What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a science, an art and a philosophy:

Chiropractic is the science of locating vertebral subluxations, misalignments in the spine that interfere with the nervous system, so that the body can heal itself.

This science is grounded in human biology – especially the intricate relationship between the body (spinal vertebrae) and function (coordinated by the nervous system).

Chiropractic is the art of locating and correcting the vertebral subluxations

Chiropractic art is the physical expression of its philosophy and involves the means by which doctors of chiropractic locate and correct (adjust) vertebral subluxations.

Chiropractors gently remove subluxations by using a broad range of adjusting methods to restore proper nerve flow.  In doing so, the chiropractor helps people enjoy more of their full potential for health and optimal performance.

Chiropractic is the philosophy of health that promotes a subluxation-free life.

Philosophy considers the fundamental nature of existence, of human beings and their interaction with the environment. The philosophy of chiropractic is most interested in the effect of vertebral subluxation on the body’s innate intelligence as it strives to express and maintain its own health.

Ultimately, the goal of chiropractic is to improve the life and health of every human being on the planet. Misalignments in the vertebrae of the spinal column can disrupt proper nerve function and lead to decreased performance and health.

Doctors of chiropractic correct vertebral subluxations that interfere with the transmission of information from the brain and nervous system to all of the systems of the body, thus having a positive effect on the body's organs and systems, even down to the cellular level.
