Chiropractors are extensively educated in the prevention, assessment, diagnosis and management of the muscles, skeletal and nervous system. Chiropractic is an extremely safe, hands-on health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. 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. Chiropractors are also trained to provide nutritional counselling, as well as recommend injury prevention strategies.
