What does a chiropractor do?

 


Chiropractors use chiropractic adjustments as one of the many tools to help to normalize the performance of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Chiropractic adjustments are simply inputting a force into a joint in order to help restore normal motion of that joint.

 

 


The idea that the spine was acutely connected to health is nothing new. In fact, the ancient Greeks and other early civilizations used spinal adjustments as a form of healthcare. Hippocrates, the Father of Western Medicine, stated that “physical structure is the basis of medicine” and went into great detail concerning the importance of the spine to good health. Hippocrates is quoted as saying: “Look well to the spine for the cause of disease.”

 

 

How Does Spinal Manipulation Work?

 

There are well over 100 types of adjustment techniques used by chiropractors throughout the world. Some practitioners may use force and twisting, while other techniques are more gentle. Regardless of how they are performed, these techniques are intended to restore or enhance joint function with the objectives of reducing pain and resolving joint inflammation.
