history of chiropractic careBartlett Joshua Palmer, also known as BJ Palmer, was the son of the influential founder of chiropractic, Daniel David, or DD Palmer.  Following in his father’s footsteps, BJ Palmer also spent most of his life studying and promoting chiropractic and became known as the developer of chiropractic care.  Born in 1881, BJ Palmer devoted his life to bringing awareness to the benefits of chiropractic care for overall health.  He and his wife Mabel both worked as chiropractors and taught as instructors at Palmer College.  BJ Palmer is known for his “big idea” of chiropractic care that helps people realize that chiropractic care is for more than just headaches or back pain.  Today, Charlotte chiropractor Dr. Grant Lisetor practices neurologically-based chiropractic care based on BJ Palmer’s “big idea” that chiropractic care is not limited to alleviating back pain but is beneficial for one’s overall health and wellness.

What Is the “Big Idea”?

A popular quote from BJ Palmer talks about how small instances such as a slip and fall on the ice or a fall from a ladder can be a small thing that leads to a subluxation of the spine, which is another small thing. This subluxation can put pressure on nerves, again, seeming like a small thing, yet this subluxation can lead to disease of the body, which is a big thing.  He also states that a chiropractor may just be one man who performs an adjustment to correct a subluxation, a small thing in this world.  But when that adjustment leads to major health improvements, that is a big thing for humankind.  If you think about how correcting one man’s health can be multiplied by thousands and how ultimately the health of a whole city can be improved through chiropractic care, then chiropractic care may be one of the biggest ideas that man has ever known.  This was BJ Palmer’s theory and what led him to devote his life to raising awareness of chiropractic care and its impact on the health of the human body.

The Benefits of Neurologically-Based Chiropractic Care

Dr. Grant Lisetor of Greater Life Chiropractic has seen for himself the many lives that have been changed by neurologically-based chiropractic care and the “big idea” that chiropractic care is for more than just back or neck pain.  Subluxations can lead to nerve interference that will cause dysfunction within the body.  Subluxations are often found to be the root cause of many health concerns, such as digestion issues like IBS, fatigue and sleeplessness, infertility, as well as a long list of other health issues.  Through neurologically-based chiropractic care which focuses on improving spinal health through gentle adjustments, Charlotte chiropractor Dr. Lisetor can restore proper nerve function to improve the flow and function of the body to prevent illness and disease.  Dr. Lisetor is committed to implementing BJ Palmer’s “big idea” to make the world a better place full of men and women who can function optimally and experience high levels of health so that they can leave Greater Life Chiropractic feeling happier, healthier, and better than they ever have before.
