what is chiropractic?


Doctors of Chiropractic, more commonly known as chiropractors, are primary health


care providers licensed in all 50 states, and are recognized by governmental health care programs


such as Medicare, Medicaid, Workers' Compensation programs and more. Every year, more than 30


million Americans see chiropractors as part of the regular health care programs and with over


84,000 licensed chiropractors, we are the fastest growing health care profession. More than


10,000 students currently enrolled in chiropractic school last year. A chiropractor is involved in the


treatment and prevention of disease, as well as the promotion of public health, and a wellness


approach to patient healthcare. The practice and procedures that are employed by


chiropractors are based on the academic and clinical training received in and through accredited


chiropractic colleges. Chiropractors frequently treat individuals with problems, such as


headaches, joint pain, neck pain, low back pain and sciatica. Chiropractors also treat patients with


osteoarthritis, spinal disk conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sprains, and strains.


However, the scope of conditions that chiropractors manage or provide care for is not limited to


the common pains and problems listed above. Chiropractors also have the training to treat a


variety of conditions such as allergies, asthma, digestive disorders, and other disorders as


new research is developed.
