A chiropractor is a healthcare professional who specializes in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal problems, particularly those related to the spine. Chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between the structure of the body, mainly the spine, and its functioning. Chiropractors believe that proper alignment of the musculoskeletal system can help the body heal itself without the need for surgery or medication.
Chiropractors use manual manipulation techniques, primarily spinal manipulations, to address misalignments or abnormalities in the spine. Chiropractic treatment also involve other therapies such as stretching, exercise, trigger point therapy, modalities and acupuncture.
