What is Chiropractic?

Nov 23, 2016 by Dennis Lin Topics: chiropractic, spine

Chiropractic is a science, art and philosophy that focus on the relationship between the nervous system and the function (health) of the body.

Chiropractic doctors locate and correct abnormal spinal and joint movement and positions. These misaligned joints cause interference to the musculoskeletal system, as well as the nervous system to the entire body and lead to a wide array of symptoms and conditions. After thorough examination and analysis, chiropractors use carefully controlled and directed pressure to restore proper spinal function and thereby reduce interference to the vital nervous system.┬áThis care is handled without drugs or surgery and allows the body’s to heal itself.

A healthy spine and nervous system, working at its very best, can help anyone at any time in their life; regardless of age, condition, presence or absence of disease, or obvious symptoms. Chiropractors also recognise the importance of lifestyle factors, nutrition, exercise and patient responsibility on overall health.

Chiropractic is not just a ‘treatment’ as such for any particular symptom or disease, but rather a method of helping to ensure optimal joint function and nerve communication and is thus able to effectively assist the body in healing. This safe and conservative approach to relief and wellness makes chiropractic the most popular form of natural health care in the world.
