Chiropractic is a type of complementary and alternative medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mechanical diseases of the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine. It is based on various pseudoscientific notions and has esoteric origins. Many chiropractors, particularly those in the field’s early days, have claimed that mechanical diseases of the joints, particularly the spine, have an impact on overall health and that frequent spinal manipulation improves overall health. Manual therapy is the most common chiropractic treatment method, although it may also incorporate exercises and health and lifestyle advice. A chiropractor may be referred to as “doctor” if he or she holds a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Chiropractic clinical training does not fulfill the standards to be a primary care practitioner, despite the fact that many chiropractors consider themselves to be such. With the possible exception of back pain therapy, systematic analyses of controlled clinical studies of therapies utilized by chiropractors have shown little evidence that chiropractic manipulation is helpful. For subacute or chronic low back pain, spinal manipulation may be cost-effective, however the outcomes for acute low back pain were unsatisfactory. There isn’t enough evidence to prove that chiropractic procedures are safe. It is usually linked to mild to severe side effects, with rare occurrences of catastrophic or deadly consequences. The degree of danger of vertebral artery dissection, which can lead to brain damage and death, from cervical manipulation is debatable. Several fatalities have been linked to this practice, and it has been proposed that the link is causal, despite the fact that many chiropractors disagree. Millions of people around the world go to Chiropractors regularly. Their field deals with treating and preventing musculoskeletal disorders through manipulation and other methods. Although viewed as a pseudoscience, the results of chiropractic treatment of back pain has been documented and scientific studies have found the treatment effective.
