Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that is centred on the role of the spine and central nervous system in maintaining good health, and leveraging the recuperative power of the body to heal itself naturally and efficiently. The practice of Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the structure of the spine and function of the body coordinated by the nervous system. How this relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health is the focus of Chiropractic medicine.
Chiropractors identify and correct the cause of health challenges which arise when misalignments of the vertebrae (the 24 small bones that make up the spine) disrupt neurological communications between your brain and the cells, tissues, and organs of the body.
Chiropractors examine the biomechanics, structure and function of the spine, pelvis and feet to assess their effects on the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. They then work to reintroduce proper motion to your spinal segments, pelvis and feet through manual manipulations (spinal adjustments or chiropractic adjustments). In doing so, they allow our central nervous system to function properly which allows proper communication between the brain and body resulting in the starting of the healing process.
