A Chiropractor is a health care professional focused on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, with emphasis on treatment through manual adjustment and/or of the spine.
A common misconception about chiropractors is that they are only able to treat back and neck pain. Chiropractic manipulation therapy is a hands-on non-surgical treatment of the whole body with the emphasis on the musculoskeletal, and neurological systems. A chiropractor treats patients who suffer from headaches, neck and back pain, tendonitis, sprains, strains, osteoarthritis, scoliosis and other ailments and diseases.
