Chiropractors are highly trained medical doctors specializing in treating disorders of the spine, muscles, joints, and nervous system.
Chiropractors use non-invasive techniques, such as spinal manipulation therapy, kinesiotaping, and custom orthotics, to adjust the spine (and other joints, as necessary). By correcting the alignment of the spine, chiropractors can alleviate chronic pain and improve mobility without the need for surgery or medication. Chiropractic treatment often provides relief from recurrent headaches, neck, shoulder, and back pain, joint stiffness, and gait problems. By improving patients’ posture and flexibility, chiropractic medicine can also prevent work-related and sports-induced muscle and joint injuries.
