WHY I BECAME A CHIROPRACTOR IN COCONUT CREEK
I decided to become a Chiropractor in Coconut Creek over 17 years ago when I was lecturing nearby and saw a need in this area for Chiropractic to reach the community. I was drawn to this city as Coconut Creek has a great community feel that offers so much to their residents including outdoor festivals, marketing, free concerts, beautiful parks, and more. It is also so convenient to get here from neighboring cities.
COMMON CHIROPRACTIC MISCONCEPTIONS
Common misconceptions that people have about Chiropractic is that we only treat back pain. When under care people almost always realize that another area of their health has improved since chiropractic strengthens our immune system regardless of condition or age.
THE HISTORY OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE
The word “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer. In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.
D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.
WHAT KIND OF TRAINING DOES A CHIROPRACTOR HAVE?
Chiropractic doctors go through a minimum of four years of schooling at a chiropractic college, generally preceded by an undergraduate degree in the basic sciences or several years of experience in a prior relevant health care field.
Students of chiropractic care must spend a minimum of at least 4,200 hours with their teacher, and a minimum of 1,000 hours of fully supervised clinical training with an instructor as they learn the appropriate diagnosis and treatment techniques to help heal your body and restore it to its natural, fully functioning state.
