Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is practiced by Doctors of Chiropractic and is used most often to treat neuro-musculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to low back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.

Doctors of Chiropractic also counsel patients on diet, nutrition, exercise, healthy habits, and occupational and lifestyle modification.
