Chiropractic is a safe, scientific and effective therapy for conditions of the spine
Chiropractic is a natural way of creating optimum spinal health, so that the nervous system can do its job.
A Chiropractor uses their hands to locate joints which are not moving properly and uses a quick impulse to free the joint so that it moves once more. This is called an adjustment. The muscles can then start to work normally and the spine will gradually return to its optimal working condition.
On your first visit, the chiropractor will ask about your problem, your medical and health history. Then they will carry out a detailed examination of the spine and nervous system (which may include X-rays). At the second visit, the cause of your problem will be explained in detail and on your agreement, treatment will commence.
Chiropractic originally developed as a holistic discipline and practices wellness. Wellness Paradigm is different from Allopathic paradigm which is practiced by traditional medicine.
"The goal of allopathic research and intervention is to reduce symptomes or treat disease. Allopathic science and scope of practice does not include the concept of global homeostasis and health. Allopathic scientists and allopathic practitioners consider a reduction in symptomes a successful result regardless of wether or not the health and homeostatic status of the patient has been improved. Allopathy does not even attempt to measure this variable.
The goal of wellness research and intervention is to drive the human ecosystem toward homeostasis and health. Wellness science and scope of practice does not include the concept of symptome and disease treatment or therapy. Wellness scientists and practitioners consider an improvement in human ecosystem homeostasis and health a successful result regardless of wether or not the symptom status of the patient has improved. Wellness does not even attempt to measure the variable".

Chiropractic research is not funded by the pharmaceutical industry therefore is not biased towards drugs and surgery. Chiropractic is aimed at facilitating and restoring the human natural and inborn ability to heal, which is largely managed by the nervous system of brain, spinal cord and nerves.
