Chiropractic Chiropractic is a therapeutic system that focuses on the structure of the body. Central to chiropractic technique is the adjustment of the specific spinal vertebra that are out of alignment and are considered a primary cause of nerve dysfunction. It is based upon the premise that interference with nervous system function predisposes the body to a disease state and that maintaining proper body structure can help the body function well. This system focuses on restoring health and normal conditions by correcting the vertebral segments of the spinal column.
