What Chiropractors Do?
Like other health practitioners, chiropractors follow a standard routine to secure the information needed for diagnosis and treatment. They take the patient’s medical history, conduct physical, neurological and orthopedic examinations, and may order laboratory tests, X-rays and other diagnostic images, which are important tools to further evaluate the spine and its proper function.

Chiropractors, also known as doctors of Chiropractic, diagnose and treat patients whose health problems are associated with the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and the effects of these disorders on general health.
Chiropractors believe interference with these systems impairs normal functions and lowers resistance to disease. They also hold that spinal or vertebral dysfunction alters many important body functions by affecting the nervous system, and that skeletal imbalance through joint dysfunction, especially in the spine, can cause pain.
