Chiropractic is a health care discipline and profession that emphasizes diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the hypothesis that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system. When there is any type of nerve interference, dysfunction occurs. Chiropractic is a healing art which is based upon a normally functioning nervous system to maintain wellness. Modern chiropractic is not simply about putting bones back into place. Chiropractors adjust and mobilize the bones of the body to restore proper joint and spinal mechanics.
