Chiropractic is a form of health care that focuses on the integrity of the spine and nervous system. As such, chiropractors are able to locate and the correct areas of interference to the nervous system that could, in fact, lead to many disease processes that occur in the body. It is evidenced that a decrease in overall nervous system function could lead to many common disorders that patients present with. An amalgamation of chiropractic with dentistry is a new step, which Ranbaj Academy of Dental Education and Hospital has taken in India. In this new evolving venture, the co-management of patients with temporomandibular disorders, migraines, trigeminal neuralgia, and facial myalgia by chiropractors and dentists will take place. Such a practice is very popular in North America and other parts of the world.

Restricting the treatment to teeth alone at times, does not completely solve a patient's problem. A more holistic approach is needed. This health care combination would prove especially useful to medically compromised patients where the overall response to the treatment is dulled due to other prevailing systemic conditions. Boosting up the body's innate ability to heal itself should be the ultimate goal. This capability diminishes when the body faces physical, chemical, and emotional stresses. These stresses if left unresolved can wreak havoc on the nervous system. The controlled combination of these disciplines can show some miraculous results, which should be explored and brought to practice.
