The word “Chiropractic” means “with hands only”, and as implied by the name it is a profession that uses conservative therapy to treat nerves, muscles and joints instead of the use of medication and/or surgery.
Chiropractors take an integrated and holistic approach to the health needs of their patients. They provide care and support by reducing pain and disability and by restoring normal function to people with neuro-musculoskeletal disorders.
Chiropractors provide care for patients of all ages, who present with a range of acute and chronic conditions. As well as advice about exercise and lifestyle, chiropractors often provide support for pain management, sports injuries and active rehabilitation.
