What does a chiropractor do ?

chiropractor and patient

A chiropractor works in the largest drug-free health care profession in the world.

Chiropractic is the health care discipline which emphasises the inherent, recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.

The practice of chiropractic is based upon the scientific fact that your nervous system runs and controls every cell, tissue, organ, system and function of your body.

Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.

Subluxations, or misalignments, of the spinal structures (cranium, 24 vertebra & pelvic bones) and the nervous system may  cause malfunctions of the nerves and organs and therefore sickness and disease. Extremities have a fundamental effect on the spinal structures and nervous system and therefore may be a cause of spinal subluxations.

Internationally recognised New Zealand research chiropractor Dr Heidi Haavik’s recent research highlights the power of the chiropractic adjustment improving the wellbeing of the patient. She stated that her research work “has been instrumental in building the base of scientific evidence demonstrating the efficacy of chiropractic care in improving people’s health and wellbeing”.

Chiropractors are recognised as being the specialists in the science, art and philosophy of detecting and correcting subluxations, thus optimising one's health.
