What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is the science of locating problems in the spine, the art of reducing their impact to the nervous system, and a philosophy of natural health care based on your inborn potential to be healthy.
Founded in 1895, Chiropractic has turned into the 3rd largest health profession in the world, and the fastest growing!


When under the proper control of your nervous system, all the cells, tissue, and organs of your body are designed to return your body to optimal health, and resist disease. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and correct any interferences to your controlling nervous system (called subluxations).

Common interferences to the nervous system occur between some of the twenty four moving bones of the spinal column, the associated ribs, and potentially any of the joints in your body. A loss of normal motion or position of these joints can irritate or impair the function of the nervous system. The number one nutrient for your nervous system is movement, therefore with improved spinal function people often report improved pain and system function. Your chiropractor's aim is to help remove interference that may be impairing normal health (using a specific spinal adjustment).


Through specialist, drug-free spinal healthcare, expertise in the diagnosis and management of spinal health, and the provision of expert wellness advice, chiropractors can play an important part in helping all people to lead and maintain healthy lives.
