also known as Doctors of Chiropractic or Chiropractic Physicians,
diagnose and treat patients with health problems of the musculoskeletal
system and treat the effects of those problems on the nervous
system and on general health. Many chiropractic treatments deal
specifically with the spine and the manipulation of the spine.

spine cause impingement on the nervous system, and adjusting or
manipulating the spine takes pressure off of the nerves and decreases
pain or abnormal function in the body.

routine to get information needed to diagnose and treat patients.
They take the patient's health history; conduct physical, neurological,
and orthopedic examinations; and may order laboratory tests. X-rays
and other diagnostic images are important tools because of the
chiropractor's emphasis on the spine and its proper function.
Chiropractors also analyze the patient's posture and spine using
