According to the International Chiropractors Association:
"Chiropractic is a conservative and natural healing art and science that concentrates on keeping people well. Doctors of chiropractic attempt to get to the root cause of a health problem, rather than just treat the symptoms. They seek to maximize the natural strengths of the body and its capacity to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The primary focus of chiropractic is detection, reduction and correction of spinal misalignments and nervous systems dysfunction."
Since its beginning, chiropractic has been based on the scientific fact that the nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ and system in your body. While the brain is protected by the skull, the spinal cord is more vulnerable, covered by 24 moving vertebrae. When these bones lose their normal motion or position, they can irritate the nervous system. This disrupts the function of the tissues or organs that these nerves control.

Chiropractic's primary treatment approach is the use of manual manipulation. Chiropractors use these precise, controlled manipulations (or adjustments) to resolve spinal misalignments and to treat other joint structures of the body. When spinal function is improved, nervous system function and health can improve, too. After years of training, chiropractic doctors become experts at using just the right amount of force in the right direction. This may require either a quick movement or a slow and constant pressure.

Chiropractic treatment has both local and whole-body effects via its input to the nervous system. This input, through chiropractic adjustments, has profound health benefits for the spine, the nervous system and the body's overall health and well-being.
