Firstly, the term “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek word “Chiropraktikos”, meaning “done by hand”. Chiropractic is a primary health care profession based on the scientific premise that the body is a self-healing and self-regulating organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain and transmitted via the spinal cord and nerves throughout the body.

Our skull protects the delicate structures of the brain and the movable bones of the spine protect the intricate communication pathways of the spinal cord and exiting nerve roots. If these nervous system pathways become impaired, malfunction of the tissue and organ function throughout the body can result, leading to dis-ease and disease.

The art of Chiropractic focuses on this relationship between structure (primarily the spine and pelvis) and function (nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. This, along with close attention to exercise, nutrition and healthy lifestyle practices will allow for the best environment for a happy healthy body.
