Chiropractors are experts trained in the neuromusculoskeletal (neruo=nerve, musculo=muscle, skeletal=bone) system. They diagnose and treat disorders of the spine and other body joints by adjusting the spinal column or through other corrective manipulation. Chiropractors provide conservative management of neuromusculoskeletal disorders including, but not limited to, back, neck and head pain (over 90 percent of conditions treated). The common perception of chiropractic is largely associated with the spine being its sole focus of treatment. However, quite the opposite is true. Modern chiropractors treat a vast range of conditions involving not only the spine and back, but also the extremities; from shoulders to fingertips, and hips to toes. Chiropractors have an in-depth knowledge of the anatomy and biomechanics of the human body, and are trained to address conditions from the source, not just the symptoms. They also advise patients on corrective exercises, lifestyle and nutrition.
