How Can Chiropractic Care Help You?

Our office works directly with automobile insurance companies and accepts letters of protection (LOP) from attorneys in treating automobile accident victims.
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.
At Greenville Spine and Joint Clinic our chiropractic team is ready to meet with you to discuss your needs. We will help to design a program that is right for you. We look forward to meeting you.
I came to Dr. Reinboldt after a car accident and highly recommend him! In the beginning, I let him know that I was a little fearful of the chiropractic method. He was careful to make sure I was at ease with each visit and I soon began to enjoy the adjustments. The ladies in the office were always professional, kind, and willing to help me in any way they could. Overall a very good experience and would use Dr. Reinboldt again if ever needed!
