Chiropractic is a complimentary/alternative, hands-on, drug-free approach to health.
From chiro- ‘hand’ + Greek praktikos ‘practical’, from prattein ‘do’.
A chiropractor’s main concern is the spine and nervous system and how well they are both functioning. Chiropractic has become the third most used primary health care profession in the world after medicine and dentistry. It works on the premise that good health is partially dependent on a normally functioning spine and nervous system.
