What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a science and an art. In Greek, it is translated to hand and practice - or as we say "Done By Hand".
The effects of chiropractic and the science of the technique has been studied since 1895. It is a non-invasive (meaning no surgery required) technique that is performed to remove disturbances from our bodies nervous and musculoskeletal system. Many people believe that chiropractic is done only to spines, but that is not the case. Every joint in the body can be "adjusted" or "manipulated". Sometimes these adjustments are accompanied by a popping sound which can be a bit unnerving to some. This is not the sound of the bones being rubbed against one another, but simply the sound of nitrogen gas being released from the joint space. You have probably experienced this already in your life. If you have ever felt like there is a bubble in your knuckle and your move it and it "pops" - that's nitrogen gas being expelled from the joint space, thus relieving the pressure that was being built up.
Chiropractic is a natural way to health. Doctors of Chiropractic do not utilized drugs or medications to treat their patients. Our intension is to fix the problem, not mask it with medications.
