Chiropractors are neuro musculo skeletal specialists, trained
in the diagnosis and treatment of spinal and joint disorders.
Chiropractors use specific adjustments to re-align joints in
order to restore normal biomechanics and remove any form of
irritation to the nerves that exit the spine, thereby reducing
pain and discomfort. Chiropractors aim at treating the cause
of the problem as opposed to treating symptoms.
A Biokineticist improves a person's physical status and quality
of life through individualized assessment and exercise prescription
in the dual context of clinical pathology (acute and chronic)
and performance enhancement. A correctly managed rehabilitation
exercise program can help a person suffering from:

hours training their bodies to peak condition in order to perform
and achieve success in their chosen sport. But as Bryce Courtney

jump higher, shoot straighter, kick better, swim harder, hit
further, or box better.
