Holistic Treatment

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body can regulate and heal itself. All the functions of the body are controlled via the nervous system which consists of the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. 

Every muscle, joint and organ relies on nerves from the brain to control their function.

Various physical, emotional and chemical stressors in our lives can disrupt the ability of our nervous system to perform optimally. Hence affecting our body’s ability to regulate and heal itself.

Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy of locating and correcting these problematic areas in the nervous system.
