What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on the musculoskeletal system, which includes the spine and its associated joints. Chiropractors use spinal manipulation to ease pain and restore function in the body.
Chiropractors are not medical doctors and they do not provide any surgical or diagnostic services. They are licensed to perform non-surgical manual adjustments of the spine called chiropractic adjustments, which may be done by hand or with special chiropractic tools such as a chiropractic adjustment table or a low back adjustment machine.
There are many different schools of thought on what constitutes a chiropractor’s scope of practice, all of which vary based on state law, country law, and professional association guidelines.
What Does a Chiropractor Do?
A chiropractor is a healthcare professional who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders. These disorders can include neck and back pain, headaches, sciatica, herniated discs, whiplash, shoulder and elbow pain, and more. Through manual adjustments to the spine, chiropractors use a variety of techniques to help restore joint mobility, reduce inflammation and promote healing. They may also recommend lifestyle modifications and therapeutic exercises to help improve overall health and wellness.
