What is Chiropractic
Chiropractic is a primary healthcare discipline that 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 spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health and movement.
In addition, doctors of chiropractic are well educated in nutrition, physical therapy, medical imaging and stress related disorders. Chiropractors enjoy the benefits of working with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient.
Mid-wives, massage therapists and counselors are but a few of the teams that compliment each other so well in furthering patient care.
A chiropractic doctor has a minimum of three years university and four years at the Chiropractic College.
