What is Chiropractic?

Like many complementary and alternative medicine disciplines, chiropractic focuses on more than just an illness or injury. Chiropractors are interested in treating the whole person. While chiropractic care focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders of the muscles, bones, and joints, with a special emphasis on the spine, it can also include exercise, nutrition, health, and lifestyle counselling. Chiropractic treatments often include spinal manipulation or adjustments and other joint and soft tissue manipulation techniques.
