What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a form of treatment that focuses on the manipulation of the joints and vertebrae of the spine to realign the spinal column and reduce pressure on the spinal cord. This process, known as spinal manipulation, can help improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

Over time, spinal manipulation can help the body heal from injuries, fight off illnesses, avoid chronic conditions and more. Spinal adjustment is usually administered with other therapies like massage. Together, massage and spinal adjustment can help the body function more efficiently, which can help the patient to stay healthy.
