Chiropractic is a branch of the healthcare profession that emphasizes the body’s innate healing ability and the role of the nervous system in the achievement and maintenance of health. It is a portal of entry to the healthcare community. Doctors of Chiropractic utilize many therapeutic modalities including spinal manipulation or adjustment, physiological modalities including electrotherapies, ultrasound, and traction among others. They also use rehabilitative exercise, nutritional and lifestyle counseling, as well as other therapeutic and preventative approaches. Doctors of Chiropractic provide health care services in a variety of settings including occupational health and sports medicine practices. Today’s modern Doctor of Chiropractic enjoys good working relations with other healthcare providers, referring and receiving referrals and, when appropriate, with medical specialists, physical therapists, and other health care professionals.
