Chiropractic is one of the oldest forms of ‘hands-on’ musculoskeletal medicine. The diagnosis and treatment are based on the philosophy that the body operates as a total functional unit with all the body’s systems. This means that your muscles, nerves and joints are working together to maintain normal function and health. The human body is both self-regulating and self-healing, and it is the control of the brain, spinal cord and nerve function that allows this. By detecting structural imbalances and nerve interferences throughout these systems the chiropractors ensure they are treating the cause and not just the symptoms.
