Welcome to Smith Chiropractic and Occupational Medicine located in Breese IL. Chiropractic is one of the most amazing healthcare professions, but very few people understand what it's all about. This article is here to help you gain a basic understanding of how our Breese IL chiropractors can help you and your family.

Smith Chiropractic and Occupational Medicine

Chiropractic care is the practice of using spinal alignment to alleviate a wide variety of physical ailments, including muscle strain, neck pain, chronic back pain, and more. This is accomplished by adjusting the position of the spinal column to its proper shape, providing a non-invasive solution for pain relief.


We are a natural health care provider with a strong medical background and that gives you the advantage of having a quick diagnosis with the option of resolving your problem without medications, that sometimes can have adverse effects. Our treatment is painless and quite effective for low back pain, neck pain, mid-back, and shoulder pain. We also provide treatment for headaches, both quick onset, and long term. We also specialize in joint pain resolution.

Our treatment consists of manipulation of the spine and joints, soft tissue therapy, ultrasound therapy, interferential therapy, and our newest addition, LAT or "Long Axis Traction," for low back and neck nerve pinches due to a malformed or protruding disc. Dr. Smith is also acupuncture certified and specializes in smoking cessation and pain relief with acupuncture. Our new Aspen Laser System is giving us some unbelievable results with neck, back, and joint pain. Please call us today for a no-charge consult to see if laser treatments may help you or a family member.

Dr. Smith also specializes in Department of Transportation health issues with physical examinations for truck and school bus drivers as well as drug and alcohol testing for drivers, school systems, and businesses.

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.
