Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that is concentrates on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromusculoskeletal disorders and dysfunction. During a chiropractic session, emphasis is placed on providing manual therapy treatment through a manipulation or manual adjustment of the spine. Chiropractors base their treatment methods on a hands-on, manual therapy, and holistic approach that allows the body to heal itself. While spinal manipulation is what chiropractors are typically known for, they can employ many different manual therapy techniques to help you feel better.

Chiropractors normally seek to improve the mechanics and functionality of the body as well as reduce pain. They also educate a patient on how to account for their personal health through ergonomics, exercises or other practices that are essential in increasing the healing power of the body.

Chiropractic care focus on the existing relationship between the spine, muscles, joints, and the nervous system. Chiropractors are like mechanics for your body. They test for problematic areas of pain, mobility, tightness and tension, both in the spine (as well as other structures) and come up with a manual therapy treatment plan to reduce pain and tension, improve range of motion, restore nerve impingements, to help your body heal faster and optimally.
