Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a complementary or alternative medical procedure that was developed in the1890s by D.D. Palmer. It is believed that defects in the neuro-musculo-skeletal system (or spine) causes all heath problems. Chiropractors diagnose, treat and help patients prevent such disorders in the musculo-skeletal system. It is a drug-free and surgery-less medical approach that is mainly used to cure backaches, neck pain, joint-pain and headaches.

Chiropractors perform chiropractic adjustments or spinal manipulations on patients by applying pressure on various joints and parts of the body. This joint and spine manipulation technique causes very little to no discomfort and additional exercises are often suggested to improve the results. Apart from adjustments, chiropractors also give advice on the diet, eating habits and lifestyle of the patient. Although it is popular, this profession is highly controversial.
