Chiropractic is based on the important relationship between the spine and the nervous system. One of the most basic ideas in chiropractic is that dysfunction in the spine and its joints can lead to problems within the nervous system, and since the nervous system controls and co-ordinates all the system of the body, spinal dysfunction can have wide ranging effects on the body's health.
