According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Chiropractic is a health profession, which deals with the diagnosis, care and prevention of alterations of the musculoskeletal system and the effects that these disorders produce on the function of the nervous system and general health.
Chiropractors generally work on the spinal column to achieve correct alignment, thus affecting the functioning of the nervous system and consequently the health of the entire body.
Therefore, the Chiropractor deals with the detection, analysis and correction of vertebral and joint blockage that interrupt the function of the tissues or organs that the nerves control. This interference is called vertebral subluxation. With the help of our hands, chiropractors correct these vertebral subluxations through specific vertebral manual adjustment.
Chiropractic places special emphasis on the body’s inherent healing capacity and the predominance of the nervous system in relation to other systems in terms of controlling the general balance of the human body or homeostasis.
