About Chiropractic

Chiropractic health-care specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves of the body, particularly those of the spine

Treatment consists of a wide range of manipulative techniques designed to improve the function of the joints, relieving pain and muscle spasm.

These techniques do not involve the use of any drugs or surgery.

Although chiropractic is used most frequently to relieve lower back pain, it is effective for a number of conditions; migraine headaches; neck and shoulder pain; and others.

Chiropractors receive an education that emphasizes neuromuscular diagnosis and treatment. Study is concentrated on three main areas; training in the biological and health sciences (anatomy, physiology, histology, biochemistry, clinical and radiological diagnosis); specialized training in the chiropractic discipline (theoretical studies, practice, diagnosis and applications); and extensive clinical training.

Chiropractic looks to address health problems not by the use of drugs and chemicals, but by locating and adjusting a musculoskeletal area of the body which is functioning improperly. Many research studies have shown the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments. They are significantly safer than taking medications or having spine surgery.

"Chiropractic" comes from the Greek word chiropraktikos, meaning 'effective treatment by hand.'
