What is a Chiropractor and How Can They Help?

Chiropractic services is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on the spine.

Practitioners of chiropractic, called chiropractors, use a variety of techniques, including manual adjustments, to help align the spine and improve overall function of the nervous system. The goal of chiropractic treatment is to reduce pain, improve range of motion, and promote overall wellness.

Chiropractors may also provide advice on lifestyle modifications, such as exercise and nutrition recommendations, to help their patients improve their overall health and well-being. They may also refer patients to other healthcare professionals, such as primary care doctors or physiotherapist, if necessary.

In general, chiropractic care may be helpful for people who are experiencing pain, particularly back pain, neck pain, or headaches, or who have limited range of motion due to stiffness or discomfort. It may also be beneficial for athletes who are looking to improve their performance and reduce the risk of injury, and for people who have been in accidents or sustained injuries.
