According to the chiropractic philosophy, this intelligence is also present within the human body and has been given the name of innate intelligence.

The entire organization of the human body works like a well orchestrated ensemble. It is really the finest piece of machinery that is present on this planet or elsewhere. But there are areas in this machinery from where the disruption to this synergetic flow can take place. One such area is the spine. The reason behind this is that the spine is movable and has 24 vertebrae that can be displaced. The displacement of even a single vertebra can lead to its impingement upon the nerves and thus that might lead to the blocking of the flow of information and life force from the brain to the body and back. This blockade is known as the subluxation.
The entire focus of chiropractics is to locate these subluxations in the body and then removing them by using specific procedures. This restores the free flow of the life energy and information within the body and helps in the healing process. If it is accompanied with proper diet and nutrition and the specific instructions of the chiropractor are followed then the healing would be a lot easier and quick.
