“Chiropractic is a health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health.

Chiropractic means “done by hand”. It is a natural alternative, hands-on, drug-free, surgery-free approach to health. Chiropractic has a very long history dating back to 1895 when the first official adjustment was given. Since its inception, Chiropractic has risen to become the third most used primary health care profession in the world after medicine and dentistry. Chiropractic works on the premise that good health is dependent on a normally functioning spine and nervous system.

What truly differentiates doctors of Chiropractic from any other healthcare professionals is the fact that Chiropractors are the only health professionals trained in the detection, location, and correction of the vertebral subluxation complex through Chiropractic care. The word “subluxation” comes from the Latin words meaning “somewhat or slight” (sub) and “to dislocate” (luxate). So the term ‘vertebral subluxation’ literally means a slight misalignment of the bones in the spine. When a subluxation occurs, a Chiropractor corrects the misaligned bone and allows it to return to its proper position.
