The practice of Chiropractic is a drug-free, manual approach to health care that includes patient assessment, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors are doctors who practice the art of healing by adjusting, or manipulating, the spinal column and other joints of the body. Healthy, well aligned joints that move with full range of motion allow the nervous system to perform properly, which is vital because it controls every function of your body.
In particular, chiropractors assess patients for disorders related to the spine, pelvis, extremity joints, and their effect on the nervous system. As a result of performing a physical assessment, taking a patient history, and providing a report of findings, chiropractors are able to provide a differential diagnosis for the patient's presenting condition(s) and develop a comprehensive treatment/management plan. Chiropractors are also trained to recommend therapeutic exercise, to utilize other non-invasive therapies, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.
