What is Chiropractic?

 

The word “chiropractic” comes from ancient Greek and means “done by hand.”

 

Adjustmenst of the joints of the body has been used in the healing arts for many centuries and is at the heart of modern chiropractic care.

 

Chiropractors are specialists in manual adjustment of the vertebrae of the spine and other joints of the body.

 

Adjustments help restore normal functioning to the joints and supporting muscles, ligaments and nerves – so you can live optimally as quickly as possible.
