Chiropractic medicine is a form of alternative medicine that mainly deals with the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. A chiropractor uses spinal adjustments, extremity adjustments, manipulation, and other techniques to manage patients’ health concerns, such as neck pain, back pain, and other joint pain like those to the shoulders and ankles. They aim to improve patients’ functionality and quality of life, by properly aligning the body’s musculoskeletal structure and enabling the body to heal itself without medication or surgery.
