Chiropractic is a health care discipline based on the scientific premise that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. “Chiropractic” comes from the Greek word Chiropraktikos, meaning “done by hand.”
The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily but not limited to the spine and pelvis) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.
The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones (vertebrae) of the spine protect the intricate communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. Dysfunction of the spinal joints may cause interference, reducing your bodies abilities to coordinate its functions, adapt to changing requirements and heal itself. Often resulting in pain and a reduction in health and life style. Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy of locating and correcting these problematic areas in the nervous system.
