Most people know very little regarding the history of health care and the importance of manual treatment of their joints and alignment. Chiropractic was discovered in 1895 after thousands of years of Doctors investigating what was known as "spinal lesions". Spinal "lesions" were areas of the spine that were found to be tender and were associated with the nerves that left the spine serving the organs that were involved in a person's illness. The Physicians in the past developed many different methods for alleviating illness by manipulating these spinal nerves. In Chinese medicine they found these areas and use needles to clear the tension blocking the nerve energy. Massage therapists rubbed the areas and talked about the lymph fluids. In 1895, with the development of the X-ray machine, for the first time, Doctors could see the vertebra associated with these spinal "lesions" and found the vertebra was out of place causing the interference to normal function. The new insight lead to the correction of the spinal lesion by correcting the misalignment. Chiropractic was born due to the X-ray machine. The word "Chiropractic" actually means "done by hand" and was derived from the Greek language. At the same time as Chiropractic was developed, a similiar spinal manipulating method was developed and called Osteopathy. Osteopathy (D.O.) continues to this day, however the modern Osteopath practices more like a medical Doctor providing chemical therapy or perforiming surgery. Only Chiropractic continues to study and expand on the art of reducing these "spinal lesions" which is considered the cause of dis-ease. The modern science of Chiropractic has developed considerably since 1895 however detecting misalignments is still performed by the use of X-rays. People interested in achieving better health or finding a solution to a specific health problem would be well advised to have their spinal columns checked for spinal misalignments. The Chiropractic profession is the only profession educating and training their Doctors to detect and correct spinal misalignments causing nerve interference..
