Chiropractic

What is chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a healing discipline firmly grounded in science. Although its main focus is the relationship between the skeleton (particularly the spine) and the nervous system that runs through it, chiropractic is concerned with the care of the entire body. Chiropractors use various diagnostic methods to discover the state of your health, paying particular attention to your spine and bone structure. Spinal manual adjustments are their primary methods of helping your body heal itself.

The word chiropractic comes from a combination of the Greek words "chiro" and "praktikis", meaning "done by hand". "Treatment by hand" was an accepted form of therapy in ancient Greece. Hippocrates, who is regarded as the founder of medical inquiry, made the first recorded references to spinal manipulation. 1995 marked the 100th anniversary of the evolution of modern chiropractic. In recognition of this milestone, centennial celebrations were held across Canada and throughout the world. Canada Post issued a commemorative stamp in recognition of the centennial of the profession, and to honour its Canadian Found, Dr. Daniel David Palmer.

Why Chiropractic?

The Chiropractic profession is often poorly misunderstood, and many people have no experience with Chiropractors. Chiropractic is founded upon the premise that when spinal bones are functioning in normal motion and position, the central nervous system can deliver its vital information for the proper function of the body's tissues, organs and systems. With this philosophy, Chiropractic is not simply treatment for pain!

Chiropractors are trained to detect abnormal functions of the spine and related joints and restore normal function.

Chiropractic education and statutory regulation

Chiropractors are very well trained health care professionals. On average five years full-time university studies are required. The studies include anatomy, neurology, physiology, pathology, biochemistry, behavioural sciences, diagnosis and manipulative skills to mention but a few. In the UK all practicing chiropractors are required by law to register with the General Chiropractic Council (GCC).

Today chiropractors are the world's most highly trained and skilled specialists in manipulative therapy. (Spinal adjusting)
