What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health care discipline, which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the nervous system) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.

In addition, Doctors of Chiropractic recognize the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient.


The purpose of chiropractic is to optimize health.


The body’s innate recuperative power is affected by and integrated through the nervous system.


The practice of chiropractic includes:

  • Establishing a diagnosis
  • Facilitating neurological and biochemical integrity through appropriate chiropractic case management
  • Promoting health
