What do Chiropractors treat?

It is essential for a person to have the spine aligned on a regular basis, just as the person would go to a dentist to have his or her teeth cleaned to prevent disease. This keeps the spine from subluxation and is the best preventative measure the person can take against disease.

Many people think that chiropractors treat mainly orthopedic type conditions, such as, backaches, sciatica, whiplash and disc problems. It is true that for these conditions one should try chiropractic first. The art of adjusting the spine has been proven beneficial to these problems since the time of Hippocrates. Other functional disorders such as those that involve organs and internal glands of the body may also respond to chiropractic adjustments. Every gland, organ, and body tissue needs an appropriate nerve supply or some form of stimulation from the nervous system to function properly. The conditions which doctors of chiropractic treat can be as varied and as vast as the nervous system itself.
