HOW CAN CHIROPRACTIC CARE HELP YOU?
Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury, or muscle strain, and much more.
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.

Patient Victory Story
"Health in Balance is my favorite place to put my health back into balance:) I have worked with Dr Lisa, Dr Gary and most recently Dr Jordan for several years now and have sincerely valued the care and attention I've received for not only chiropractic care, but also a variety of health issues attributed to nutritional deficiencies, food allergies and hormonal imbalances. Coming here has changed the way I approach my healthcare and for that I am most grateful. The staff is fabulous and professional, and the therapy team is top notch. I always look forward to my visits and highly recommend Health in Balance for all your health care needs!"
