CHIROPRACTIC STATEMENT OF PHILOSOPHY
• Chiropractic is a philosophy, art and science using “natural” or non-invasive methods of correctingspinal misalignments or “subluxations”. Subluxations are the result of poor spinal position or abnormal joint function, which impairs neurological function. Neurological dysfunction can create disharmony in the body. Doctors of Chiropractic work with the body’s natural recuperative abilities to restore proper function and maintain health without the use of drugs or surgery.
