Chiropractic and how it can Help
Chiropractic comes from the greek ‘Kheir’, meaning hand and ‘Pracktikos’, meaning to practice, therefore the full meaning is ‘to do or practice by hand’.
Chiropractic is a very safe primary contact healthcare profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal adjustment and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation.
Chiropractors are known mostly for working on the spine however nowadays they work with all joints and soft tissues of the body. Chiropractic is not a specific treatment method per se but rather it encompasses a wide range of different manual modalities and techniques with emphasis on spinal joint adjustments. Chiropractic is, therefore, a profession rather than a treatment method.
