Common Questions About Chiropractic

What is Chiropractic?

 

Can you define Chiropractic?

 

These questions are commonly asked. According to theAmerican Chiropractic Association (ACA), “Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.  Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches. Doctors of Chiropractic, often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians, practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.”

 

The Bureau of Labor Statiscs (BLS) explains what Chiropractors do. “Chiropractors treat patients with health problems of the musculoskeletal system, which is made up of bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. They use spinal manipulation and other techniques to treat patients’ ailments, such as back or neck pain.”

 

These descriptions provides a basic answer to the question what is Chiropractic. The chiropractic profession is very diverse, and there are a plethora of theories, schools of thought, dogmas, philosophies, and techniques.
