Chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body.
It's based on the idea tht the body is self-sustaining and self-healing .The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast netowrk of nerves that make up the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak the overall performance of the human body is lacking.
In the Chiropractic world, drugs and medicine are not utilized as a form of treatment. they can viewed as band-aids to treat symptoms rather than going to the source and treating the real problem.
Treating neck and back pain is a small piece of what the profession really is capabl of handling. Chiropractors not only treat soft tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain but are largely called to deal with more significant issues such as fibromyalgia, allergies insomnia, headaches and more.
