Chiropractic is a discipline that is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. Chiropractors have proposed, especially those in the field’s early history, that such disorders affect general health via the nervous system.
It is complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). The main chiropractic treatment technique involves manual therapy, especially manipulation of the spine, other joints, and soft tissues, but may also include exercises and health and lifestyle counseling.1
The primary goal of chiropractic manipulation is to treat areas of decreased movement in the joints, thereby reducing pain and increasing joint function to help improve overall health.
Why chiropractic adjustment?

- Alleviate back and neck pain
What to expect at a chiropractic visit
A chiropractor will first diagnose the patient and understand the symptoms and conditions. Neurological and orthopedic tests will be done to assess the range of motion, muscle strength and movement. After the diagnostic tests, the therapist will assess the parts to be treated and will decide which techniques should be used for an effective treatment.
