What is Chiropractic

I like this definition

Pain is a sign that something is wrong. Your brain, your spinal cord and your nerves control how your body works. If structural, chemical, or emotional stress interferes with this control system, the body doesn’t work right. The brain is trying to phone the body, but the fiber-optic network is getting interference.

Muscles contract, locking spinal joints and irritating nerves. Lack of nervous system integrity sets the stage for disease and ill health.

Chiropractors find the malfunctioning area, or subluxation, and apply a thrust to restore normal position and mobility, restoring normal nerve function.

With chiropractic treatment, health returns as nerves start to function normally.

This is the definition from Dorland’s Medical Dictionary

chiropractic (ki″ro-prak´tik) a nonpharmaceutical, nonsurgical system of health care based on the self-healing capacity of the body and the primary importance of the proper function of the nervous system in the maintenance of health; therapy is aimed at removing irritants to the nervous system and restoring proper function. The most common method of treatment is by spinal manipulation and is primarily done for musculoskeletal complaints; other methods include lifestyle modification, nutritional therapy, and physiotherapy.
