Why has chiropractic become so popular?
Why has chiropractic become so popular? What is it about this healing art that started with one chiropractor and one patient in 1895 and is now the most widely used natural health profession in the world?
Chiropractic continues to grow because it works. It is effective, safe, and gentle, and respects the body’s natural healing and recuperative powers. As a drug-free, surgery-free alternative, it offers individuals a real choice in health care.
Chiropractic is now "in." Celebrities are going to them; professional and Olympic athletes are seeking them out; and, most important, families are visiting their neighborhood doctors of chiropractic for increased quality of life and for health without drugs and surgery.

Not too long ago, a group of athletes were recruited to participate in a study. A variety of sports activities were represented and none had ever had any chiropractic care! Half of the participants were place on a chiropractic evaluation and care program. The other half continued with their normal activities.
The group receiving chiropractic care was instructed not to change their habits-other than the chiropractic care provided during the twelve week study. Here’s the result: The chiropractic athlete was able to perform 16.7% better from his original athletic abilities!
Think about it. No change in diet. No change in exercise. No change in activities. Just the addition of chiropractic and they could outperform their previous abilities by almost seventeen percent!
