Be Proactive About Your Health
What is CHIROPRACTIC?
Chiropractic is a hands-on, non-invasive health care discipline that is concerned with the care of the entire body focusing on the neuromusculoskeletal system. Chiropractors are expert providers of spinal manipulations and other manual adjustments to help heal the body. They also can offer advice on health issues such as pain management, exercise, diet and lifestyle, and active rehabilitation.
Doctors of chiropractic, called ‘chiropractors’ are spine, muscle, joint and nervous system experts. Every chiropractor receives at least six to seven years of post-secondary academic and clinical education. They are trained in how to evaluate, diagnose, recommend and deliver a treatment plan that manages issues within these systems, according to your preferences. A chiropractor’s education also includes courses in radiology, pain management, prescribed exercise and rehabilitation, among others.
