Chiropractic is an alternative health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially of the spine. It has esoteric origins and is based on several pseudoscientific ideas.
Who can benefit from chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-invasive treatment supporting the body’s musculoskeletal system and associated neurological function, primarily by providing comprehensive, evidence-informed manual therapy. Chiropractic care is primarily a hands-on, non-invasive and drugless practise that is safe and effective for the management of musculoskeletal conditions – from small children to elderly adults to pregnant women to Olympic athletes. Musculoskeletal conditions can range in severity from minor sprains and strains to back and neck pain to disc herniations and spinal stenosis. As mentioned, musculoskeletal conditions can be mild or severe but they can also be acute or chronic, common or rare, and localized to one body region or widespread. Musculoskeletal conditions come in all shapes and sizes and chiropractors are here to help.
