About Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is centered on the role of the spine and central nervous system (CNS) in promoting good health and utilizing the natural power of the body to heal itself.  Chiropractors focus on the relationship between the structure of the spine and CNS function, and importantly how the relationship affects a patient’s health.

Chiropractors are trained to identify the cause of health issues which are caused by misalignments of the vertebrae (small bones that form the spine).  These misalignments often disrupt neurological communications between the brain and the rest of the body leading to health problems.

Chiropractors gently adjust the position of the vertebrae in the spine in order to correct misalignments, and reduce, or eliminate changes in the CNS allowing a patient’s body to adapt and heal itself effectively.


Chiropractic care can be traced as far back as 2700 B.C. as writings from China and ancient Greece mention spinal manipulation to ease lower back pain.  Hippocrates, the Greek physician who lived from 460 B.C. to 357 B.C. also published texts discussing the importance of chiropractic care.  He stated; “Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases”.

The practice of spinal manipulation began to gain momentum in the United States late in the nineteenth century when in 1895 Daniel David Palmer founded the chiropractic profession in Iowa.  More information on Daniel Palmer can be found on Wikipidea
.  Since Palmers initial conception of chiropractic, doctors of chiropractic have continued to gain professional recognition in all fifty states.  Chiropractic care is now respected all over the world and continued research throughout the twentieth century has produced very influential results which have molded the perception of chiropractic care to what it is today.

Today doctors of chiropractic are considered experts in the field of non-invasive care and are able to treat a variety of painful conditions.


Boege Chiropractic is committed to providing our patients with up-to-date and accurate information regarding our chiropractic care.  A list of  frequently asked questions (FAQ’s) regarding our chiropractic care can be found below:
  • How are conditions treated?
    • If misalignments of spinal vertebra are causing pain or nerve pressure, gentle, painless spinal adjustments are given to fix the cause of the problem.  If there is muscle spasm anywhere, physiotherapy such as stim machines or ultrasound are also often used to reduce pain
  • Does it hurt? 
    • NO. It is only as painful as when you move the affected area by yourself
  • How many visits are necessary till you feel better?  
    • This depends on the condition. Some may only need a few visits, more serious conditions can take a bit more as you begin to feel better
  • How much does it cost?
    • If you have insurance coverage you will pay the co-pay. If you don't have insurance, visits will generally cost no more than $40
