Theory and Practice of Chiropractors
The theory and practice of Chiropractic was first brought forward by Dr. D.D. Palmer in the 1890’s and it was further developed by his son B.J.Palmer in the early years of 20th century.
There are both traditional as well as modern Chiropractors who practice their trade. Traditional chiropractors believe in subluxation and innate intelligence of the subconscious mind to promote healing of the body while modern chiropractors assimilate the theory and practice of other conventional disciplines such as massage, exercise and ice therapy.
It is interesting to note that traditional chiropractic theory is against vaccination but western medicine encourages it. On these grounds, there is a tussle between modern western medicine and traditional chiropractic. However, most chiropractors in the U.S. use modern diagnostic tools such X ray machines, UltraSonography and scans.
