True healing is indeed a process. Chiropractic does not attempt to "treat" a specific condition but rather attempts to bring the body to a place where it can heal itself. This is achieved by removing obstacles to the natural healing mechanisms of the body. The innate healing abilities of the body are "capitalized" upon by removing obstruction to the control center of the body, the central nervous system.
“Chiropractic adjustments take a body from being static or ’stuck’ and get it back to being a dynamic, self-healing organism.” - Dr. A
