The word “chiropractic” means “to be done by hand.” Chiropractors use adjustments to restore joint function and support the nervous system.
They help patients maintain optimal health while avoiding unnecessary drugs or surgery. An estimated 50 million Americans see a chiropractor each year.
A chiropractic adjustment is a very safe, specific, controlled force applied to a joint to restore proper function and mobility.
Accidents, and falls, stress, or overexertion can negatively impact your spine or other joints. These changes impact tissues, the nervous system, and other areas of the body.
Left unresolved, this can make you more susceptible to chronic problems.
Chiropractic adjustments reduce pain, increase movement and improve performance.
The Naturopathic Chiropractic course comprises 11 interesting lessons covering all aspects of chiropractic treatment so that the student of Naturopathy and Holistic Medicine can understand the basic principles of Chiropractic medicine and cooperate with Chiropractic physicians when required.
The first seven lessons include a number of videos. Please view the videos for these lessons, then take the assignment.
After completing each lesson there is a compulsory timed assignment that is automatically scored and the scores will make up part of your final grade.
There is only one attempt allowed for each assignment, so please make certain you have revised the text for each lesson well.
The Final Exam at the end should be taken when all the lessons have been completed – this is also a timed exam taken online and consists of 30 questions taken in 40 minutes.
We wish you well in your studies and the best of luck in your exams!
