How can Chiropractic help?

Chiropractor’s may provide care in the form of spinal manipulation or other manual therapies, provide an individualised health care treatment schedule and offer self-management guidelines. The goal of treatment may revolve around increasing function and movement, reducing pain and minimising disability.Know of someone who would benefit from chiropractic care?
