The doctor of chiropractic avenue of approach is primarily the spinal column because it houses and protects the spinal cord which is the switch board of the nervous system. Gray's Anatomy, a standard medical textbook used in chiropractic and medical schools states the following:
       The nervous system includes the central nervous system, which
       is composed of the brain and spinal cord, the peripheral nervous
       system, which is composed of nerves and ganglia and the sense
       organs such as the ear. Its function is to control and coordinate
       all organs and structures and to relate the individual to her/his
       environment.
