What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic is a health care discipline, which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the nervous system) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. In addition, Doctors of Chiropractic recognize the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient.
The purpose of chiropractic is to optimize health.
The body’s innate recuperative power is affected by and integrated through the nervous system.
The practice of chiropractic includes:
- Establishing a diagnosis
- facilitating neurological and biomechanical integrity through appropriate chiropractic case management; and
- promoting health.
The foundation of chiropractic includes philosophy, science, art, knowledge, and clinical experience.
The chiropractic paradigm directly influences the following:
- health care policy and leadership;
- relationships with other health care providers;
- professional stature;
- public awareness and perceptions;
- patient health through quality care.
