What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic (literally translated as “done by hand”) is a science, art and a philosophy. It is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. This is called Homeostasis. All of your body’s functions are controlled by your brain, via your spinal cord, and nerves.

The bones of the spine protect and maintain the communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerves. If any part of the nervous system is impaired, it can cause problems in any of the body’s tissues and organs. Many Chiropractors refer to this as “Spinal Dysfunction” or “Vertebral Subluxation Complex”. Chiropractic is the science of locating these areas in the spine or body, the art of reducing their impact to the nervous system, and our philosophy is that of working with the natural systems built into our bodies.
