What is a Chiropractor?

Chiropractors are best known for treating neck and low back pain, but they are trained to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent conditions affecting other joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles.

As a primary healthcare professional, chiropractors can see patients without a referral from another healthcare professional which means that they must also be able to assess patients for their overall health, including physical, emotional and social wellbeing, and make referrals to other health professionals when necessary.

Chiropractors use a range of treatment techniques to help reduce pain and improve function. Manipulation of joints is commonly used together with other myofascial (muscle and fascia) therapies, therapeutic exercise and lifestyle advice, but chiropractors also use a variety of other treatment techniques.
