WHAT IS A CHIROPRACTOR?
The University of Johannesburg Chiropractic Clinic offers
a range of treatments for musculoskeletal conditions. This
includes conditions such as headache, neck pain, back pain,
sporting injuries and whiplash. Chiropractors recognise the
inborn ability of the body to heal itself, and the relationship
between structure (primarily the spine) and function
(primarily the nervous system) in the restoration and
maintenance of health.
Chiropractic practitioners are registered with the Allied
Health Professions Council of South
