A natural approach to healing, chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body.
It's based on the idea that the body is self-healing and self-regulating.
The body is completely controlled by the brain, spinal cord and the network of nerves that connect to every organ, tissue and cell. When this system is not functioning correctly, the body can not perform the way it was designed.
In the chiropractic world, drugs and medicine are not used in the care of a patient. Prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs are usually used to treat symptoms rather than going to the source and correcting the real problem, which is what chiropractic is all about. That being said, supplementation and modifications to your nutrition plan are almost always a part of the bigger picture and can greatly impact your health.
Chiropractic is care that keeps your body functioning correctly and efficiently, allowing it to heal, repair, and strengthen itself. It removes the cause of issues rather than just cover up the effect.
