What is Chiropractic?

As defined by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCAM), chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on the relationship between the body’s structure (primarily of the spine) and its functioning as controlled by the nervous system. Chiropractors use a variety of methods to treat their patients, but rely primarily on corrective chiropractic adjustments to the patient’s spine to optimize the flow of energy through the nervous system.
Bonus fact: the word “chiropractic” is derived from the Greek word cheir (hand) and praxis (practice) which describes a treatment literally administered by hand. Chiropractic is built on the concept of hands-on therapy.
