Maximum Expression of Life through Chiropractic

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Chiropractic is distinctly different from allopathic medicine and even many of the more natural forms of healthcare for one main reason—philosophy. The founder of chiropractic, D.D. Palmer, believed that the power that made the body, healed the body and that while this could be interfered with at times by physical, chemical, and mental stress, the specific chiropractic adjustment could correct it. Research has finally caught up with what this pioneer knew all along. His son, BJ Palmer, or the developer of chiropractic, proved this with some of the most advanced research of the day. This same research continues today in many fields of health and science. The specific chiropractic adjustment is also unique in that it is not a manipulation. Manipulations are done by physical therapists and osteopaths and their goal is very different than the doctor of chiropractic. We adjust for one reason only, the restoration of the nervous system to balance. As a result, chiropractic does not fall into the category of alternative medicine because we do not offer an alternative approach to the same ending, which for medicine is the alleviation of symptoms. Instead, we offer a direct approach to the cause of dysfunction in the first place. Over the years, as technology has advanced, we have seen proof of concept from the research being completed in neuro-physiology.

About Family First Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is not just for patients who have been involved in an accident or suffer from chronic neck or back pain. Chiropractic care benefits many people through all age ranges with a variety of health conditions. Not because it "fixes" these problems but because it corrects and balances the function of the system that does, the nervous system. Your nervous system is where structure meets function. And since these two concepts are completely intertwined you can't change one without changing the other. That's how regular chiropractic adjustments restore and maintain balance within your body, leaving you better prepared to live life to the fullest.
