A chiropractor is a health care professional focused on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on treatment through manual adjustment and/or manipulation of the spine. A Chiropractic adjustment is a procedure done by a chiropractor using the hands or small instruments to apply controlled force to a spinal joint. Chiropractors seek to reduce pain and improve the functionality of patients as well as to educate them on how they can account for their own health via exercise, ergonomics and other therapies. There are many evidence-based benefits of Chiropractic; below are a few.
