Chiropractor Orange CT

Welcome to Balanced Health Family Chiropractic located in Orange. Chiropractic is one of the most amazing healthcare professions, but very few people understand what the health benefits are all about. This article is here to help you gain a basic understanding of how your Orange chiropractor can help you and your family.

Chiropractic care focuses on detecting a condition in the spine called “subluxation”. A subluxation is when the bones of your spine become stuck, losing their normal motion and alignment. When this condition exists in the spine, it causes the spine to degenerate faster and significantly reduces the function of the nervous system. If the brain and the body can’t communicate, your health starts to breakdown.

Chiropractic removes subluxations using various techniques called adjustments. Gentle adjustments to the spine not only restore proper motion and alignment but most importantly improves communication to the brain and the body which allows your body to function optimally. We promote health and healing by teaching patients how to fuel their nervous systems with what it needs:

  • Good Nutrition
  • Hydration
  • Exercise
  • A Positive Environment Your Body Can Thrive In

Our mission at Balanced Health Family Chiropractic is to adjust, educate, and empower families in our community toward optimal health and wellness. We are a family-based chiropractic practice, aimed at providing natural healing for you and your family. Dr. Durso specializes in pediatric and prenatal care.

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.

Training of a Chiropractor

Orange chiropractors 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.
