What is Chiropractic?

There's nothing mysterious about chiropractic. It's a natural method of health care that focuses on treating the causes of physical problems, rather than just the symptoms. Chiropractic is based on a simple but powerful premise: With a normally functioning spine and a healthy lifestyle, your body is better able to heal itself. That's because the spinal cord, which is protected by the bones of the spine (vertebrae), is the main pathway of your nervous system. It controls the sensation of touch, muscle movement, and all function throughout your body.
