Deloe Chiropractic Center
Thank you for visiting the website of DeLoe Chiropractic Center located at 600 Kreag Road #4 in Pittsford, NY. We understand how important it is to choose a chiropractor that is right for you. It is our belief that educating our patients is a very important part of the success we see in our office.
Most people think that a chiropractor pops, cracks or snaps back pain away, but there is so much more to the profession. In 1895 the first chiropractic adjustment was delivered to a man that had lost the ability to hear in one of his ears. Following an adjustment to his spine the man explained that his hearing had been restored. While this is not the most common result of chiropractic care it is an example of one of the many conditions chiropractic care has helped over the last century.
Chiropractor Pittsford NY
Chiropractic is a type of health care that works with the nervous system as well as the musculoskeletal system. Doctors of chiropractic are trained to diagnose and treat injuries and disorders that involve the nervous system, muscles and bones. Chiropractors in Pittsford work directly with the spine to remove any interference that may be preventing the body to heal itself and to restore natural processes within the body. Like all other areas in health care, new patients will undergo a consultation that involves reviewing past and current health conditions, medications and surgeries as well as a physical examination. Once this process is completed our team will use all of the information to establish a diagnosis and create an individualized treatment plan.
Chiropractic is not limited to people suffering from back pain in Pittsford. There are a myriad of different conditions that chiropractic care has been shown to be helpful for. At DeLoe Chiropractic Center, we have a large number of patients that see us as a part of their wellness lifestyle. Receiving regular chiropractic adjustments can help the body function at its optimal potential.
Chiropractic is just as much about preventing injury and disease as it is about relieving pain from existing conditions.

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?
