What is Chiropractic?

Woman receiving Chiropractic careThe principle behind chiropractic is very simple. The spine is the part of the body that protects the spinal chord / central nervous system. It is this central nervous system that controls all of the body’s functions. If there are any restrictions in the spine it can affect its function which can manifest itself in many ways such as pain, discomfort or reduced mobility. These restrictions may disrupt the central nervous systems ability to function correctly which can cause more pain and health issues throughout the body.

Adjusting the spine removes these restrictions reducing pain and discomfort and increasing mobility and letting the body’s functions return to normal.

By freeing the central nervous system, chiropractic works with the body’s natural ability to heal itself without using pills, drugs or surgery.

  • Chiropractic does not heal you!
  • The pain killers and pills do not heal you (they mask the symptoms).
  • Only YOU can heal you.
  • Chiropractic allows your body to function normally so it can do what it is supposed to do!


Chiropractors have always maintained that people should not wait until symptoms appear before seeking chiropractic care to address their aches and pains. We believe that keeping the body free of stiffness or nerve interference is a good way to help the body function better, with better health as a result.
