Spinal manipulation and the alleviation of neck and low-back pain is what most people associate with the chiropractic profession. However, chiropractors also work with nearly every part of the human body except the internal organs.
The bones and their accompanying nerves and muscles are all part of the focus of this hands-on physical therapy which is aimed at diagnosing and treating a range of musculoskeletal health problems.
Chiropractor’s offices are similar to doctors offices in professional cleanliness yet are often well appointed with decorative elements to give them more of a relaxed feel. Some practitioners prefer to work out of an office building that includes others, but self-employed and individual chiropractors are much more common. Chiropractors set their own hours, averaging about 40 hours a week plus overtime if desired.
