What Is Chiropractic?

The word chiropractic is derived from the Greek language and means 'to perform with the hands'. Chiropractors use their hands to manipulate and manually treat joints and muscles of the body.


Chiropractic is a primary health care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and further management of specific neuromusculoskeletal conditions. Chiropractors are highly trained to treat conditions that involve joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves of the body.


Chiropractic offers a hands-on approach to health and well being. This includes specific techniques such as spinal manipulation to restore joint function in the back and extremities. Chiropractors also use a variety of other techniques such as deep tissue massage, muscle energy techniques, dry needling (a form of medical acupuncture) and advice on posture and lifestyle.
