What is Chiropractic?
Discovered in 1895 by Daniel David Palmer and developed by his son Bartlett Joshua Palmer throughout the early 20th century, chiropractic is a distinct healing art, science and philosophy that emphasizes the vital role of the human nervous system in maintaining health. Doctors of chiropractic acknowledge your body’s infinite healing potential from the inside-out, applying gentle yet powerful spinal adjustments to remove interference to the system that controls healing.
Your body is a miraculous self-healing organism. Did you know that you create new body parts from scratch every second of every day throughout your lifetime? You are able to accomplish this because your brain – your body’s master controller – sends a nerve to every organ, muscle, cell and nook and cranny of your body. This allows you to have the very best health you have ever had in your life and this is normal. If something interferes with the function of your nervous system, your body will not be able to do what it is designed and programmed to do – it will do it’s own thing!
Doctors of chiropractic acknowledge your body’s infinite healing potential from the inside-out, applying gentle yet powerful spinal adjustments to remove this interference to the system that controls healing, thereby allowing you to do what you are designed to do: HEAL!

Chiropractic is one of the safest healing arts ever studied. A multitude of studies have been performed to show that spinal adjustments, when performed by doctors of chiropractic, are so rarely – if ever – associated with side effects. When performing an adjustment on a child, skilled and experienced chiropractors like Dr Brennan need only use a minimal amount of force, analogous to the pressure used to check the skin of a ripe tomato, and can even be performed while the child is sleeping! Even when performed on adults, chiropractic adjustments are gentle, comfortable and extremely safe.
