What Is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic comes from 2 Greek words, which translate to “do by hand”. In essence, it means a health care system based on analysing the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system and carrying out the treatment by hand.
Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession that specialises
in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves of the body, particularly those of the spine.
Chiropractic produces results by helping your nervous system work the way it should. Treatment consists of a wide range of manipulative techniques designed to improve the function of the joints, relieving pain and muscle spasm.
The Chiropractors Act 1994 established the General Chiropractic Council (GCC) as the regulatory body and since 14th June 2001 it has been a criminal offence for anyone to call themselves a chiropractor if they are not registered with the GCC.
It’s a scientific fact that your brain, spinal cord and the rest of your nerves control every aspect of your body. Proper functioning of these structures can help you achieve better health.
The intent of Chiropractic is to restore your body’s ability to regulate and heal itself. Without drugs. Without surgery.
Chiropractic is simple. It’s natural. It honours the wisdom of your body. And it has helped millions enjoy relief and better health for more than a century.
