What is Chiropractic Care?

Here is a link to the National Institutes of Health web-page about the capabilities, education and licensing requirements of chiropractors at the national level. Further requirements and/or capabilities vary by state.

The American Chiropractic Association has compiled a collection of questions with answers, and key facts concerning chiropractic care.

Harvard Medical School has this article about using chiropractic care for pain relief.

Benefits Per the Experts

According to The Joint Chiropractic there are several unexpected benefits of chiropractic care. Those benefits include a boost to immunity, improving digestion, increase in energy, possibly lowering blood pressure, better breathing, and possibly a healthier pregnancy. Those are definitely some positives anyone could enjoy.

There’s also HealthSource “America’s Chiropractor” that lists twenty one benefits of chiropractic care. You can view their list in their benefits article. And The Pain Doctor goes a step farther with their even longer list of benefits. Even USA Today, though not precisely an expert, even notes the benefits of chiropractic care.


“The most common side effect of chiropractic adjustment is some soreness or achiness at the site of the adjustment. The Mayo Clinic also notes that some patients may experience fatigue or headache after receiving chiropractic care. In some cases, worsened pain, herniated discs, or stroke are possible, but these are extremely rare.” ~ The Pain Doctor
