What is Chiropractic?
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 spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health. Chiropractors recognize the value and responsibility of working in co-operation with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient. There are obviously limitations to any practice and there are times when drugs or surgery may be appropriate.
The perception of Chiropractic is often limited to the treatment of back pain, but as Primary Healthcare Providers we are consulted about a whole range of conditions.
“Chiropractors also place an emphasis on nutrition and exercise, wellness and healthy lifestyle modifications which when correctly applied will improve the health of individuals”
Your local UCA Chiropractor can assess your spinal health and address any concerns that you have and establish an appropriate health care plan.
