What is Chiropractic?

Date posted: 2012-07-17 18:15

What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is the world’s largest non-surgical, non-drug prescribing, primary health-care profession that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of conditions relating to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves, especially related to the spine.

Chiropractic treatment mainly involves safe, often gentle, specific spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body that are not moving properly. Apart from manipulation, chiropractors may use a variety of techniques including various soft tissue treatments, ice, heat, exercise, acupuncture, as well as advice about posture and lifestyle.

Although chiropractors are best known for treating back pain, neck pain and headaches, which they do very well, patients also consult chiropractors regarding a range of other, related conditions.

The Chiropractic profession is organised internationally and there are international standards for education. Much influential research has underpinned the development of the profession and has come from both within and outside of the chiropractic research communities.
Why choose a CAI Chiropractor?

By choosing a Chiropractor who is a member of the CAI*, you can be assured that your Chiropractor has graduated from an ECCE/CCEI* accredited college. The CAI is the only Irish Chiropractic association to be a full member of the European Chiropractors’ Union and the World Federation of Chiropractic. Membership ensures that chiropractic in Ireland is represented at the highest level.

For quality and safety only a member of the CAI should be consulted for chiropractic care
