Who Are Chiropractors?
Chiropractors are doctors that have extensive knowledge of human anatomy and physiology and any conditions relating to the neuromusculoskeletal system. They assess, diagnose, and treat conditions related to muscles, nerves, joints, and ligaments.
They have a very similar approach to Physiotherapists when treating musculoskeletal conditions but are more educated and trained on performing spinal manipulations. Spinal manipulation is a hands-on technique that helps deliver movement within the joints of the spine and extremities. This not only will help decrease pain and restrictions but also allow for optimal functioning of the nervous system (which is the connection between your brain and spinal cord).
