What is a chiropractor?

Chiropractors are doctors of complementary and alternative health care that focus on diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders of the skeleton, muscles, and nerves of the whole body, not just the spine. Chiropractic is a drug-free non-surgical approach to health care. Chiropractors use manual therapy including spinal adjustments and soft-tissue manipulation as well as prescription of exercises and lifestyle counseling to treat a wide range of health problems. Chiropractors are the 3rd largest group of healthcare providers in North America after medical doctors and dentists.
