What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system, the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used to treat neuro-musculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, joint pain in the arms and legs, and headaches. In Chiropractic, disorders of the nerves are the cause of illness. Since the brain, spinal cord, and all nerves control every function of the body, removing nerve inference by repositioning the spine is key to proper function of the body.

Doctors of Chiropractic
Chiropractors (also known as Chiropractic Physicians) utilize a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis, and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle counseling.
