Chiropractic is a drug-free, surgery-free, non-invasive treatment of the spine and associated conditions. It is a very low risk therapy. A Doctor of Chiropractic is trained to recognise conditions that require referral elsewhere and will advise you if this is the case. Even after certain spinal surgeries, a chiropractic check-up may be advisable in order to aid recovery. Chiropractic care is safe for the whole family, from infants to the elderly, including pregnant women.
Chiropractic is Safe. Chiropractic is Natural.
