Chiropractic is a Natural, non-invasive approach to health care. 

The word “chiropractic” is taken from Greek meaning, “done by hand.” Throughout history, many cultures have used some form of physical manipulation in healing. The history and development of modern chiropractic, in many ways mirrors the advancement of
medical science over the past century. As science advanced, so did understanding of the physiological principles which underlie the effectiveness of chiropractic treatment. Today these principles form the foundation of chiropractic education.

Chiropractors practice a drug-free, manual approach to health care that includes patient assessment, diagnosis and treatment.

In particular, Chiropractors assess patients for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, extremity joints, and their effect on the nervous system. As a result of taking a physical assessment and patient history, chiropractors are able to provide a differential diagnosis for the patient’s presenting condition(s) and develop a comprehensive treatment/management plan. Chiropractors are also trained to recommend therapeutic exercise, to utilize other non-invasive therapies, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
