Chiropractic Medicine

Chiropractic medicine uses hands-on manipulations, also known as adjustments, to relieve pain and other problems in the neuromusculoskeletal system, which includes nerves, bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. A patient might seek chiropractic care for back pain, headaches, muscle tightness, or more general health issues such as inflammation. Chiropractic physicians are trained to assess a patient through examination, laboratory testing, and diagnostic imaging. Because of this, some patients use a chiropractor as their primary care provider.
