Chiropractic includes the examination, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of nerve -musculoskeletal system, particularly conditions involving the spine. A practitioner of chiropractic is called chiropractors.
Chiropractic history began in the late 1800's in the United States when its founder Daniel David Palmer (1845-1913) postulated the first chiropractic disease theory by putting the spine function in conjunction with the nervous system's integrity. Over the years, chiropractic has evolved in step with scientific studies and research. Today, it is a profession that is primarily concerned with the diseases in which it has had the best effect: namely, back pain and disorders of muscle - skeletal apparatus.
