What is Chiropractic?

Nov 22, 2022 | FAQs

The word “chiropractic” originates from the Greek words cheir (meaning ‘hand’) and praktos (meaning ‘doing’); therefore, its literal meaning is “doing by hand.” Chiropractic is a holistic, alternative medicine that focuses on the nervous system. 

We believe that human touch is vital to our nervous system; therefore, we utilize hands-on techniques to detect tension patterns and areas of stored stress throughout the spine and body. From there, we use various adjusting techniques, including manual and gentle, instrument-assisted adjustments using an activator. 

Chiropractic aims to improve your nervous system’s function, positively affecting overall health and well-being. When we release these tension patterns and reduce nerve interference, it brings the body back into its healthy and natural balance.
