Chiropractic care is an area of healthcare whose primary focus is on assessing and treating pain symptoms associated with the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Chiropractic care is concerned with the impact of disorders within these systems, such as back pain, neck pain, joint pain, radiating pain, and headaches. The main goal of the chiropractic profession is to provide patients with effective and high quality health care through the use of conservative and natural interventions. Individuals who practice chiropractic care place their top concerns with the body’s natural ability to heal on its own after an injury, without the use of medication or more invasive techniques, such as surgery. Chiropractic practitioners generally believe that understanding the underlying structure and function of the spine and how it interacts with other systems within the body, such as the musculoskeletal system or the neurological system, is necessary to understanding the cause to the disease and/or injury.
