What is Chiropractic?



Chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is lacking. Your nervous system's purpose is to coordinate and regulate all the other systems of your body as well as help you adapt to your environment.

Chiropractors are concerned with aiding the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or medicine. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as band-aids to treat symptoms rather than treating the problem directly.

While it's often perceived that the chiropractor is solely here to treat back and neck pain, this is simply a small part of what chiropractors really do. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but are largely called on to deal with other health issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches and many more.
