|What is Chiropractic?
- Chiropractic is a health care 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 and function of the body and how that relationship affects the
preservation and restoration of health. In addition, doctors of chiropractic
recognize the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with other
health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient.
- Chiropractors provide conservative management of neuromuscular disorders
and related functional manifestations including, but not limited to back pain, neck
pain and headaches.
- Chiropractors are expert providers of spinal and other therapeutic
manipulation/adjustments. They also utilize a variety of manual, mechanical and
electrical therapeutic modalities.
- Chiropractors provide patient evaluation and instructions regarding disease
prevention and health promotion through proper nutrition, exercise and lifestyle
modification among others. The range of diagnostic and therapeutic services
offered by chiropractic is dynamic and will be modified by education, research,
technological change and society's evolving health care needs.
- Chiropractic diagnostic and therapeutic goals are achieved safely, quickly and
economically to promote patient health and independence.
- Chiropractors offer accessible and appropriate care to all populations groups.
