The Doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.

Chiropractic can be described as a healthcare profession that uses manual manipulation (or "adjustment") to restore normal function to the joints in the body, particularly in the spine, with the purpose of improve the function of the body. In the spine, the lack of normal function ("dysfunction") of the intervertebral joints can have detrimental effects, not just on the joints themselves but also on other structures that are intimately connected to those joints. This is because these dysfunctions (also known as "vertebral subluxations" among some chiropractors) can affect the function of the nervous system leading to an disturbance of the communication along the nerveous system possibly causing symptoms such as numbness, tingeling and weakness as well as other possible effects.

We don't think Thomas Edison's "future" is here quite yet, so instead of engaging in turf wars and mudslinging we try to work with interested healthcare providers to ensure our patients receive the care they need and the optimal combination of therapies for them to recover as fast as possible.

We realize that symptoms can have many different causes, that some symptoms need futher differential diagnosis, imaging or other medical procedures before chiropractic care is an appropriate choice. We have therefore tried to create a network of supercompetent and trustworthy healthcare providers to whom we can refer our patients for further evaluation, diagnostic procedures and/or treatment.
