What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractors highlight the importance of homeostasis and natural healing mechanisms within the human body. Health problems such as back pain, headaches, migraines, neck pain or fatigue are often the symptoms of the interference with the body's own homeostasis.
The role of a Chiropractor is to analyze the spine and correct its dysfunction through spinal adjustments and exercise without the use of drugs or surgery, which improves neurophysiological function and one's overall health. Treatment also includes education, exercises, rehabilitation and dietary changes.
Chiropractic is the largest and most regulated branch of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and third largest, after medicine and dentistry, the healthcare profession in the world.
By addressing structural and biomechanical problems of the musculoskeletal system one can facilitate the proper function of the nervous system which controls all joints, organs and cells of the body. This can help with common complaints which are more likely to be a result of a deeper problem and are usually interconnected.
