What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a profession which specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions which are due to mechanical dysfunction of the joints and their effects on the nervous system.

How does it work?

Chiropractors use their hands to adjust the joints of your spine and extremities where signs of restriction in movement are found, improving mobility and relieving pain. Your body's own healing processes (which we normally recognize in its ability to heal bruises, cuts and broken bones) will then be able to get on with the task of improving your health. This treatment is known as 'adjustment' or 'manipulation'.

Chiropractors master the adjusting "art" of chiropractic which includes a comprehensive evaluation, a review of health history, and arrival at a clear diagnosis and a recommended specific treatment plan customized for each patient. This includes specific spinal adjustments. Adjustment describes many hundreds of ways and techniques of directed and controlled pressure to restore spinal segments to a more normal position and range of motion, help in increased flexibility, increased immunological function and increased life energy. Chiropractic is truly an art.

Chiropractic philosophy recognizes that the power that created the body can heal the body - as long as there is no interference. The doctor does not heal you; he is a co-facilitator with you for your body to be put in the correct environment to heal itself. The main purpose of the chiropractor is to reduce interference to your inborn, innate healing ability.


The advantages with chiropractic care are that the relief can be instant.  People with joint pains testify to get relief instantly once they go to a chiropractor because when the joint is aligned at a new position, then the pain associated with it also vanishes and that is why the relief is instant.  Chiropractic care has remedies for several Irritating problems like backache, indigestion and neck pain. As a holistic type of this treatment, chiropractic care is generally safer than other treatments because patients do not have to undergo surgery to get results.  As an alternative type of treatment, most doctors suggest that patients try the methods first before resorting to surgery or long-term medicine use.

Given mainly to the spine, a chiropractic adjustment (sometimes referred to as a manipulation) involves using the hands or a device to apply a controlled, sudden force to a joint, moving it beyond its passive range of motion. The goal is to increase the range and quality of motion in the area being treated and to aid in restoring health. Other hands-on therapies such as mobilization (movement of a joint within its usual range of motion) also may be used.
