Chiropractic is the third largest primary health profession today. Chiropractors recognise the importance of body structures and how they affect our health. They use spinal adjustments, manipulation and other physical means to assist the inherent recuperative powers of the body in the restoration and the maintenance of health. Chiropractors use a range of diagnostic tools including X-ray. The Bachelor of Chiropractic Science aims to teach a wide range of chiropractic diagnostic and manipulative skills in the context of anatomical, physiological and biomedical sciences.
