"...manipulation is safe and effective for patients in the first month of acute low back symptoms..."– The Clinical Practice Guideline, 1994
Chiropractic has been practiced in America for over 100 years, but has an ageless place in the evolution of health care. Hippocrates, the "father of modern medicine," utilized "manipulation" in his treatment techniques. The early Chinese are also said to have included "manipulation" thousands of years ago. The role of chiropractic in our health care system is well-established. Chiropractors are licensed in all 50 states with many accredited chiropractic universities nationwide. There are over 1,500 licensed Chiropractors in Wisconsin.
