- Even though chiropractic was discovered as a healing art in the late 1800's, in America, the use of spinal manipulation in the Far and Near East is estimated to be over 7,000 years old. Spinal vertebral therapy and soft tissue mobilization known in the Orient as "Tui NA" is a vital part of "Chung Guo I Hsueh" or Middle Kingdom Healing.
Since all parts of the body to include all 300 trillion cells, are under the direct influence of the nervous system, the spinal column comprised of 24 movable segments plays an integral part in human functioning as it protects the spinal cord which sends large nerve trunks to the organs and structures of the body through small openings between the vertebrae.
Chiropractic physicians and Oriental medical doctors are explicitly trained in the detection and correction of "vertebral subluxations" which impinge or impede vital nerve impulses. Thus spinal mobilization "adjustment" as it is referred to in the west, may play a vital role in the recovery of a patient. Treatment is considered painless and pleasant.
