It emphasizes the interrelationship between structure and function, and believes in the body’s innate ability to heal itself. This concept of interrelatedness plays an important role in the holistic perspective to the therapy.
This approach treats pain and dysfunction by correcting structural misalignment, mobility and restoring optimal body function by working with multiple systems of the body.
