Chiropractic cares for the spine. When the joints of the spine are in better alignment, painful conditions will tend to improve. Scientific literature has shown that chiropractic care is effective in the management of back pain, neck pain and many forms of headaches.
As the spine improves so also do other areas of health. Over its 109 year history, the profession has recorded anecdotal evidence from millions of satisfied patients documenting its ability to improve a host of symptoms such as hyperactivity, learning disabilities, colic, asthma, migraines, intestinal problems, allergies, chronic fatigue syndrome, mental clarity, mood and overall wellness.
Chiropractors are primary contact health care professionals. Government legislation designates a chiropractor as a Doctor of Chiropractic, which means that a medical doctor referral is not required to consult a chiropractor. As well, chiropractic care is covered by most extensive health care insurances.
