What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractors are primary care doctors who use their hands to safely and specifically adjust joints in the spine and other parts of the body. Chiropractic adjustments reduce pain, restore proper nerve function, and improve mobility. In addition to adjustments, chiropractors may also provide soft tissue therapies, lifestyle recommendations, fitness coaching and nutritional advice.
