A Doctor of Chiropractic uses hands-on spinal manipulation and other alternative treatments. The approach is that proper alignment of the body’s musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine and surrounding soft tissues, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication.
Manipulation (adjustment) is used to restore mobility to joints restricted by tissue injury caused by a traumatic event, such as falling, or repetitive stress, such as sitting without proper back support.
Chiropractic treatment is primarily used as a pain relief alternative for muscles, joints, bones, and connective tissue, such as cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. It is often used in conjunction with conventional medical treatment.
