1_1What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a health care profession which specializes in diagnosing and treating mechanical disorders of the spine and musculoskeletal system with the intention of affecting the nervous system and improving health.  The spine is an important structural system that supports the body.  It houses the spinal cord which makes up the central nervous system.  The spine can be injured due to i) bad posture, ii) repetitive wear and tear, iii) poor bone nutrition, iv) degeneration, and v) previous traumas.  Doctors of Chiropractic find out the cause of the spinal injury and use manual spinal manipulation called Adjustment to restore the function and treat the injured spine, hence improving the nervous system.
