A health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculo skeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health. There is an emphasis on manual techniques, including joint adjustment and/or manipulation with a particular focus on subluxations (The WHO definition, World Health Organization, Guidelines on Chiropractic, 2005).Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of 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. In addition, doctors of chiropractic recognize the value and responsibility of working in cooperation with other health care practitioners when in the best interest of the patient (The ACC definition, Association of Chiropractic Colleges, 1996).
