Chiropractic is a branch of healing art, which is based upon the understanding that good health depends, in part, upon a properly functioning nervous system.
Chiropractic stresses the idea that the cause of many disease processes begins with the body's inability to adapt to its enviroment. It looks to address these diseases by locating and adjusting a musculoskeletal area of the body which is functioning improperly.
Chiropractors use a standard procedure of examination to diagnose a patient's condition and arrive at a course of treatment. Doctors of chiropractic use the same time-honored methods of consultation, case history, physical examination, laboratory analysis and x-ray examination as any other doctor.
Chiropractic teaches that reducing or eliminating this irritation to spinal nerves can cause your body to operate more efficiently and more comfortably.
Chiropractic also places an emphasis on nutritional and exercise programs, wellness and lifestyle modifications for promoting physical and mental health.
