What do Chiropractors treat?

The spine as a whole operates as a functional unit. Each vertebra can affect its neighbor and one portion of the spine may affect or damage other areas of the body.

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.
