What is chiropractic treatment?
Chiropractic treatment according to www.chiropractic–uk.co.uk;
“Chiropractic is regulated primary healthcare profession. 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. They have a specialist interest in neck and back pain, but when they assess patients, they take their entire physical, emotional and social wellbeing into account”.
It is the third largest profession in primary health care after medicine and dentistry. There are about 10 million patients every year.
