After medicine and dentistry, chiropractic treatment is the world's third largest health care system. The word chiropractic comes from the words cheiro (hand) and prakrikos (done by hand). Chiropractic treatment involves manipulating the backbone to bring back into alignment the vertebrae that are partially misaligned or misplaced. This restores the normal flow of neuro-hormonal secretions in the spinal cord and the attached nerves, so that the body recovers from pain and the diseases causing that pain.

Chiropractic treatment manipulates the bones and muscles of the body, usually by hand. This applies more to the spinal column or the backbone, which is adjusted to rehabilitate the normal functioning of the nervous system.

As an art, chiropractic treatment is very old. Ancient Greeks manoeuvred legs for relief of low back problems. Many tribes in North America like the Sioux and Creek and the Aztecs, Mayans, and Toltecs of Central America used manipulative practices. However, in the context as it is understood today, chiropractic treatment was formulated by Daniel David Palmer in 1895. He established the Palmer School of Chiropractic at Davenport, USA, in 1903.

Chiropractic treatment  works by manipulating partially misaligned and dysfunctional vertebrae  and other joints off-centre that may be impinging upon normal neurological functioning. Through chiropractic treatment, these maladjustment are removed so that the flow of neuro-hormonal secretions is restored and the body recovers from pain and the diseases causing that pain. Pain is the body's signal of distress or dysfunction. Caught early enough, chiropractic treatment can adjust this, helping to put the body's own healing mechanisms back on track.

Chiropractic treatment lays stress on the concept of an individual's predisposition to disease. Chiropractors look for muscular and skeletal trauma from falls and accidents, strains and sprains. They note postural and occupational distortion that may induce abnormal joint function or partial contraction of muscles.

Chiropractic treatment involves pushing, pulling, and leveraging muscle against bone, and bone against bone. The more traditional practitioners limit their therapy to adjusting the spine. The more liberal ones add complementary or auxiliary treatments, such as nutritional supplements, relaxation techniques, and diet counselling.

Benefits Of Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic treatment works on three levels:
1. Mechanical / Anatomical. It restores movement by improving anatomical relationships and functions through a variety of spinal manipulation and joint mobilisation techniques.
2. Neurological/Reflexive. It tackles specific soft and hard tissue (joint, muscles, and fascial) by manipulations that change nerve signalling patterns, and therefore, physiological functioning.
3. Mental/ Emotional Role. It exercises healing aspects of human control with its hands-on methodology, and its effect on the mind and motivation of a patient.
Chiropractic treatment is best used for pain and disorders before the body has deteriorated into a pathological or diseased state.
Chiropractic treatment is very useful for those who experience low back pain, slipped discs, and sports injuries. Clients are treated for bad posture, sprained muscles and ligaments, and accident-related injuries. Chiropractic treatment has also helped rheumatic and arthritic conditions of neuromuscular or vascular origin, affecting both the spine and limbs.
Chiropractors treat neuritis, lumbago, sciatica, neuralgia, and knee, hip, and muscular pains. Some chiropractors also excel in treating dysfunction with psychosomatic origins, such as migraines and other headaches, neurosis, and conditions arising due to stress. They are also said to be able to correct visceral dysfunction affected by irritation of the autonomic nervous system.
