Chiropractors are trained to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, and muscles), as well as the effects these disorders can have on the nervous system and general health. As well as using a range of techniques to reduce pain, improve function and increase mobility, including hands-on manipulation of the spine, chiropractors are able to offer a package of care which includes advice on self-help, therapeutic exercises and lifestyle changes.
