Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that deals with the body’s main structures: the skeleton, muscles and nerves. By making adjustments to these structures (particularly the spinal column), health can be improved. Chiropractic generally treats disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system, addressing the following:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Joint pain

In addition to chiropractic adjustment, chiropractors may also recommend:

  • Diet, nutrition and lifestyle modifications
  • Exercise
  • Heat and cold
  • Massage
  • Occupational needs

Chiropractic Doctors

Chiropractic doctors are stringently educated as healthcare providers. In fact, educational requirements for a Doctor of Chiropractic (DO) include:

  1. Four years of post-graduate study
  2. An additional two years of training
  3. A National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) exam
  4. Onsite skills training
