Chiropractic is a primary health care profession that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, management, and prevention of neuromusculoskeletal conditions that occur secondary to the mechanical dysfunction of joints and muscles.
While chiropractic is a drug-free healing alternative for neuromusculoskeletal complaints, your doctor of chiropractic is trained to complement the work of other medical specialists. And will recommend consultation with the appropriate specialist if he or she considers it necessary and in the best interest of the patient.
Chiropractors are doctors of chiropractic. Having trained for six years they are required to continue to update their knowledge and attend vital chiropractic seminars. To practice legally as a chiropractor in South Africa, chiropractors must be registered with the Allied Health Professions Council of South Africa. The Chiropractic Association of South Africa (CASA) is the professional body representing over 90% of registered chiropractors in South Africa.
