What Is Chiropractic?


If you’ve never been to a chiropractor before, you may be wondering:

‘What is chiropractic?’

From the early age of life our bodies experience stress and strain from time to time. This can be caused by many offending agents. The most common offending agents that cause the human body to malfunction and result in patients seeking chiropractic care are


  • poor posture
  • knocks
  • car accidents.
  • accidents
  • falls
  • jars
  • slips
  • jerks
  • jolts


The birth process can even be a major cause of subluxation. Stress, whether it be physical, emotional or chemical, is one of the most common causes of spinal subluxation.
