What Is Chiropractic?
Chiropractors are primary health care providers who specialize in manual adjustments of the vertebrae of the spine and other joints of the body. Adjustment helps relieve pain and restore normal movement to the joints and supporting muscles and ligaments – so you can enjoy your everyday activities again as quickly as possible.
After diagnosing your condition, your chiropractor will recommend a course of treatment specific to you that may also include mobilization and manipulation of the joints, muscle release techniques, and therapeutic exercises. Chiropractors also prescribe rehabilitation and injury prevention strategies.
