Chiropractic is a primary health-care profession, so you do not need to be referred by your doctor. A chiropractor is trained to diagnose your problem and will refer you to another health-care practitioner if necessary.
Chiropractors treat problems with joints, bones and muscles, and the effects they have on the nervous system. Working on all the joints of the body, concentrating particularly on the spine, they use their hands to make often gentle, specific adjustments (the chiropractic word for manipulation) to improve the efficiency of the nervous system and release the body's natural healing ability. Chiropractic does not involve the use of any drugs or surgery.
Whether at home, at work or at play, you put your body through a lot each and everyday. Loss of joint movement may be caused by your everyday lifestyle, through accident and injury, or just simple wear and tear.
Because chiropractors understand the underlying stresses that the body can be put under, they can advise you about preventative measures to try and avoid causing damage or injury
