Chiropractors, also known as doctors of chiropractic or chiropractic physicians, diagnose and treat patients whose health problems are associated with the body's muscular, nervous, and skeletal systems, especially the spine. Chiropractors believe interference with these systems impairs normal functions and lowers resistance to disease. They also hold that the spinal or vertebral dysfunction alters many important body functions by affecting the nervous system, and the skeletal imbalance through joint or articular dysfunction.
