Chiropractors believe that “subluxations” can cause the medical conditions that we experience. They base this on the idea that when our bodies are injured and the structure to our body (spine) it leads to a misalignment that can cause damage how nerve signals are relayed back and forth from the brain. The belief is that when those who practice chiropractic realign the body then the nerve relays can be corrected thus correcting any resultant medical conditions. Chiropractic theory is that good health is related to proper spinal column position and condition. In 1895 Daniel David Palmer founded Chiropractic practices. He believed that diseases were a result of spinal bones that had become misaligned. His theory of “subluxations” these misalignments of the spinal bones is what causes disease when the “nerve energy flow” is interrupted. This flow from brain to all the body cells is interrupted by the spinal misalignment causing disease.
