Chiropractic is a healing discipline firmly grounded in science, philosophy, and art. Although its main focus is the relationship between the spine and the nervous system that runs through it, chiropractic is concerned with the care of the entire body. Chiropractors use various diagnostic methods, including x-rays, orthopedic tests, palpation and other neurological testing to discover the state of your health and body function. We pay particular attention to your spine, musculoskeletal and nervous systems, as these systems can influence your overall health.
Chiropractic is the third largest health care profession in the western hemisphere. Chiropractic emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine and skeletal structures) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system, muscles and ligaments) and how that relationship affects the health and wellness of the patient. In addition, chiropractors recognize the value involving the patient in their renewal of optimal health and responsibility of working in cooperation with other healthcare providers in the best interests of the patient.
