Chiropractic is from Greek words meaning done by hand. It is grounded in the principal
that the body can heal itself when the skeletal system is correctly aligned and the nervous
system is functioning properly. To achieve this, the practitioner uses his or her hands or an
adjusting tool to pe
rform specific manipulations of the vertebrae. When these bones of the spine are not
articulated, resulting in a condition known as subluxation, the theory is that nerve
transmission is disrupted and causes pain and illness manifested in the back as well as
other areas of the body.
Chiropractic is one of the most popular alternative therapies currently available. Some
would say it now qualifies as mainstream treatment as opposed to complementary
medicine. Chiropractic treatment is covered by many insurance plans. It has become
well-accepted treatment for acute pain and problems of the spine, including lower
back pain and whiplash. Applications beyond that scope are not supported by
current evidence, although there are ongoing studies into the usefulness of chiropractic
for such problems as ear infections, dysmenorrhea , infant colic , migraine headaches,
and other conditions. Patients continue to visit chiropractors with complaints of
headaches and pain or injury to the neck, middle back, arms, or legs.
