What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic involves the study of science, art and philosophy

The science of locating  and adjusting vertebral subluxations

A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment in the spine that interferes with the nervous system. A vertebral subluxation is adjusted so that the body can better heal itself. Sciences are studied which pertain to human biology – especially the intricate relationship between the spinal segments and the nerve system.

The art of locating and correcting the vertebral subluxations

Chiropractic art is the physical expression of its philosophy and involves the means by which doctors of chiropractic locate and correct (adjust) vertebral subluxations.

The philosophy of health that promotes a subluxation-free life

Philosophy considers the fundamental nature of existence, of human beings and their interaction with the environment. The philosophy of chiropractic is most interested in the effect of vertebral subluxation on the body’s innate striving to express and maintain its own health.

What I understood chiropractic to be was to adjust by hand. And I always pictured myself in a setting where if the only tools I would have at hand would be my hands, I would still be able to help people.

Chiropractic changes lives.

Doctors of chiropractic correct vertebral subluxations that interfere with the transmission of information from the brain to all systems of the body, thus having a positive effect on the body’s organs and systems, even down to the cellular level.

Chiropractors gently correct the problem by using a broad range of adjusting methods. By restoring proper nerve flow, the chiropractor helps people enjoy more of their full potential for health and optimal performance.
