The first step is the examination and locating the primary cause of symptoms. This is not necessarily found where symptoms are presented, the body is capable of compensating for specific problems.
The second step is targeted treatment of the most important blockages and physical restrictions (also referred to as somatic dysfunction and subluxation). The body is to be enabled to help heal itself.
The final step is particularly important. The body needs time to integrate the restored functions into its movement pattern. At this stage further treatment is counter-productive.

In the 19th century the American physician Dr. Andrew Taylor Still developed the medical treatment form termed osteopathy.
The term osteopathy is derived from the Greek words “Osteo” meaning bone and “pathy” meaning disease.
Modern chiropractic was founded by the Canadian Daniel David Palmer and perfected by Clarence Gonstead. They developed special grip techniques to bring displaced vertebrae and joints without hazardous rotational impulse back to their original position.
The term chiropractic is derived from the Greek words “Chiro” meaning hand, and “Praktik” meaning activity. The chiropractic/osteopathy concept is based on the understanding of integration of body, mind and soul, the correlation of structure and function, and the body’s potential to heal itself!
