Chiropractic

Chiropractic is an allied health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders associated with the musculoskeletal system, and the effect these disorders have on the general wellbeing of the individual. The philosophy of chiropractic is based on the fact that the body is self-regulating organism that has the inherent capability to heal itself without drugs or surgery.
