What Is Chiropractic?

chiropractic_careChiropractic is a health care system which directly concerns itself with the nervous system and it’s relation to the functions of the human body. Interference with the body’s muscular, nervous and skeletal systems impairs many important body functions and lowers resistance to disease. Chiropractors correct vertebral subluxations (vertebrae in the spine which have lost their normal position and are causing pressure on connected tissue, joints, and nerves) which inhibit the body from allowing total health.

Chiropractors are concerned with a patient’s overall well-being and recognize that many factors affect health, including stress, exercise, diet, rest, environment, and heredity. Chiropractic does not use drugs, medicine, or invasive tools and procedures. Chiropractic is the largest, drugless, natural healing profession in the world and is a profession which emphasizes the innate recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.

The key to understanding Chiropractic is to remember that health comes from within, and Chiropractic targets the healing power within your body to create an abundance of vitality and wellness.
