About Chiropractic

What is Chiropractic?

“A health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health. There is an emphasis on manual techniques, including joint adjustment and/or manipulation with a particular focus on subluxations.”

World Health Organization, Guidelines on Chiropractic, 2005

Chiropractors specialise in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions related to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves, with particular attention to the spine.

For centuries, patients with a variety of conditions have been been treated with such a ‘hands-on’, natural approach. Since 1895 Chiropractic has developed as a formal system for such diagnosis and treatment. Nowadays, Chiropractic is an established primary-care health profession taught as a 5-year university degree and regulated by governing bodies and/or professional associations.

As the research in recent years has improved, Chiropractic has increasingly become recognised by national and international institutions as an effective manner to treat neck pain, back pain, headaches and a range of other musculoskeletal problems.
