To me Steven J. Pollack, D.C. represents the vision and integrity, which form the foundation of Chiropractic health care. Over the past 20 years I've enjoyed the opportunity to be Steve's colleague and more importantly, his friend. Together we have endured and adapted to the dramatic changes to the "business" of health care. Despite these erratic changes "Dr. Steve" has never once lost his focus on the science, art, and philosophy of Chiropractic. One minute around him and you will know he has never been "in" Chiropractic. Chiropractic lives in him! --Paul Basile, D.C.

Daniel David Palmer, the father of chiropractic medicine, sets out the principles of manually correcting disorders of the bones as a panacea for various ills of the human biology. When he founded his practice of chiropractic medicine in the 1890s, Palmer claimed to have received inspiration from a spiritual or divine force. Although Palmer received criticism for frequently voicing this origin, he remained steadfast in his account; for the author, there could be no successful science without religion, and vice versa. The adjustment of the osseous (bone) tissue considered by Palmer to hold spiritual, religious and scientific importance as a remedy. Chiropractic procedures surround manipulation of the musculo-skeletal system, with particular emphasis given to the spine. Such adjustments of the bones are performed with the intent of improving posture, reducing inflammation of tissue, and promoting proper function of the nervous system.
