The History of Chiropractic Care
Daniel David Palmer developed the methods of the modern-day chiropractic field. The first ever chiropractic patient was a janitor who was partially deaf. Palmer completed a simple spinal adjustment and the janitor claimed his hearing was improved due to the treatment.
Palmer went on to open the first school for chiropractic within the next two years. Since 1895, chiropractic care has become one of the most effective non-invasive treatment options for patients living with a wide variety of issues. Spinal adjustments have been used to help people of all ages overcome the discomfort in their lives and allow them to get back to doing the activities they enjoy.
What Kind Of Training Does A Baltimore MD Chiropractor Have?
In order to become a chiropractor, one must complete a minimum of four years at an accredited chiropractic institution. Before being able to attend chiropractic school, it is required to have an undergraduate degree in basic science or a number of years of experience in a different but relevant health profession.
Students working through the program to become chiropractors must log at least 4,200 hours in the classroom and also must, at minimum, undergo 1,000 hours of supervised training in a clinic. These supervised hours are used to teach how to diagnose specific conditions and what treatment techniques to use in order to bring the body back to its full potential.

"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Whole Body Healthcare! I went there for numbness in my fingers and pain in my shoulder area. From the moment I walked in the door, I felt so welcomed and cared for. All the staff are so caring and attentive! They walked me through everything and told me what to expect. i really like that Maureen sat with me and explained how my insurance worked so I knew upfront before I agreed to care any cost I would have. Whole Body Healthcare has changed my life! I will and have recommended this place to everyone I know! Love you all thank you for helping me restore my life and finally get out of pain!!”
