Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts that emphasizes the recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
Chiropractors do not promote drugs or surgery unless a more serious pathology exists then a medical doctor would be more beneficial to the patient.
The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily of the spine) and function (primarily the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.
In addition, Doctors of Chiropractic recognize and have the responsibility to work with other health care providers when in the best interest of the patient.
Chiropractic is concerned with the preservation and restoration of health, and focuses most on the subluxation. A subluxation is a complex of functional and/or structural and/or pathological articular changes that compromise neural integrity and may influence organ system function and general health. There are different types of chiropractors that practice
different types of chiropractic.
