A chiropractor is a health care practitioner who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular problems, with an emphasis on spinal manipulation and manual adjustment. Most chiropractors aim to ease pain and enhance patients’ functioning while also educating them on how to take responsibility for their own health through exercise and other therapies for back treatments.

Fundamental Beliefs and Objectives

Chiropractors are concerned with strong interaction between the nervous system and the spine, and they presume the following:

  • Spinal biomechanical and structural derangements can have an impact on the nervous system.
  • For many disorders, chiropractic therapy can restore the structural integrity of the spine, relieve pressure on sensitive neurological tissue, and enhance individual’s health.
  • The chiropractic therapy concept is to re-establish normal spinal motion, which in turn relieves irritation to the spinal nerve and re-establishes incorrect reflexes.

Conditions Treated

  • Lower back pain and leg pain
  • Neck pain
  • Repetitive strains
  • Headaches
  • Sports injuries
  • Car accident injuries

Chiropractors recommend patients to medical doctors or other health practitioners for treatment of lower back pain when necessary. Many chiropractors have a local referral network or practice in a multi-disciplinary or multi-specialty spine clinic alongside other spine doctors.
