Chiropractic is the third largest primary health care profession after medicine and dentistry, in the world and brings relief to millions of people who would otherwise suffer prolonged pain or illness.

Chiropractic specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions that are due to problems with the joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves of the body, particularly those of the spine. The treatment consists of a wide range of manipulative techniques designed to improve the function of the joints, relieving pain and muscle spasm. Apart from high levels of diagnostic skills, chiropractors are also trained how to take and analyse x-rays, when appropriate for use in establishing a diagnosis.

The word chiropractic is derived from the Greek meaning “to perform by hand”. The foundations of chiropractic philosophy are based on the intimate relationship of the spinal column to the nervous system, as well as the role of the spinal column in biomechanics and movement.
