Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on musculoskeletal and nervous system disorders, and their effects on general health. Chiropractic care is most often used to treat neuro-musculo-skeletal complaints, including, but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches. Chiropractic is the largest drugless and non-surgical healthcare profession in the United States.
Doctors of Chiropractic - often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians - practice a 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.
The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as the "chiropractic adjustment" or "spinal manipulation." The adjustment's purposes are to restore movement, to improve joint function, and to relieve pain, muscle spasm and irritation of the nervous system. Adjustment is achieved by manually applying a controlled force to joints that have become restricted in their movement.
Acupuncture is an ancient form of health care that originated in China more than 2,000 years ago. It is based on the theory that throughout the human body there are multiple energy pathways or meridians carrying a vital energy called Qi. These pathways travel and connect to all our organs and tissues. When our bodily functions are in balance, sustained by free-flowing Qi, we commonly call this "health." When there is imbalance, there is sickness and/or pain. By stimulating specific points along these pathways, energy is balanced and health is restored.
