Chiropractic believes in the idea that our health depends on a fully functioning nervous system, beginning with the spine as the core, extending through every part of the body. Chiropractors are concerned with the alignment of the spine and how interruptions to this alignment can interfere with the nervous system ability to transmit messages to the brain.

Chiropractors make an assessment on the client, discussing injuries and the relevant history of the individual. If there is anything causing irritation to the spinal nerve then the chiropractor will work this area to remove the irritation and allow the body to move and operate more efficiently.

Chiropractors are able to refer patients for x-rays, massage or physiotherapy as necessary. Chiropractic believes that the body is self-regulating and that a healthy lifestyle can trigger the body's natural potential to be healthy. Chiropractors do not prescribe medication.

During treatment, individual will lay on a special Chiropractic table, in some cases undressed. The practitioner will use gentle manipulation and adjustment to help restore the body to it’s optimum health level. The number of treatments will vary depending on the individual.
