The word chiropractic comes from ancient Greek and means "done by hand." Manipulation of the joints of the body has been used in the healing arts for many centuries and is at the heart of modern chiropractic care.
Chiropractic is a primary healthcare profession founded in 1895 in the United States and now practised and recognised in over 100 countries worldwide. It is a hands-on healthcare discipline that focuses on the musculoskeletal system with an emphasis on manual treatments, including spinal manipulation.
Chiropractic is a non-invasive, safe, and effective form of treatment for back and neck pain. Chiropractors are trained to assess disorders related to the spine, nervous system, and joints of the extremities and provide a diagnosis and treatment of these disorders.
