What is a chiropractor?
A chiropractor is a doctor of musculoskeletal conditions. Chiropractors are indeed doctors and go by the acronym DC, which stands for Doctor of Chiropractic. What makes them a doctor is that they train for 4 years after undergraduate training, and they are meant to diagnose and treat the problem.
These health professionals use a combination of non-invasive manual and physical therapy to realign joints of the human body. Most chiropractors will use manual techniques and exercises, as well as a combination of other techniques, such as the Graston Technique, to solve the problem. Chiropractors use a specially designed table that allows the patient to lay down in various positions, depending on the treated area, and receive treatment. Chiropractic treatments, commonly referred to as adjustments, are manual therapy acts that, over a period of time, aim at relieving musculoskeletal issues within the body, thus relieving pain.
