Chiropractor Dr Marius De Wet talks to Sara-Jayne King about chiropractic healing.

We deal mainly with problems of the sone and it is a hands-on profession.

The spine and neurological system is the structure that controls the function of the body. Al neurological impulses start in the brain and travel down the spinal column into the spinal nerve and then into all the muscles and organs.

It's like having an optimally working computer...and the human body is a mechanical machine.
