Some of our
history and important information to know about this website|
It began in 1996, when chiropractic student Michael Dorausch (currently a practicing Los Angeles Chiropractor), had a vision for creating an online community where chiropractors could gather and share information with one another.
not alone. Many others; including those in practice, students attending
chiropractic schools, and even chiropractic patients, wanted to spread the word
of chiropractic on the World Wide Web.
Using various tools of technology,
together we would help enable a chiropractic practice to be more effective and efficient and would allow
chiropractors, staff, students, and others, a greater opportunity to understand
just what the essence of a chiropractic lifestyle was all about. Today, Planet Chiropractic
continues serving chiropractors, as well as people like you, all across the globe.
