Chiropractic CareChiropractors use a variety of treatment methods, including manual spinal manipulation or adjustments. Proper alignment of the body's musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication. Manipulation is used to restore mobility to joints limited by tissue injury caused by a traumatic event, such as falling, or repetitive stress, such as sitting without proper back support.
Chiropractic is primarily used as a pain relief alternative for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue (such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons). It is sometimes used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.
