Chiropractic care focuses on disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and their effect on general health. These disorders include, but are not limited to, back pain, neck pain, hip pain, arm pain, leg pain, and headaches. Chiropractic Physicians utilize a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes physical examination, diagnosis, and treatment. A chiropractic adjustment or manipulation is used to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that are restricted in their movement. These restricted joints can cause physical and chemical changes to the body that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function. Chiropractic care affects the joints and tissues to help to restore mobility, thereby alleviating pain, muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.
