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.
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 ACC definition, Association of Chiropractic Colleges, 1996).
WHAT MAKES CHIROPRACTIC SO DIFFERENT?
The focus of traditional health care is on germs and blood. Chiropractic produces results by helping your nervous system work the way it should. An emphasis on blood overlooks the role of the nervous system. The nervous system is the master controller in your body. It controls every cell, tissue and organ.
