Chiropractic care emphasizes diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of musculoskeletal disorders. This includes disorders of the spine and extremities, muscles, and disorders affecting the nervous system. Manual manipulations are performed on the spine, other joints, and soft tissues. There is focus on the body's ability to heal itself. Healing takes place in a conservative manner, without the use of medications or surgery.
In addition to providing manipulations chiropractors provide nutritional counseling and dietary supplement guidance. This promotes overall wellness. The methods used by chiropractors are evidence-based.
