What Is Chiropractic

spineChiropractors treat problems related to the bones, muscles, joints and nerves of the body, particularly spinal problems. Treatment is mainly carried out by gentle, specific adjustments of the spinal bones and surrounding tissues, with the aim of restoring normal function and thereby reducing pain and stiffness.
Chiropractors do not use any drugs or surgery.
The effectiveness is supported by many research studies
