Chiropractic is a health-care profession, which treats and manages conditions that are due to problems with the joints, ligaments, tendons and nerves; especially those related to the spine. Chiropractors use safe manual therapy methods of treatment. One of the main tools Chiropractors use is a gentle, specific spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine and other areas of the body that are not moving properly. Other therapeutic tools include massage, stretching, ice/heat and acupuncture. Chiropractors will also offer advice on nutrition, sports and exercise.
