Behind the words


What is Chiropractic? - Definition

Chiropractors provide care for patients of all ages, who present with a range of acute and chronic conditions. As well as advice about self-help, exercise, diet and lifestyle, chiropractors often provide support for pain management, sports injuries and active rehabilitation.


Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. The nervous system and it’s protective structures, the skull and spine are important in the regulation of many of these self corrective functions.


Chiropractors refer to dysfunction within the spine as the Vertebral Sublxation Complex.


When a chiropractor uses the words vertebral subluxation, they are referring to changes in the boney parts of the joint surfaces (articulator components), ligaments, the muscles that control joint and the neural (nerve system) changes that occur with hat particular dysfunction.


Chiropractic is the science of locating these subluxations, the art of reducing their impact to the nervous system, and the philosophy of natural health care based on your inborn potential to be healthy.
