Chiropractor Nanuet NY
Chiropractic care uses physical therapies, herbal medicines, laser acupuncture and gentle spinal mobilization to alleviate a wide variety of health challenges. The most common conditions we treat include muscle strain, neck pain, chronic back pain, and headaches. Chiropractic uses spinal adjustment to improve mobility, alignment, and to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves providing a non-invasive solution for pain relief.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help You?
Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.
The History of Chiropractic Care
The name “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer. In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.
D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.
What Kind of Training Does a Chiropractor Have?
Dr Strauss has a Bachelors degree from the University of New Hampshire. He then went on to Palmer College of Chiropractic to gain his Doctorate in Chiropractic. Students at chiropractic college must spend a minimum of at least 4,200 hours with their teacher, and a minimum of 1,000 hours of fully supervised clinical training including physical therapy and cold laser therapy with an instructor as they learn the appropriate diagnosis and treatment techniques to help heal your body and restore it to its natural, fully functioning state.
Dr Strauss then went on to study Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine along with clinical nutrition. He has a Master Degree in Acupuncture from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Australia.
