Chiropractic is an alternative medical system. It takes a different approach from standard medicine in treating health problems.
The basic concepts of chiropractic are
  • Your body has a powerful self-healing ability
  • Your body's structure (mainly the spine) and its function are related
  • The goal of chiropractic therapy is to normalize this relationship
Chiropractic professionals are doctors of chiropractic, or D.C.s. They use a type of hands-on therapy called spinal manipulation or adjustment. Many people visit chiropractors for treatment of low back pain.
