Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy of the spine and nervous system.The science shows that if the nerves of the nervous system aren’t functioning correctly the body will suffer and break down.
The philosophy is simply that the human body is a self-healing organism that, when the nervous system has no interference, will always heal itself.
The art refers to the adjustment, a force that is administered with the hands and is the main crux of any Chiropractic clinic.
When all 3 of the factors come together what you get is a person that has a keen insight into what true health really is and the means to help people stay as healthy as possible throughout their entire life.
Since the body can heal itself if there is no interference in the nervous system, and since vertebrae that are subluxated (misaligned) can cause interference, it is a simple logical conclusion that putting the vertebrae back into place and taking the interference away will help the nerves and allow the body to heal itself.
That, in a nutshell, is Chiropractic.
