holistic approach to their health. No matter your age or health status, you can benefit from these neurological-based and science-backed approaches.
Regular chiropractic care can help you manage pain and discomfort, as well as improve your flexibility, mobility, posture, and strength. It can also enhance your overall health, decreasing your risk of disease or illness. Drs. Palmer and Catherine Peet at PCH Chiropractic in San Clemente and Dana Point, CA, and the approach they take is special.

The chiropractic approach to health is new, unique, and very different from traditional allopathic medical care. It doesn’t treat a patient’s symptoms with medication or surgery. Rather, chiropractic strives to remove interference to the nervous system and the subsequent effects that can occur resulting in a potential loss in the ability for the body to heal itself.

In chiropractic, we say, “The body is a self-healing organism.” So chiropractic adjustments are not given to “cure” the body of any particular symptom or disease. Rather, they are given to restore the body’s innate ability to heal itself. We don’t claim to cure any particular symptom or ailment. But when the body’s self-healing is re-awakened after chiropractic adjustments, in some cases, patients have reported improvements in the following:
