Pain Management What is chripractic medicine?

Chiropractic medicine is based on the link between the alignment of the spine and the function of the body. A core tenant of chiropractic medicine is the belief that the body has the ability to heal itself if given proper support. With use of manual manipulation of the spine, chiropractors believe they can improve a person's health without surgery or medicine. Treatment may involve lying on your stomach on a special table while the chiropractor uses his or her hands and elbows to realign the spine. Chiropractic treatments have proven to be effective in helping treat a number of chronic painful conditions, including low back pain.
