Chiropractic Care

What is Chiropractic Care?

When chiropractic was first introduced to the world in 1896, it represented a new and different approach to the challenges of health care. Prior to that time, the approach was centered upon specific diseases. people tended to think of a specific treatment for each known disease.

Chiropractic has given the world a different and drugless concept of health, stressing the fact that many disease processes begin with the body’s inability to adapt to its environment. Chiropractic’s approach to treating human ills was not to look for the cure in drugs or chemicals, but to locate the area that was deficient in nerve supply, nutrition or circulation. Without unfettered nerve supply, the body is not able to perform to its full potential. The unique benefit of chiropractic’s clinical approach has allowed millions of people to regain good health often after other methods have failed. There may be times, however, when your body is not able to overcome a condition that has overwhelmed its defense mechanisms. Then the efforts of drugs or surgery may be warranted. When this occurs, we will refer you to the appropriate type of health practitioner for your particular problem. Dr. Pennington’s training enables him to advise you in these matters, so feel free to discuss your health problems at any time.
