Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, drug-free approach to healthcare that focuses on the body's natural ability to heal itself. Chiropractors use manual therapies, such as spinal adjustments to treat a range of conditions related to the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system.
Chiropractic care can help with a wide range of conditions, including neck and back pain, headaches, sciatica, joint pain, herniated discs, pinched nerves, and sports injuries. Chiropractors can also provide nutritional advice and lifestyle recommendations to help improve overall health and wellness.
