What Is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is the largest and most popular natural, drug-free healthcare system in the world. Why? Because chiropractors perform a unique service-they locate misalignments causing stress on your spine, stress that affects your brain, spinal cord, and structural system.

The Chiropractic Approach
Chiropractors have helped millions of people with neck or low back problems, often helping them from pain that sometimes can be disabling. The chiropractor's purpose is to gently rebalance and realign your spine and structural system to relieve pressure on your nerves, discs, and muscles.
What Can a Chiropractor Do?
- Chiropractors realign your spine, releasing pressure on your nerves so you may function at your optimum
- Perform spinal or chiropractic adjustments to improve spinal function and alleviate the stress on your system
- Offer advice on posture, ergonomics (work postures), exercises, and relaxation techniques. This advice should help to relieve the recurring joint irritation and tension in the muscles of the neck and back
Chiropractic Adjustment as Treatment
Used primarily by chiropractors for the past century, spinal adjustment is a safe and effective spine pain treatment. It reduces pain (decreasing the need for medication in some cases).
A well-respected review of the evidence in the Annals of Internal Medicine pointed to chiropractic care as one of the major nonpharmacologic therapies considered effective for acute and chronic low back pain.
