How Can Chiropractic Care Help You?
Many live their lives suffering from pain or prior injuries without seeking care, fearing they've already done everything possible to fix their musculoskeletal ailments. On the contrary, getting help from our chiropractor is one of the best ways to recover from the pain and past injuries naturally, effectively, and with the most minimally invasive procedures available! We provide various services at Keeler Chiropractic that can help provide long-lasting relief.
The History of Chiropractic Care
The word "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?
Chiropractic doctors go through a minimum of four years of schooling at a chiropractic college, generally preceded by an undergraduate degree in the basic sciences or several years of experience in a prior relevant health care field.
Students of chiropractic care 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 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.

I've been to many chiropractors. I've had MRI's and seen doctors. I've suffered for 2 years with a shoulder and neck issue. Jay did more for me in ONE visit than all other things I've done together. It's been 3 weeks and I'm 95% better. I am very grateful to have Dr Jay in Russell KS! Thanks again!
