Chiropractors focus on manipulating the spine and other joints of the body, and soft tissue. Chiropractic can be a very effective treatment for chronic pain. In some situations, chiropractic treatment will bring temporary relief from pain. At other times, the relief from pain will be permanent.
"Chronic pain such as back, hip, leg, shoulder, wrist and neck pain and knee problems can get relief. Headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, golfers elbow, tendonitis, sciatica, tennis elbow can all also be treated with chiropractic treatment."
According to the chiropractic philosophy, the human body has an extraordinary ability to heal itself. The chiropractor assists in this healing, and strengthens the body in its ability to heal itself and to protect itself from illness and other types of damage.
In the chiropractic philosophy, the muculoskeletal system, especially the spine, is believed to have great impact on the body's overall health and well being through the nervous system.
