Chiropractic health is concerned with the spine, nervous system, and how these systems interact with the rest of the body.
Typical chiropractic treatment primarily consists of bringing the spine into correct alignment. What this looks like depends on the symptoms the patient has, and what the causes are.
Chiropractors in New Zealand have specialized training in the whole human body, not just the spine. To qualify, students have to complete a five-year university course that includes learning about different diseases and injuries that impact the joints as well as diagnostic tools like radiology.
While chiropractic care is focused on the spine, the practice is so much more. Chiropractic philosophy works with the body to improve the way the nervous system functions.
