Most people have heard about chiropractic but very few people understand what chiropractic is.
Chiropractic is about restoring the body's natural ability to heal. Yes, in most cases pain will be decreased or eliminated, but the goal is to remove interference in the nervous system so the brain and the body can communicate optimally. The better the body functions, the healthier it becomes, and the better you feel.
Additional therapies such as electrical stimulation and rehabilitative exercises can help shorten the duration of pain when used in conjunction with chiropractic care.
