Chiropractic care can be effective for certain problems. There are not a lot of good medical studies showing that there is significant benefit from chiropractic care, but if the chiropractic care involves strengthening of the muscles and exercises that can help stabilize the spine, that certainly has value and can certainly help a patient’s symptoms.
