Chiropractic is a health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on the functions of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft tissue manipulation.
(World Federation of Chiropractic, 2001)
By restoring normal function to the musculoskeletal system, chiropractors can play a major part in relieving disorders, and any accompanying pain and discomfort, arising from accidents, stress, lack of exercise, poor posture, illness and the everyday wear and tear that happens to all of us.
Chiropractors take a holistic approach to your health and well-being. This means that they consider your symptoms in the context of your full medical history, your lifestyle and your personal circumstances.
