We provide on-site rehab that takes a structural-focused approach rather than a functional one. A structural method works on creating strength and flexibility in the spine and structure of the body, which yields better results.

If you would like to feel your best and get back to doing all the things in life you love, we want to help you. Call Element Chiropractic Wellness today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jennifer Zhu.

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 Element Chiropractic Wellness, Dr. Jennifer Zhu primarily uses the Gonstead technique to adjust her patients with precision, and Chiropractic BioPhysics® for specific rehab. Although each technique has decades of research demonstrating reliability, this unique combination of the two have proven to be gentle and customized for each patients personal needs.
