What is chiro?
A chiropractor is a licensed health professional who uses their hands to treat problems with bones, muscles, and joints. The focus of chiropractic care is often on the spine, and chiropractors commonly treat ailments like back pain, neck pain, headache, injuries, and joint stiffness.
How does a chiropractor work?
A chiropractor’s work is all done with their hands. In fact, the term chiropractor comes from the Greek terminology ‘chier’ meaning ‘hand’, and ‘praktikos’ meaning ‘done’. At the start of a chiropractic visit, the chiropractor will examine your spine, first visually and then by palpating and feeling the bones and soft tissues with their hands. Occasionally they may refer you for an X-ray or MRI, but more often then not they can treat you at your visit.
What are the chiropractic treatment options?
Once your chiropractor has examined you, they will discuss their recommended treatment options with you. Common chiropractic treatment options include techniques like:
- Spinal manipulation (also known as an adjustment)
