A chiropractor is a health care professional who diagnoses and treats mechanical disorders throughout the musculoskeletal system. While chiropractic treatments are generally considered to be outside the realm of traditional, mainstream medicine, countless Americans have visited chiropractors for relief in recent years.

In many ways, a chiropractor’s services overlap with those of other medical professionals. A chiropractor may offer varying degrees of:
Spinal manipulation, or "adjustment," encompasses a wide variety of techniques that are used to increase range of motion, flexion, and extension without damaging the vertebral joints (facet joints) in the spine. These techniques are by far the most common treatments offered by a chiropractor and can be effective if incorrect spine alignment has caused nerve compression.
