What is a chiropractor?

08 Mar 2016, Posted by Mo Hedayat in

A Chiropractor is a doctor of complementary and alternative health care that focuses on diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system. 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 health care providers in North America after medical doctors and dentists.
